Nothing personal, but we all have been to one stage trying new tastes on Netflix and end up watching something worst, Netflix’s viewing history is the witness of all the titles you’ve watched to date. You don’t want to show your friends or cousins that you’ve wasted a quite amount of time watching “Chasing Cameron”, well no offense to the show, but everyone has different tastes, some people like to watch weird anime, some are freaks for documentaries while major Netflix users are busy watching titles suggested by their friends or colleagues, I’m one of them!
For me this is the reason why I don’t want to show my watched history on Netflix with my friend, as I’ve shared my account, in that case, my first action would be to remove upsetting watched history. Besides, there’s one more case where I’ve removed deleted the videos from Netflix history, like when I don’t like a show and stop watching it, but you know it still stays in your watch list, in that case deleting Netflix watch list is helpful.
