YouTube saves a history of all your watched videos in a nice chronological list. But, the problem is, if you have someone living with you that keeps an eye out for stuff that you shouldn’t be watching – such as Nickelback videos – then it’s recommended that you clear your history before they find out and things turn sour all of a sudden. So, without further ado, pick up your phone, tablet or launch your Web browser and learn how to clear YouTube history.
