Netflix's "Recently Watched" list is a convenient way to re-watch a show or pick up where you left off later.

But there may be times when you don't want certain movies or TV shows appearing on this list. Good news! You can remove them. Here's how.

Step 1

Using a web browser, sign into Netflix. (Presently, you can't delete recently watched titles via the Netflix app.) If your account has multiple users, select your user name.

Hover the cursor over your name in the upper-right corner. In the drop-down box, select "Your Account."
