How to Clear PayPal Activity Log

Though PayPal users could previously delete their activity history, the feature is no longer available. For a time, PayPal users could archive their activity instead, but in mid-2014, the site removed this feature as well. Though the new design for PayPal does not have the archive function, as of publication, PayPal permits users to switch to using the Classic Site, which has the appearance of the site before its design updates. In this interface, users are still able to archive activity.
