Sick of the Pinterest news alerts? Me too so I figured out how to turn them off!
After the latest update of my Pinterest App I started to notice I was getting all kinds of notifications. I thought this was really odd because I had them off and certain Pinterest alerts set to email. I went into the settings on the Pinterest website to discover I had them all set properly. So then I went to the iPhone notifications and Pinterest app. I confirmed I had everything set the way it was before.
Here Pinterest added a section called News and that news section without your permission gives alerts. So if you are worried about bandwidth or just plain sick of alerts there is a fix. Dont delete the Pinterest application. Instead simply log out of Pinterest every time you use the app. That disables those pesky news alerts.
