Can I recover a deleted pin?

Once a pin is deleted, it's gone for good. So make sure you're certain before hitting delete.

Is there a limit to how many pins I can delete at once?

No official limit, but mass deletions might trigger temporary blocks from Pinterest if it appears suspicious.

Do these steps apply to group boards?

Yes, but only pins you've added can be deleted.
