How to Delete Recently Viewed Items on eBay

eBay is an online marketplace that allows users from around the world to browse auctions and fixed-price listings. To help users find items that they have viewed previously, eBay displays recently viewed items and a list of recent search terms as users peruse the site. While there's no setting to turn off the history of recently viewed items, it is possible to delete both the recently viewed item list and the search term history from the main eBay home page.

Sign in to your eBay account by navigating to and clicking the "Sign In" link at the top of the page. Once logged in, you will be returned to the eBay home page.

Scroll down the page to view the boxes containing your recently viewed items, recent search terms and eBay's recommendations based upon your recent views.

Locate the "Clear All" link under the box containing your most recently viewed item. Click this link. The page will refresh and the box containing your recently viewed items will be gone.

Locate the "Clear Searches" link on the same page if you want to delete your recent search activity as well. Click the link and wait while the page reloads and removes your search history.
