Amazon is one of the world’s largest online retailers, and millions of people use its mobile app to place orders and track their purchases. However, not everyone wants their Amazon order history to be on display, especially in shared device settings or for privacy reasons. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of hiding your Amazon orders on the Amazon mobile app.
Step 1: Open the Amazon App
Ensure that you have the Amazon mobile app installed on your device, and then open it.
Step 2: Log In to Your Amazon Account
Log in to your Amazon account using your email and password. If you’re not already logged in, this step is essential to access your order history.
Step 3: Access Your Order History
Once you’re logged in, tap the three horizontal lines in the upper-left corner of the app to open the menu. Scroll down and select “Your Orders.” This will take you to your Amazon order history.
Step 4: Hide an Order
- Find the order you want to hide from your order history list.
- Next to the order, you will see the “Archive order” option or an equivalent option such as “Hide order” or “Remove from view.” Tap on this option.
Step 5: Confirm the Archive
Amazon will ask you to confirm your decision to hide the order. Once you tap “Archive order” or the equivalent option, the order will be hidden from your order history. This means it won’t be visible in the default order view when you access your order history.
Step 6: Access Archived Orders
If you ever need to review or reference your archived orders, you can do so by going to the “Your Orders” section and tapping “Archive” or “Hidden Orders.” Here, you’ll find all the orders you’ve chosen to hide.
Step 7: Unhide an Order (If Needed)
If you want to unhide an order and make it visible in your order history again, navigate to the “Archived” or “Hidden Orders” section. Next to the order you wish to unhide, tap the “Unarchive order” or equivalent option. This will move the order back to your main order history.
- Privacy and Security: Hiding orders can help protect your privacy, especially if you share your Amazon account or use the app on a shared device. However, keep your account credentials secure to prevent unauthorized access.
- Order Updates: Archiving an order doesn’t affect the order itself or any updates related to shipping or delivery. You can still receive notifications and track the progress of your hidden orders.
- Amazon Website: You can also hide orders on the Amazon website by following similar steps. Log in to your Amazon account, go to “Your Orders,” and hide or unhide orders as needed.
Hiding orders on the Amazon app is a simple process that can help you maintain privacy and keep your order history organized. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you can easily hide and unhide orders as needed to customize your order history according to your preferences.
