Netflix and Amazon Prime Video are two of the leading on-demand movie and TV show streaming services. Both of these offer thousands of titles spread across different categories including their respective original content. While they offer different features to improve your viewing experience, one of the most commonly used feature is 'Continue Watching'. As the name suggests, this feature lets you resume a movie/TV show from the point where you left right when you log-in to your account and that too regardless of the device.
It saves you from the hassle of manually looking for that particular TV show/movie but there is a minor issue with the feature. It is that if there are other people with you while you open the app, it will allow them to know what you have been watching which is something you might not want all the time. In such situations, you would want to clear 'Continue Watching' on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. This is exactly what we will explain how to do. So without any further ado, let's get started.

Step 2: Click on your profile icon in the top right corner and choose Account from the list of options.
Step 3: Scroll down to My Account section on the account settings page and choose Viewing Activity.
Step 4: From the list of your viewing activity, click the cross icon next to the TV show/movie you want to remove from Continue Watching. It will ask for confirmation which you need to confirm by clicking the Remove Series option.
