On Friday, the Pinterest site was hacked. Our local news ran a story on this and you can read about it here. I would strongly advise everyone to change their Pinterest passwords immediately to something very strong.
With this being said, there is a way that you can SAVE a copy of your Pin Boards as a PDF for a backup. Here’s what you do:
Go into each one of your boards one at a time
Press Control P (which will bring up the printing box)
Instead of using the print option, look for “print to PDF” or “save as PDF”
Save them where you would like and choose a file name
(I created a master PINTEREST file & when I saved each Board, I named it exactly what the boards name is)
Repeat this for all of your Boards
Hint: Make sure all of your Pins are done “fetching” or your PDF will not be complete with all your pins
Hint: Do this often and save your Boards on a weekly or monthly basis and when you do, you can overwrite the pin board you have already saved on your computer.
What’s nice about this, is that you now have all of your Boards saved, all of the photographs with descriptions below each photo is showing and the photo’s are clickable links too in your PDF.
Just wanted to pass along some valuable information in case any of your Boards or Pinterest accounts were hacked. Take some time today and backup your Boards as a PDF and save them to your computer, because I know that if I woke up one day and found no Boards on my Pinterest account, I would be upset.
