Two Steps to Clear Amazon Video Watch History

By FonePaw | Oct 19 , 2018

You may share an Amazon Prime account with family and friends. So your TV or movie records viewed on Prime Video will be recorded in the same account. If you don't want others to know what you're watching, you can delete the Amazon Prime video history by following steps.


Delete Amazon Prime Recently Watched

You can delete your Amazon Prime watch history so that others don't know what you watched recently. You can remove items, or clear your recent history.


Delete Amazon Prime Video History on Website
Step 1: Log in to Prime Video website.
Step 2: At the top right corner of the screen, you can see an "Account" icon. Click on it.
Step 3: Then click "Account & Settings" option.
Step 4: Find the "Watch History" tab > “View Watch History”, which contains all videos have been watched on the account.

Step 5: Click on "Remove" icon beside the video you want to remove to remove from your Prime Watch History immediately. You cannot remove all items at once from "Watch History", so you have to do it one by one.

Also, apart from Watch History, you should be careful about Browsing History, which records the videos you have clicked but haven’t viewed. You can also turn off your Browsing History in Your Browsing History. It’s easy to do so. Just go to click “Turn off browsing history.”

Delete Amazon Prime Video History on Prime Video App (Android/iPhone)
You can’t see and remove watch history on the Prime Video app for Android/iPhone. So to clear Amazon instant video, you may do it by signing in to the website. Or you use “clear video search history” on the app. However, by doing so, you will lose all Amazon video history. To do that, follow the below steps:

Step 1: Open Prime Video app.
Step 2: Tap Hamburger icon (three vertical lines) > Settings.
Step 3: Tap "Clear Video Search History" option. Tap on it. Since then, the video search history is successfully cleared.

Note: Prime Video app and Amazon Fire TV Stick will save your Prime video search history, while Prime Video website won’t save that history.


Clear Amazon Prime Video Recommendations

Amazon not only has video watch history but recommends similar videos based on your video viewing history. In the main page, you can see the “Watch Next”, which provides TV and movies recommendations based on your video watch history. So you also need to delete them at Watch Next TV and Movies. Here is how you can do it:

Step 1: Navigate to “Watch Next TV and Movies” section. And click on the blue “Edit” link above.
Step 2: A large "X" symbol appears in the center of each video. To remove video recommendations, click the “X” on the video. You can delete some videos or all. After clicking, the show will disappear in time.
Step 3: If you are done with removing, click “Done”.

To conclude, to completely remove all your Amazon videos history, remember to delete records from Watch History, Browsing History and Watch Next recommendations.

For me, "Watch History" does not delete! It says the shows have been deleted, but refreshing the browser brings everything back again. FRUSTRATING. I just want to reset shows I've watched so we can start them again and not have to remember which episode I'm on because they are all marked complete.
