How to remove unnecessary customer account links in Magento 2?

Sep 10th, 2018 3 min to read

Having the default behaviour, Magento provides and displays a long list of links on the customer account page. Sometimes we need to customize this default links inclusion as not all links are needed. Often it’s needed to remove a couple of links, for example, My Product Reviews or Billing Agreements.

Below is a pile of default links on customer account screen:

  • Account Dashboard
  • Account Information
  • Address Book
  • My Downloadable Products
  • My Orders
  • Newsletter Subscriptions
  • Stored Payment Methods
  • My Product Reviews
  • Billing Agreements
  • My Wish List

In order to remove customer links we from Aureate Labs suggesting some quick steps to get rid of unnecessary links:

  • Step 1: Create a custom extension or theme and override customer layout file
  • Step 2: Use a tag to remove any extra link from my account
  • Step 3: Clear cache and check the My Account page

Step 1: Create a custom extension or theme and override customer layout file

Create an extension and override the layout XML file

Just need to use a tag to remove extra links from my account.

<page xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd">
   <!-- Remove unwanted account navigation links -->
   <!-- Put this file in: app/design/frontend/[Namespace]/[Theme]/Magento_Customer/layout/customer_account.xml -->
   <!-- Store credit -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-customer-balance-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Downloadable product link -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-downloadable-products-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Subscription link -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-newsletter-subscriptions-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Billing agreement link -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-billing-agreements-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Product review link -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-product-reviews-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- My credit card link -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-my-credit-cards-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Account link -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-account-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Account edit link -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-account-edit-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Address link -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-address-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Orders link -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-orders-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Wish list link -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-wish-list-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Gift card link -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-gift-card-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Order by SKU -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-checkout-sku-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Gift registry -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-giftregistry-link" remove="true"/>
   <!-- Reward points -->
   <referenceBlock name="customer-account-navigation-reward-link" remove="true"/>

Step 3: Clear cache and check the My Account page

The link which we have removed using tag remove=”true” will no longer be displayed on your “my account page”.

This is all to remove unwanted links from customer account navigation. Though it’s a quite simple practice to follow if you stuck anywhere in between reach us freely by leaving the comment below. We’ll be glad to entertain your queries.
