If you buy items through Amazon, writing reviews can not only help other people make informed purchases, but it can also help you keep track of the things that do and don’t work for you.

Once you publish an Amazon review, you can go back in and make changes if, for example, you find that the long-term experience of owning an item is different than the first impression. You can also hide reviews from view if you decide you don’t want other people to see it for any reason.

Here’s what you need to know about writing and editing reviews on the Amazon website and mobile app.
