In an age of social media, some may wonder if it’s safe to share your wish list on Amazon with friends and family. Some people may see it as a privacy risk because you are revealing your home address in the process. However, there are no risks involved in sharing your Amazon wishlist with others. If you use the Amazon Wishlist feature, you probably understand that this is a virtual bucket list where you can store all the things you want to get for the holiday season or for any other occasion. It enables friends and family members to conveniently find out what gifts you’d like to receive and keep track of these items throughout the year. This article will explain why sharing an Amazon Wishlist with others won’t put your address at risk. Perhaps reading this will also help ease any concerns you have about doing so.
Can People See Your Address On Amazon Wishlist?
Yes, if you choose to make your wishlist public, people will be able to see your address. If you want to keep your wishlist private, you can change the settings so that only people with the link can see it.
What Is An Amazon Wishlist?
- It is a virtual bucket list where you can store all the things you want to get for the holiday season or for any other occasion.
- It enables friends and family members to conveniently find out what gifts you’d like to receive and keep track of these items throughout the year.
- It also allows you to save your wish list in one place so it is easier to manage and share with others, as well as download your wish list at any time during the year.
- You can even share it with friends, family members, and colleagues on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram if that’s how you prefer to communicate with them.
- When you share your wish list on Amazon, it does not reveal any personal information about yourself or your address in any way, shape, or form (other than what’s already available publicly).
- You are free to put anything on your wish list: books, electronics, household goods, toys for kids and pets; clothes, kitchenware or accessories of any kind; holiday gifts; even food items if that’s how you prefer to shop! In short: anything that interests you is up for grabs! And if there are no specific items listed on your Amazon Wishlist yet (or if there are but they aren’t available yet), it would be perfectly fine for people who know about this feature to browse through your Amazon Wishlist without revealing your home address.

Why You Should Share Your Wishlist With Others
Ask any parent who has shared their wish list with family and friends. They will tell you that it’s safe to do so. The Amazon Wishlist feature is one of the many ways you can share your excitement for the upcoming holiday season with others. Your wish list is not a personal document, but rather a virtual bucket list where you can store all the things you want to receive at some point in time.
It Helps Others
Have you ever thought about how much time it takes for someone to find out what gifts they should buy for someone? If you have shared a wish list with friends and family, they can see it right away on your Amazon account and get an idea of what you would like them to get as gifts or if they should go ahead and purchase some items on their own. This saves both parties time and effort by eliminating the need to physically look up at stores, read blogs, or flip through magazines while searching for ideas on what items to get someone as gifts this holiday season.
It Gives You Some Holiday Fun
If your family members are not tech-savvy like yourself, sharing your Amazon wishlist might be challenging because they may not know where to look or how it works themselves. However, sharing your Wishlist with them gives them an opportunity to learn about new technologies such as Amazon Alexa or Browsers that enable them to search for specific items using voice commands, browse products using images instead of text, and even shop on their own using the Amazon app.
It Helps You Save Money
If you are shopping for gifts this holiday season, you may want to consider adding a few items to your Wishlist so you don’t have to purchase them later on. This way, you can save money by not having to pay for items that will end up being forgotten about in a closet or under the tree on Christmas morning.
It Helps You Save Time
With all the hustle and bustle of shopping for gifts, it’s difficult to find time during peak holiday season shopping hours to go out and look for certain items. If you have shared your Wishlist with friends and family members, they can shop online at their convenience while you can do other things such as clean the house or spend time with your family members instead of searching around stores looking for gift ideas each day this season.
Amazon Wishlist Is Only For Shoppers
Amazon Wishlist Is Not For Public View
The purpose of Amazon Wishlist is to make it easier for friends and family members to find things you want or need. You can save items you’d like to purchase in your wish list and share that with others. However, your Amazon Wishlist is not public. There are no other people who can see what you’ve put on your wish list, and they cannot access any of the items you’ve saved there. Your wish list is only accessible to yourself and anyone who has the link that was sent to them via email. This is why sharing an Amazon Wishlist with others will not put your home address at risk.
Only The People Who Sent You The Link Can Access Your Wish List
In addition, it’s important to note that only the people who have sent you the link can access your wish list. This means if someone else tries to get on your account, they will be asked for permission before being able to view your Amazon wish list items in their own account like any other user would be allowed to do so when they login to their own account or contact customer service for assistance in adding an item to their own Amazon wish list or sending a gift card.
You Can Unsubscribe From Everyone Who Has Access To Your Wish List Link
You can easily unsubscribe from everyone who has access to the link that was sent to them via email by clicking on “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of each email that was sent to you.
The Wishlist Link Is Secure
The Amazon Wishlist feature is not only for getting items for yourself; it’s also for sending gifts to others without having to physically mail them. Because of this, the link that is sent to friends and family members via email is secured with a password and cannot be accessed by anyone else but you and the person who has sent you that link via email. This means if someone else tries to access your Amazon Wishlist, they will be asked for permission before being able to view it.
The Items In Your Amazon Wish List Are Not Accessed By Anyone Else
The items in your Amazon wish list are not accessible by anyone else unless you share them with them or they have been added directly into their own account as a gift or item they purchased themselves through their own account or contact customer service for assistance in adding an item to their own Amazon wish list or sending a gift card. If someone attempts to add an item to their own wish list, they will receive an error message stating there is already an item on file with that name in their account and any attempt would result in an error message.
Finally, we can conclude that you can feel safe sharing your Amazon Wishlist with others. You can make it public, and it won’t reveal any personal information about you. Some people may be concerned that others can see their address from the wishlist, but that’s not true. People can only see the items on your list, not the address listed next to them. They can’t even see the city you live in because Amazon doesn’t reveal this information. In short, you don’t have anything to worry about when sharing your Amazon Wishlist with others.
