Step By Step Guide On How To Delete Your Netflix Viewing History

As they say “Netflix keeps a close watch on what you are watching”. In such cases, that is actually a good thing as Netflix can  give recommendations based on the shows that you’ve watched all throughout your entire viewing history. Another good thing about though is that if you’re not done watching the movie or show, there’s an option for you to “Continue Watching” either from the beginning or from where you left off. There’s no longer a need to search for that particular movie or show that you haven’t finished watching.

Since Netflix can save your viewing history, we don’t want our family and friends to know what movies or shows we are watching right? Especially when almost all Netflix users nowadays shares the same account with each member of the family or with a group of friends. At times, we watch movies and shows that we don’t want the world to know and you might find it embarrassing or uncomfortable if they would know about it.
