How to enable Pinterest dark mode (mobile and web)

Nearly a year ago, Pinterest announced that they were working seriously on improving their mobile website due to serious outrage from their users. People were complaining that the UX of their mobile website is seriously awful.
Like many smart companies, Pinterest took the feedback by heart and made some significant changes the way their mobile website feels, looks and works.

As a side “feature” to the new mobile web experience came the “night mode”.

Although it looks crisp, we are sad to see that it hasn’t been implemented on the desktop, nor the mobile apps (iOS and Android). It is understandable that bringing night mode can take up resources both in terms of human power and money, but the company made the first move. Why stopping there? :)
Nevertheless, here are 2 short guides on how to enable dark mode for the mobile web and desktop web versions of Pinterest. This is as dark as it can gets if you are a Pinterest avid user and dark mode fan.
