Introduction: What is Dark Mode? Why do I need it?
Dark mode has quickly become the new standard for apps and websites that have a predominantly dark background. Dark modes are designed to be easier on your eyes in an otherwise dark environment. They also help you focus more on joyfully reading articles or watching videos without having to adjust your screen brightness every few minutes, which is just an added perk. This is particularly true for the folks that suffer from too much light entering their eyes during the day and experience tired eyes from working in front of a screen all day. This article is an introduction to how to turn dark mode on on various platforms, and some of the benefits of doing so.
There’s no need to go into the very technical details on how dark mode affects your cookie settings. Suffice to say, a lot of websites have had a bad influence on your browser by offering intrusive third-party cookies. It’s well worth doing some research about dark mode for all the sites you visit frequently to see if dark mode is making things better for you. You might want to do this before checking out more on the subject and then put it at the top of the list.
The more customization you can apply to a website, the better. Dark mode is one of those many customizable choices that can enhance your browsing experience. Unfortunately this feature is not available on all websites so you’ll have to keep checking them on a regular basis. Some apps allow you to go into the settings and change the dark theme as well, although it may take a bit of research to find out which app allows this.
It’s also nice to know if you can toggle the dark mode on a website as well. The amount of customization and features available for a website might be one of the primary factors when deciding if dark mode is necessary. If you’ll be spending a significant amount of time on one site, customizing options and making sure it’s not too bright or too dark to read, might be important to your experience.

How to Customise Your Night Theme in Pinterest
As mentioned in the introduction, Pinterest is a visual platform where you can save and store images that you would like to refer to later. However, the black background makes it difficult to view your screen under available lighting. Luckily, Pinterest offers a night theme that can be enabled by clicking the icon along the top (between notifications and the gear icon) of your browser window. This is useful if you are working with a dark background, or if there is little lighting available. The night theme offers a darker background and different colored text to make it easier on your eyes. Here’s how to customize your night theme in Pinterest.
1. Click the icon along the top of your browser window to open a drop-down menu, and then click “Night Theme”.
2. Click on the menu button at the top right of your screen that looks like three dots in a horizontal line to open a drop-down menu, and then click “Night Theme”, which is next to “Settings”.
3. Click “Change your theme” to open a drop-down menu and then click “Night Theme”.
4. Click “Deselect this option” if you do not want the night theme to be available to all users when they log in. You might want to keep this box checked, but it is completely up to you.
