How to Turn Off Amazon App Recommendations



In this quick guide we’ll explain how to turn off Amazon app recommendations, notifications and deals from popping up on your phone. If you’re like me you use Amazon a lot, but that also means you’re constantly getting notifications or “here’s a great deal we picked for you” from Amazon.

And while Amazon suggestions are helpful at times and the deals can give you a heads up on a price drop, they’re often something random you clicked on and not necessarily a product you actually want. Basically, here’s how to customize and manage the Amazon app notifications.

Stop these annoying notifications

How to Disable Amazon App Suggestions & Notifications

  1. Open the Amazon app on your phone or tablet
  2. Sign in then tap the 3-lines menu button near the top left
  3. Scroll down and select Settings then click on Notifications
  4. Uncheck “Your Recommendations” or any other notification from the list

From here you have access to just about any and all notifications from the Android app. And while we recommend keeping notifications on for products that ship, or important account alerts, everything else is optional and a personal preference.

Personally, I hate the “here’s a deal for you” notifications I get every few days for something I’ll never buy. Amazon will send you a pop-up and recommend a product based on your shopping activity. Go ahead and uncheck that box, uncheck the watched deals, or even scroll down and turn off Amazon Community notifications. That way you won’t get updates on questions, reviews, or followers from the online Amazon community.

Additionally, users can go to the Amazon website on a desktop, sign-in, and further refine some of the features and notifications for their specific account.

    Just found out if youre using Amazon Smile and try this you will have to disable Smile and you will no longer be able to do donations. :-(

    Garbage. Still being offered as a “solution” when the app has changed in the ensuing 4 YEARS since the page was created.

    for those that are having issue finding this in the new app…

    Go to the 3 lines that look like an = at the bottom right hand corner

    Now scroll alllll the way down without going into anything, they moved the “settings” button all the way down here. Notification settings are in there now.

    it took me like a week to find out you had to scroll down here instead of going into account(the middle button that looks like a person) where these settings should be.

    obviously they did this on purpose so its hard to turn them off.
