    When people visit the AMP version of my site, they sometime share the AMP version on social media sites by directly copying the url, or using a share extention which copies the browser url. For example, this pin:

    https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/413557178273691863/

    Links to the AMP version of the article. This means that desktop users then click the link and arrive on the AMP version. I’d prefer them to arrive on the desktop version if they’re on a desktop browser – is there a way to detect a user is on a desktop browser and redirect them? Thanks!

    Hi @lozula,

    That’s not upto us. It’s upto Pinterest to decide where to send the users.

    Can you ask them?

    Hi @yunuserturk,

    Because everyone sharing on web website adress. And when they copy address it is with/amp/ version.
    I have many backlinks with /amp/ and anyone can click this backlinks on desktop.

    Exactly – if someone visits the AMP version on mobile, they then usually share the AMP version on their social media sites or wherever. Then, desktop users arrive at the AMP version. There is a toggle in the plugin to redirect mobile users to AMP, it would be nice to have a similar toggle to redirect desktop users to non-AMP. Thanks!
