Discover the effective way to delete your Facebook Watch History forever. We explain how in our step by step guide!

In Short

  • Check your Facebook account activity by logging on to your iPhone, Android, or desktop (Mac/PC). Go to Profile > Settings > Settings & Privacy > Activity Log…
  • Delete selected or all your or selected Facebook history from Videos you’ve watched, Search history Groups you’ve searched, Active sessions, and more.

Until now, you may have heard that Facebook stores all of your activities and data like which posts you’ve liked, what videos you’ve watched and liked, how long your friend list is, and more. That said, everything is recorded to improve the user experience on Facebook. You can still permanently delete the Facebook Watch History from your account. Apparently, your Facebook watched activities are limited to your account; no one can see the videos you have watched to date, but if you want to delete the watched videos from Facebook, continue to read this full step-by-step guide.

The procedure to delete the Facebook Watch History is tedious. You have to delete the videos one by one; as far as we know, there is no option to delete the watched videos simultaneously. However, it can be done from the Facebook App and the Facebook Web Interface; you only need an internet connection. Let’s get into the tutorial.
