Netflix won’t ever let you forget that one time you accidentally started watching Peppa Pig. Every time you log in, the streaming service suggests you “Continue Watching” all those shows you stopped watching after a few seconds.
For many users, the “Continue Watching” row is a graveyard of all the shows and films they don’t want to finish. But Netflix has now started letting mobile users clean up this list.
“You can remove TV shows or movies from the Continue Watching row with the latest version of the Netflix app on Android and iOS devices,” Netflix says on its help page.
If you see a show you don’t want to keep watching in the Netflix app, you can now tap menu on the TV show or movie you want to remove and select remove from row.
Alternatively, you can also log into your Netflix account in a browser, go to your user profile’s viewing history in the account settings and start deleting items that you’ve started watching.
Netflix then tells you this film or show “will no longer be used to make recommendations to you, unless you watch it again.” – dpa
