A friend recently referred to some item on my Amazon Wish List when we were chatting, and I was horrified! I had no idea that anyone else could see what I had added to this shopping list. Is there some way to ensure that no one can see the items on my Amazon Wish List?
In any case it is true by default your Amazon wish list is public. You can make it not be public but you have to take a step to do it.
Logon to Amazon.com and into your account and hover your mouse over the accounts and lists item under your lists.
Select your wish list. Amazon displays your wish list and most likely you'll find that it includes the word "public" next to the name of the list . If it says "private" you're all set you've already done this or somehow by magic yours was set to private.
To change that, click the edit this list link and change the privacy option to private. You can also make it shared so that anyone who has the U.R.L. to your wishlist can see it. but you'd have to send that to them.
Once you're done, click Save changes and you're all set. Remember your wish list is public. All someone has to know is your name or your email address and they can see it unless you make the effort to change it to be private or shared.
