Normally, we see some series or movies on Netflix that we do not want others to see, especially if we have friends and/or family members who have access to our account or home gadgets. So doing a good cleaning of our account’s history is the key to avoid it.
So, if you’d like to stop stressing out about someone seeing it, you have to pay attention to the following steps that we explain in detail in this article so you can learn how to erase your Netflix history easily.
To begin clearing your history, you have to log in to the user profile you want to modify but do so from your computer since there is no option to delete series on mobile. Therefore, enter the Netflix website from the browser of your computer or tablet and log in to the account in which you will edit the content.
When you are inside, you must select the icon of your user profile that will appear at the top right of your screen and click on the Your account option. When you click that link, a new tab will appear with the section about your Profile.
The “My Profile section” allows you to configure things like Language, Playback, Appearance of the subtitles, and other options. Here, you will find the Viewing Activity option in the lower right part; click on it to get to delete the content you want from the account.
Upon entering this option, the screen that will open will be an ordered list of series, films, and documentaries you have seen; the order will be from the most recent to the oldest. Notice that next to each title, on the right side, together with the option to Report a problem, the option to remove is represented by a cross.
Click on the X of the title you want to edit to delete it. This allows for deleting one by one the titles that you do not want anyone to see, or you can clean the entire history.
When you click on the option to delete the title, marked by an X, you have the option of erasing either the series or movie itself or the number of times it has been viewed, giving the option to remove the series or movie to remove it from your history completely.
You will then see a notice informing you that the title you have erased will be removed from your viewing activity on all your devices in 24 hours. So, for this film or series to be fully erased from all the devices you use, you will have to wait until one day.

In this way, Netflix will no longer suggest films, series, or documentaries related to the titles you just deleted from your account history, and they won’t show up on your Recently seen or Continue watching lists.
One method to stop others from seeing some things you have recently viewed is to edit the recently viewed list from the Manage Profiles function so that it is separated from the lists that others have in this same account.
