Talking about family, Amazon allows users to sync one account across multiple devices. However, the content being watched by one family member might not be good for others to watch.
Otherwise, you have to share your device with someone and you don't want them to know what you're watching. In that scenario, you should clear the Watch Next list on Amazon Prime Video and this is how you do it.
By performing this quick clean, you can get rid of all your viewing history. This will also hide any and all content that you have been searching for. While Netflix has a dedicated setting to clear it, Amazon Prime Video has two little workarounds to accomplish this task.
1. Clearing the Watch Next List
Amazon Prime Video keeps a tab of what you have been watching and keeps it all on the Watch Next list. Along with your most recently viewed content, it also keeps suggesting you new content based on your preferences. To clear it out follow these following steps.
Note: You can only clear this using a computer while being logged on to Amazon Prime Video through a web browser.
Step 1: Login to your Amazon Prime Video account. Here you will see the Watch Next list. Tap on the Edit button on the upper-right side of this list.
Step 2: Once you've pressed the Edit button, icons to remove the content of that list, denoted by circular cross signs will appear on each and every show or movie. Delete all the content by tapping on these icons.
Step 3: After you've finished clearing that list, hit the Done button on the upper-right side of this list.
Sometimes, if you have shows or movies saved on your Watchlist, that also shows up on Watch Next. Below are the steps to remove that as well.
Clearing Your Watchlist
While having a watchlist is good, it will reflect your preference for TV shows and movies. If you want to avoid telling people about it, follow the steps below to clear your Watchlist.
Step 1: Go to the Menu located on the top right-side of the page. Tap on it and from the given options select Your Watchlist.
Step 2: It will now show the list of TV shows and movies that you have added to your Watchlist. To delete them, tap on the remove button located at the bottom of each one of them.
Step 3: Once you're done, refresh your Amazon Prime Video page and it will not show the Watch Next list anymore.

A Healthy Practice
If you have an exclusive Amazon Prime Video account, you really need not worry about anything. However, many users share their account with friends and family and for them clearing their Watch Next list is a healthy practice.
It takes just a couple of seconds and it can save you from a lot of trouble or explanations.
