GCash is an online financial service that allows people to pay and receive money online from friends, family, business associates, and more using a secure internet account. It is a Philippine mobile wallet, mobile payment, and branchless banking service.
GCash records every last transaction you make on the platform. They make this transaction history available so you can review your payment anytime you want.
If you’ve got a GCash account you know that you can view all of your transaction histories on demand by clicking the clock icon in the bottom-right corner and opening the Activity tab. If you navigate further you’ll also find out that there is no way to delete this history. When you click on a payment option it simply shows payment details and says if it’s pending or completed.
How do you delete transaction history in GCash?
Due to security purposes, the GCash transaction history cannot be deleted and will remain on your GCash account for you to access. If you still want to delete GCash transaction history, the only way to delete it is to delete your GCash account permanently.
That being said, it means that deleting your GCash transaction history is not possible, you can’t completely remove your payment activities (only move them to archives), especially since the government made a financial policy that regulates how monetary transactions are recorded and kept. The Archive button helps you streamline the “My Recent Activity” section and keep your transactions for quick reference. You’ll also find an option to download your history.
If you don’t even want to see your GCash transactions history in which case I would suggest you delete your whole account and create a new one as there’s no need to make them private because they already are, but before you start the process it’s important that you download your transaction report.
