Let’s say you’re a crypto bro and you want to keep your cryptocurrencies safe. You remembered that cold wallets offer the best security, so you check Amazon for options.

You saw that the Ledger Nano X was a great option, but you were short on cash. In turn, you looked at good alternatives, so you’ve recorded many of them on the orders page.

Archiving your orders lets you keep those choices for later. Once you’ve saved enough money, you could simply return to your archived orders list. This feature is also useful for:

  • Let’s say you’re looking for holiday gifts for your family members. Archiving Amazon orders lets you hide them from other people sharing your Amazon account. This order option allows you to look for gifts without them knowing.
  • If you have an online business, looking up your competitors is necessary. You could archive their items on Amazon in an organized list.
  • Maybe your spouse doesn’t want you spending more on crypto stuff. You may archive your crypto wallet picks, so no one else will see them.

Note that this will only hide your order history from users sharing your Amazon account. Later, I’ll give you more tips on keeping everyone else from seeing your orders.

Other ways to hide your order history

This is a person shopping on Amazon.

Let’s say you want to make sure no one peeks at your orders. In that case, you may want to try these additional steps for hiding orders on Amazon:

  1. Go to Amazon’s website. If you haven’t logged in to your account, do it now.
  2. Go to the Recently Viewed section and select Edit your browsing history.
  3. Look for the item you want to remove. Then, hit its Remove from view button.
  4. You should see the word “Removed” appear above the item, and its section will look greyed out.
  5. Confirm that it worked by refreshing your page. You can do that by clicking the corresponding button on your web browser or simply pressing the F5 on your keyboard. After that, the removed items should not reappear.

If you want to keep your online shopping history private, you should think outside the box. That “box” is Amazon since you can purchase things on many other websites.

This means that you shouldn’t just learn how to archive Amazon orders. Instead, you should learn these other methods of hiding your browsing activity:

  • Using a separate account lets you prevent others from seeing your purchases. It also enables you to avoid the search suggestions that your account provides. This isn’t a practical option, though, as you’ll spend effort on making a new account. The next options are much easier and simpler.
  • You could use your browser’s privacy mode to hide your search history. It’s known as Incognito Mode for Google Chrome, but other browsers have similar features. They open a window that doesn’t record your search queries and browsing histories, while others erase the data once you close the browser.
  • Also, you could try a VPN or virtual private network. It masks your IP address, so it seems like your browser runs in another part of the world. Not only does this hide your search history, but it also enables you to access media only available in that region. Some cryptos like OXT coin provide this service as well.

Note that Incognito mode has limits. For example, it cannot hide your activity from your internet provider and the websites you visited. VPNs could provide that extra layer of privacy.

However, you should be careful before trying a VPN. Make sure it’s from a reputable company, or you may put your computer and its data at risk.
