Deleting Your Hulu Watch History: A Step-By-Step Guide

Hey there! Have you ever watched something embarrassing on Hulu that you don’t want others to see in your watch history? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Luckily, Hulu makes it easy to delete items from your watch history so you can keep your guilty pleasures private.

In this handy guide, we’ll walk through the quick and easy steps to remove shows and movies from your Hulu watch history using different devices. Let’s get started!

On Your Smart TV or Streaming Device

Deleting your watch history right from your TV is a cinch. Just follow these simple actions:

  • Navigate to the Details Page for the show or movie you want to delete. You can usually access this by highlighting the title and clicking the Menu or Info button on your remote.
  • Select the Manage Movie or Manage Series option.
  • Choose Remove from Watch History when it pops up.
  • Confirm your choice when prompted.

And that’s it! That title is now gone from your prying-eyes-protected watch history.

Tip: You’ll only see the Manage option for titles that are already in your watch history.

On Your Computer

Need to prune your watch history on your laptop or desktop? Here’s the drill:

  • Go to the Hulu website and log into your account.
  • Click on Keep Watching and find the show or movie you want to delete.
  • Hover over the title’s thumbnail image and click the X icon that appears.
  • Select Done to confirm.

It’s vanished! Wasn’t that easy?

Pro Tip: If you accidentally delete something, quickly choose the Undo option before hitting Done.

On Your Smartphone

You can also make watch history disappear right from your phone. Just:

  • Launch the Hulu app and log in.
  • Go to either “Keep Watching” or “All Watch History.”
  • Tap the three dot menu on the title you want to remove.
  • Select Remove from Watch History from the options.
  • Confirm your choice.

Bye bye, questionable movie pick! It’ll be our little secret.

Other Useful Tips

Here are a few other Hulu watch history tricks worth knowing:

  • To wipe your entire watch history clean (for all profiles too), go to Privacy and Settings > California Privacy Rights > Manage Activity in your account and choose Clear All Watch History.
  • If titles keep reappearing in Continue Watching after you delete them, try stopping your show ~30 seconds before the end and then removing it from your watch history. This usually prevents it from popping back up!
  • Remember, you can always access Hulu’s Help Center for troubleshooting if you get stuck.

So now there’s no reason to have awkward “Why were you watching that?” conversations around the family TV. Just use this guide to cleanly erase any embarrassing shows from your Hulu watch history instead!
