What are private tabs?

A secret board on Pinterest is a private space within a user profile that is not accessible or seen by other users, much less the public or the general internet user, and is basically used to upload all those pictures or so-called Pins they want to have in a place accessible only to the user who created said private board and to those who have honorably invited them to see them.

Put simply, a private board would be a suspiciously limited space on Pinterest where you can store images or Pins that shouldn't be viewed publicly for whatever reason you deem appropriate.
