If you have shared your Amazon account with another person or your Amazon Prime login is shared by your family, you may occasionally need to conceal an order from your purchase history discreetly.

You may want to hide Amazon orders to preserve the element of surprise for an occasion like birthdays or to prevent others from coming across private accessories.

This article explains how you can hide orders on Amazon.

Hiding your Amazon orders: A step-by-step guide

In this section, we’ll present a detailed process of how you can hide your Amazon orders.

Step 1: Log in to your Amazon account and locate the Returns & Orders tab at the page’s top-right corner.

Step 2: You’ll see all your orders within the past three months. Thoroughly scan the list until you spot the specific order you wish to conceal. Click on View Order Details to delve into the order specifics. If you can’t immediately find it, utilize the search bar to expedite the process.

Step 3: Once you’ve accessed the order details, locate and click the Archive Order option designated for the item you intend to hide. After that, confirm your action by clicking on Archive Order once more. This action extends to all times you have ordered in the same transaction and date.

With this action completed, anyone browsing your order history won’t stumble upon the concealed order. However, it’s important to note that the archived order is still accessible via the order archive.

Alternatively, you can click the Archive order button below the specific order. This will save you a few seconds.

You can navigate to Amazon’s Archived Orders page. Access the page by navigating to Accounts and Lists > Your Account > Archived Orders.

Note: Unfortunately, there’s no way for you to archive your Amazon orders via the app. You will have to access the Amazon website to do that.

Amazon Household: A more secure solution

While the above method functions, it’s worth acknowledging that it isn’t the most foolproof solution. Those with a curiosity for detail could still unearth order information. A more robust alternative exists, particularly for Amazon Prime subscribers—Amazon Household.

Amazon Household facilitates sharing Prime benefits and digital content among two adults and up to four teenagers and children. This system permits you and your family members to maintain separate Amazon accounts, facilitating the exchange of secret gifts while enjoying the convenience of free delivery without requiring an additional Prime subscription.

Furthermore, you can grant your teenage children their Amazon accounts with Amazon Household. This setup means that they can make purchases only after your approval.
