How to Clear or Edit the Continue Watching List in Netflix on Any Device

While the “Continue Watching” list on Netflix can be relatively useful, it can also be particularly bothersome to some Netflix users. Fortunately, there are a few easy ways you can deal with this issue. It’s possible to clear your “Continue Watching” list on Netflix on iOS and Android devices. And not only can you do this on your desktop, but it will only take a couple of quick steps.

How to Clear or Edit the Continue Watching List in Netflix on Any Device

In this guide, we will show you how to clear your “Continue Watching” list on Netflix across various devices. We will also give you some alternatives to this problem, and answer common questions related to this topic.

Previously, the only option was to clear titles from your Netflix Watch History. However, as one of Netflix’s newest features, you also have the option to clear your entire “Continue Watching” list. This is how it’s done:

How To Clear the Continue Watching List from a Desktop PC

  1. Go to Netflix on your desktop browser.
  2. Log into your account and go to your profile.
  3. Navigate to “Account” and then to “My Profile.”
  4. Find “Viewing Activity” on the list of options.
  5. Click on the “X” on the right side of the title to remove it.

Even though you have to remove each title one at a time, Netflix won’t ask you if you’re sure that you want to remove the title from the Viewing Activity, which should speed up the whole process. Once you remove all the titles from your Viewing Activity, your “Continue Watching” list will be empty.

As mentioned before, you have a couple of options at this point. You can either remove a particular show or movie from your “Continue Watching” list, or you can clear the entire list at once.

Keep in mind that you can only delete items from your “Continue Watching” list on a desktop, iPhone, or Android. This feature isn’t possible on a Smart TV or other streaming devices

How To Clear Continue Watching from an iPhone

If you want to remove titles from your “Continue Watching” list on Netflix on your iOS device, do the following:

  1. Go to Netflix.
  2. Choose the right profile and log in.
  3. Go to the “Continue Watching” tab.

  7. Select “Remove” to confirm that you want to remove the title from the “Continue Watching” row.

Another way you can remove a title from the “Continue Watching” list is by also removing it from your activity page. In other words, Netflix will give you the option to “hide” the title from the Viewing Activity page. Here’s how you can do this on an iOS device:

  1. Launch the Netflix app on your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Log into your Netflix profile.
  3. Go to the three horizontal lines in the bottom-right corner of the app.
  4. Continue to “Account.”
  5. Find “Viewing Activity” on the list of options.
  6. Locate the title that you want to hide.
  7. Tap on the “delete” icon (a circle with a slash through it) on the right side of the title.

That’s about it. Now the title won’t appear in your “Continue Watching” list anymore. Keep in mind that it might take Netflix up to 24 hours to hide the title on all of your devices.
