If you share an Amazon account with someone, there may be times when you want to hide certain orders from them. Otherwise, you might spoil the surprise when you want to buy them a birthday present. Here’s how to hide an order on Amazon and delete your Amazon search history.

How to Hide an Order on Amazon

To hide an order on Amazon, you need to archive it. To do this, open a web browser on your computer and go to Then log in to your account and then click Returns & Orders. Then click Archive order for every item that you want to hide.

Go to on any web browser. You can’t hide an order on Amazon using the smartphone app.

Note: If you are using a smartphone, you have to open a browser app, type into the address bar, and tap Go. Then, on an iPhone, tap the three-dot icon in the bottom-right corner and select Request Desktop Site. If you’re on an Android device, tap the three-dot icon in the top-right corner and select Desktop Site.

Then click Returns & Orders. You will see this in the top-right corner of the browser window next to the shopping cart icon.

Note: If you are not already logged in to your Amazon account, click Accounts & Lists next to Returns & Orders. Then enter your username and password, and click Sign In.

Next, find the item you want to hide. You can scroll down to see all the orders you placed in the past three months. To see older orders, click the “past 3 months” dropdown and select a different time range. Then click Archive Order. You will see thislink just below the picture of the item. Finally, click Archive order in the pop-up window. 

Archiving your orders will not delete them from your account. When you archive or hide an order, it will just remove them from the default order history view, but you can still find them by going to Accounts & Lists > Archived Orders.

From here, you can restore an item by selecting Unarchive Order.

This will bring back the orders you have archived to the main Orders page of your account. Unfortunately, you cannot completely delete any order from Amazon, but you can delete your Amazon search history. Here’s how:
