How to Clear Continue Watching on Amazon Prime Video

When you talk about the best online video streaming services, nothing beats Netflix. However, Amazon with its Prime Video is not trailing far behind. It's not just about the 18,405 movies and 1,981 TV shows that it offers, but, the whole package is definitely a boon for the entire family. 

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.
