Netflix: How to delete your ‘Continue Watching’ list

The ‘Continue Watching’ feature on Netflix allows you to access documentaries, TV shows, and movies you have not finished watching. But with time, the list can have titles that only clutter your account’s interface.

The good news is that you can remove titles you recently watched on Netflix. That way, you will not have to access the content you do not plan to revisit.

But how do you delete your ‘Continue Watching’ list on Netflix? It depends on your device. Besides, you can only delete the titles if you have logged in to your account.

If you use a Smart TV, for example, you can access the feature by going to the details page of a TV show or film.

On the other hand,  if you use a computer, you will get the list from the ‘Continue Watching’ row. You also have the option to hide watching history instead of deleting the titles altogether.
