My Pinterest Was Just Hacked Into / July Currently

Uggghhhh!! Just went online and checked pinterest, only to find that my account had been recently hacked.  How do I know?  Well, 2 new boards had been added one called "cash is great" and the other one was titled "things I need" each had some spam ad pinned inside.  Then under my personal teaching board that I know was created by me, multiple copies of the same pin about a mobile app to send text message reminders to families I had posted about a week ago were invading my board, it was literally pinned in there 7 different times!  So, logically I thought that this post may be the culprit!  If any of you have a pin that looks like the pic on the right - I'd suggest to delete it ASAP!

Being new to the teaching blog world, the monthly currently seems to be all the rage so I thought I'd join in post 4th!  Also, Happy International Blog Hopping Day!
Well, I'm off to investigate how to let Pinterest know of this hacking experience and then TBA's blog hopping partay! :)


  1. OH no! that stinks! Sorry to hear this happened. I will have to check and see if I have that pinned. Thanks for the heads up!

  2. I found your blog through a linky party! Thanks for the info on a Pinterest Hack, I hadn't heard of that happening yet. Why do hackers have to ruin all of our fun?! ;) I am your newest follower, a 3rd grade teacher entering my fifth year of teaching.
    Have a great Thursday!


  3. Hi Antonia I found your blog through the currently Linky. Happy to have found you!

  4. I found your blog through the link party as well! Yay for new blogs to follow =)

    I'll have to keep my eye on the Pinterest account now! It seems that hackers are getting into everything!

    Thank a great day!



  5. I am so sorry about your Pinterest account...The hacker must not be a teacher because we all know that our boards are sacred!

    I wish summer could be a bit longer too.

    I am happy to be your newest follower. I would love for you to hop over and visit me when you get the chance. =)
