What are Shadow Achievements?
Shadow achievements are secret achievements that do not give any milk or boost to cps and are purely just for show. These are regarded as unfair or difficult to obtain achievements.

They will always show up at the bottom of the achievement list in the stats page

and at the total achievements gained at the top of the achievement section.
