Amazon does not only allow shoppers to hide their orders, they can also delete them altogether if they so wish. On Amazon, hiding your orders can be done simply by moving them to the “Archived Orders” section. Just like that and you have hidden your Amazon and made them private.

Step 2: A list of your orders for the past 3 months will appear. On that page, choose the orders that you wish to hide and then click "View Order Details".

Step 3: To hide the selected purchases or orders, select Archive Order.

Step 4: The selected orders will then be moved to the Archived Orders page of your account. They will no longer appear in your order history. You can always find them on this same page whenever you wish to check your order history.

Can You Hide Orders on the Amazon App?

For those who aren’t able to access their accounts on Amazon via a browser, there’s the option of hiding orders via the Amazon app. Here are the steps to get it done:

Step 1: Tap to open the Amazon app on your device and then log in to your account.

Can You Hide Orders on Amazon Household?

Amazon Household is an excellent way to share your Amazon Prime benefits with the rest of your family. With this Prime package, a single account is shared by multiple users (often members of the same household/ family), each with their own unique profiles. That implies that anyone can order via the same account but have the items displayed only in their profile.

However, there’s a catch. While the Amazon Prime Household account is password protected, individual user profiles within the account are not. Meaning, thatPnosy family members are at liberty to check what other users on the same account are searching or ordering on Amazon. To fix this, you’ll need to have two or more Amazon accounts, each dedicated to select users in the family.

How to Place a Discreet Order on Amazon

When shopping for a gift for a loved one or friend, you don’t want to lose the element of surprise by letting them know whatever it is that you have brought them. Besides gifts, others may just wish to have their orders delivered in packages that are don’t reveal what’s inside. Luckily, Amazon’s Discreet Order option takes care of all these scenarios.

So what’s a Discreet Order on Amazon? Well, as the name suggests, this is a type of order that’s delivered in a package that doesn’t reveal what’s inside. That being said, here’s how to place a Discreet Order on Amazon:

Step 1: Start by logging in to your account on Amazon.

Step 2: Scroll through the products page and find the item(s) that you wish to order.

Step 3: Add the product(s) to cart and thenat checkout, select “Ship in Amazon Packaging” That will automatically hide the option for “Item arrives in Packaging That Reveals what’s inside”.

Step 4: Just like that and you have successfully placed your Discreet Order on Amazon.

Note that Discreet Orders come with double the amount of packaging that Amazon normally uses on products. For the environmentally conscious, this comes with the downside of adding to the problem of environmental pollution. As such, Amazon recommends going for this option only if you really have to.

Other ways of making your Amazon orders private

Besides archiving your orders in your Amazon account, there are a couple of other ways that one can use to make their Amazon orders private. Below we have discussed two of the most common ones:

1. Activate Browser Incognito mode

For those sharing the same Amazon Prime Household account, keeping your orders private can be a little cumbersome, especially if everyone in the family accesses and places orders on Amazon via the same computer. However, if you activate incognito mode on your browser, the problem will be as good as solved. Incognito mode ensures that all your search history is hidden from any other user who may access the PC later. Essentially,your browser won’t capture or record your search history. Meaning, there’s no chance of anyone monitoring your search and order history on Amazon or Google via the web browser on the household PC.

2. Having a secure password for your account

A strong password is a must if you access your Amazon account on shared devices (common in household settings or among friends). A secure password will not only protect your account, but also ensure no one else can access your search and order history on Amazon. To secure your password, experts recommend using a combination of lower &uppercase letters, numbers, and symbols. To provide an extra layer of security to you Amazon account and keep your Amazon orders private, never save your login credentials on any shared device or browser. You don’t want another user logging in to your account accidentally while they are trying to access their accounts on the same device.

Bottom line

Hiding your orders on Amazon is very easy. It is as simple as moving the particular order to the Archived Orders section in your account. Besides that, you can also take other measures to secure your Amazon account and keep your orders private, especially if you share your PC and other devices with friends and family. Among these measures include creating a strong password or activating incognito mode on your browser. With that said, we wrap up this post. Hope you found it very helpful.
