Cash App is a payment gateway for domestic and international money transfers and digital payments. It’s a quick and easy solution to receiving payments worldwide. Cash App records every last Payment you make on the platform.
They make this Payment history available so you can review and check your payment status anytime you want.
No doubt if you already have a Cash App account you know that you can check all of your payment 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 to check Cash App payment status
The most recent activity will appear in the “Recent activity” section on the Summary page.
You can check the status of all Cash App payments in your account history. Your Payment history includes the date, Payment type, name, status, and the amounts associated with each Payment. To see your payment or Payments status, here’s how to check the status of a payment:

That said, it means that deleting your Cash App payment history is not possible, you can’t completely remove your payment activities (only move it to archives), especially since the government made a financial policy that regulates how monetary Payments are recorded and kept.
The Archive button helps you streamline the “My Recent Activity” section and keep your Payments for quick reference. You’ll also find an option to download your history.
Where you don’t even want to see your Cash App payments 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 Payment report.
