Thankfully, Netflix lets you do that now. Here’s how to delete your Netflix watch history.
Delete Your Netflix Watch History
Step 1: First, log in to your Netflix account using any browser. As viewing history is specific to profiles, make sure to choose the right profile if there are multiple users.
Step 2: Next, click on the profile icon in the right corner and select the Your Account from drop down menu.
Step 3: Now, scroll down to the Profile & Parental Controls section, and click on the “View” button next to Viewing Activity.
It will take open a page having everything you’ve watched until now.
Step 4: To the right of each show or movie will be a cancel-sign, next to ‘Report a problem’. Hover over the cancel symbol and you’ll see “Hide from viewing history.”
Click on this icon and it will remove the mentioned show or movie from your history. Please note that it may take up to 24 hrs for the history to get deleted.
Note: For TV shows, each episode will be listed separately. Clicking the cancel icon on a single episode will remove only that specific title. However, you will also receive a pop-up asking if you want to remove the entire show, and just a quick will do that.
Also, if you want to delete your entire viewing history in at once, just scroll to the bottom of the list and click Hide All, choose Yes, Hide All My Viewing Activity pop-up. Here you go, after 24 hours, your watch history will be removed.
