How to Delete Titles from “Continue Watching” on Netflix

Submit

The "Continue watching" feature on Netflix is really helpful. If you stopped watching a movie or episode right in the middle, you can come back to it later and pick up where you left off. However, the same feature can be very annoying too. The good thing is that you can easily delete the "continue watching" section on Netflix in just a few simple steps.

Why remove titles from "Continue Watching" on Netflix?

So, why would you need to remove titles from continue watching? Maybe you are using a friend’s account, and you don’t want them to view what you watched. Perhaps you started a show, but you didn’t like it, and now you want Netflix to stop recommending it. There could also be the case that you watched a movie and stopped at the end credits, but Netflix is still showing it in the continue watching list. Whatever the reason may be, removing titles is very simple.
