All too frequently, when I search for an image using google, up pops "Pinterest" inviting me to sign in with my google account. It's like a virus and has been annoying the hell out of me. A bit of searching revealed that I am not alone.

The solution seems to be to add "-pinterest" to the end of the google search request. This can be added to your default search engine in your browser (at least with Chrome), ie  Default browser "google.co.uk - pinterest" and pinterest is excluded from all search results.

I also strongly object to being presented with a click button, with my google email address and password, already filled in when landing on Pinterest.

I use Firefox for some browsing where I have Duckduckgo set up as my default search engine. Horses for courses.
