If you don’t want something purchased from Amazon to show up in your order history, you need to hide it. But is it possible? This guide explains how to hide or delete product details from your Amazon order history.
You bought something you liked from Amazon. But you don’t want your spouse or anyone else with account access to know that. That is why you have come to this page for details.
Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t allow users to remove their order history. They securely store information about the products you have purchased from the time your account is created to the time it is closed. This will help you know the date and price of each item purchased at a later moment.
In other words, closing your Amazon account is the only way to delete your order history.
There is an alternative solution. It is possible to hide your order details by archiving it.
How to Hide Amazon Orders Easily

Step 2: Locate order that you want to hide

Thereafter, the archived order will not appear in your purchase history. Amazon allows you to archive or hide up to 500 orders like this.
How to View Hidden Orders in your Amazon Account
