How to Delete Recently Viewed Items on eBay

When you're on a shared computer, there are times when it's helpful to remove viewed items from eBay. If you're using eBay to purchase a gift for your spouse or a family member, for example, you can keep others from stumbling onto your plans by deleting viewed items from the eBay site and your eBay app.

Deleting From the eBay Site

On your eBay home page, find your Recently Viewed items box. Click Clear to remove all the items. Even though your recent searches don't show the exact items you've viewed, they may give clues about the items or your plans. To delete searches, find the Recent Searches box and click Clear. To prevent the search box from revealing recent searches, click the search box and select Hide eBay Suggestions.

Deleting From the eBay App

To delete recent items from the Windows 8 eBay app, click the Menu icon and then Settings from the menu bar.

Alternatively, move the cursor to the upper-right corner of the screen to access the Windows Ribbon and then click Settings and App Settings.

From App Settings, select Clear Recent Activity.
