How to Hide Your Orders on Amazon

Want to keep your more personal purchases private from a nosy spouse or child? Amazon’s leaves your purchase history readily accessible through the “Returns & Orders” tab at the top of every page. But you can easily hide orders on Amazon from prying eyes by archiving them. Here’s how.

The best way to hide your Amazon orders is to archive them so they don’t show up in your regular orders list. The option to archive an order is only available when browsing Amazon on your computer or by using your phone’s web browser in desktop mode. You can’t use an app or Alexa device to perform this function.

1. On your computer go to Amazon.com (see instructions below on how to view a desktop version of the Amazon website on your phone)

2. Click on the “Returns & Orders” tab.

3. Find the item you want to hide in your orders list.

4. Below the order with the item you want to hide, click on “Archive order.”

5. In the pop-up window, click “Archive order” again.

Once your order has been archived, it won’t appear under “Returns & Orders.” If you need to find your order, you can go to  “Account & Lists” and scroll down and select “Archived Orders.” You’ll need to log-in again to your Amazon account before you see your archive orders. You can choose to “Unarchive Order” if you want to return your order to your regular order list.
