How to Disable Amazon Recommendations

The Amazon website makes purchase recommendations to you that are based upon items you have searched for, browsed or even those that you already own. The purpose of the recommendations is to draw your attention to other items, similar to your interests, that might otherwise go unnoticed. These recommendations are linked to your log in information. There is no permanent way to opt out of the recommendation database, but you may disable the recommendations temporarily.

Navigate to the home page.

Click on the link that says "Not (your name)?" If you are not logged in, the link will not be visible and you will receive the message "Sign in to get personalised recommendations" on the home screen.

Delete the email address and password from the Sign In screen if your browser remembers them. Leave the text boxes blank.

Click the home page link to return to the main page. No recommendations will be provided until you log in again.
