How To Delete Amazon Order History 2021
Can You Delete an Amazon Order from Your History?
Be advised that if someone knows about how archived orders work and has access to your Amazon account, they can find the orders you’ve hidden. This means that archiving is not a foolproof way to hide the history of buying something from Amazon. To do that, you’d need to begin using a new Amazon.com account and deactivate your old one. Even after deactivating, it’s possible (maybe even likely) that Amazon.com will always keep a record of everything your deactivated account ever bought from the site.
The short answer is that you can’t completely delete an order from your history. Currently, there is no way to truly delete an order you’ve placed through Amazon from your purchase history. The only alternative is to “archive” an order, which is Amazon’s way of allowing you to hide an order from your main order history. Even when archived, the order will still remain in Amazon’s system (linked to your account), and it can be seen on your “Archived Orders” page through the desktop website version of Amazon.com.
How to Hide or Delete Amazon Order History
The easiest way to hide orders from other family members is to use an Amazon Household Account. This is only available for prime members and it allows you to share benefits with another adult and children in your family. By using an Amazon Household Account, you can keep all your purchase history, lists, and recommendations private and separate from the other members of your family.
There are multiple reasons for which you may want to hide your Amazon order history. Perhaps you want to hide an occasional purchase from your history, so you won’t spoil the surprise of a birthday gift or perhaps you purchase something that you don’t want your children to see when they use your account.
