Receiving a large volume of notifications that you need to sift through every day can be exhausting. This can be especially challenging when you are managing multiple Pinterest accounts.
You already have your personal account that receives updates from your friends, the people and boards you follow, etc. Then you also probably have a business account that gets alerts for the same events.
Using Pinterest for your business means you have to be attentive to events regarding your account. You have to be able to quickly respond to comments or messages from your clients. Failure to do so might drive those customers away.
However, you can’t just drop what you’re doing each time you hear a notification sound. It might just be alerts from your personal account, which don’t really need immediate attention.
A simple solution is to turn off some Pinterest notifications on Android.
What are Pinterest notification types?
Whenever there are updates or messages on your Pinterest account, you will receive notifications. There are three types of notifications based on where you will receive them – in your email, on your mobile device, and on Pinterest.
1. On Pinterest
These notifications can be seen when you open the Pinterest app on your mobile devices or when you access Pinterest.com on a browser.
2. By push notifications
These notifications will appear directly on your mobile device’s notification bar, even without opening the Pinterest app.
3. By email
These are notifications that are sent directly to your email.
You can edit where you want to see notifications in your account settings. You may also choose which events will trigger a notification.
