That said, everything is recorded to improve the user experience on Facebook. Thankfully, you are still allowed to delete the Facebook Watch History permanently from your account. Apparently, your Facebook watched activities are limited to your account; no one case see what the videos you have watched to date are, but if in case if you want to delete the watched videos from Facebook, continue to read this full guide step-by-step.
