You can easily remove an item from recently watched series or movies on Netflix. Or even the entire viewing history. But how to proceed? This is not necessarily obvious for new users or for those who have never done it. Hence the usefulness of this little tutorial.

Your Netflix viewing history is useful in many ways. The platform uses it in particular to suggest films and series based on your tastes and habits. It's also a great way to easily find watched content that you can't remember the name of.



Still, some users don't want to be inundated with recommendations from the Red N algorithm. Others share their account with relatives and do not want to keep track of a viewing history that is not theirs. To erase all traces (or only part of the content viewed), follow the guide!

How to clear history on Netflix?

As we said above, the Netflix history will accentuate the ergonomics of the service by offering you content modeled on your tastes. In doing so, it would be better to delete some of the recently viewed content in case you have reason to do so rather than erasing the entire history. Before we start, let's note that it is not possible to delete the history from the Netflix application. To do it :

  • Sign into your account Netflix from a web browser
  • At the top right, click your profile icon and select Account.

  • Scroll down the page. In the section Profiles and Parental Controls, select the profile where you want to clean.
  • Then click Show in category History.
  • You can hide only specific content by clicking on the circled bar or decide to hide all.

Netflix: history management by profile
