Like a lot of internet based services, Netflix likes to keep tabs on where you have been and what content you view regularly. This helps them to recommend other things that you may be interested in. While this sounds great and indeed a handy feature, it can be a pain in the backside if you view something by accident or just try something different for a change . Before you know it you can find yourself with suggestions that are way off the mark for you and find it difficult to get things back on track. So, how do we remove the offending programs and it's associated suggestions? Just follow these three simple steps!
- Firstly log in to Netflix on your PC, head to the right hand side and click the little red arrow to show the drop down menu. Select "User Account"
- Next Scroll down and head into the "Viewing activity section"
- You will then see a full list of your viewing activity. Here you can scroll through and remove anything that might be causing issues or even hide your Spongebob addiction.
Although it's a quick process to run through the list and remove unwanted items, Netflix do mention that it will take up to 24 hours for items to be removed from your activity on all devices.
