How to Get Rid of Your Recent Disney+ Shows and Movies List

Hey there! I’m here to show you how you can easily remove that list of movies and shows you’ve been recently watching on Disney+. We all have our guilty pleasures, and sometimes we just don’t want others to know what we’ve been enjoying on our screens. No worries, I’ve got your back!

Now, pay close attention, because I’m about to guide you through the process step by step. Ready? Let’s do this!

First off, you’ll need to head to the Disney+ website. Go ahead and log in to your account using your credentials. Once you’re in, locate the Browse section at the top of the page. See it? Good.

Next, move your cursor over to the Profile icon on the right-hand side of the screen. It’s usually represented by a little circle with an image in it. Give it a click, and a drop-down menu will appear. Look for the Account option and select it. Great job so far!

Now, you should find yourself on the Account page. This is where all the magic happens. Keep scrolling down until you reach the Profile section. Under Profiles, you’ll see your profile name with an Edit button next to it. Click on Edit, and here comes the exciting part!

Within the profile settings, you’ll see those oh-so revealing thumbnails of the shows and movies you’ve recently watched. We don’t want anyone stumbling upon those, do we? Fear not, my friend. Look for the Remove button. Yes, that’s the one! Go ahead and give it a click.

Voila! You’ve successfully cleared your recently watched Disney+ viewing history. Now, nobody will know that you’ve secretly binged on Mickey Mouse cartoons or revisited your childhood with some Disney classics. Your secret is safe with me!

Remember, though, this only removes the titles from your viewing history. It won’t affect your recommendations or suggestions on Disney+. So, go ahead and explore all the amazing content Disney+ has to offer. Have fun and enjoy your magical streaming experience.

That’s all there is to it, my friend. You’re now a pro at scrubbing away your recently watched shows and movies on Disney+. I hope this guide has been helpful to you. Now go, and let the streaming adventures continue!

How to Clear Your Recently Watched Disney+ Viewing History

Disney+ is probably one of the most popular streaming platforms even though it’s relatively new. Since it’s younger than most streaming platforms, there are still a few things that Disney+ doesn’t have. For example, if you want to enhance your viewing experience, you have to go through some steps to clear your recently watched list on the platform.

Can You Clear Your Recently Watched History on Disney+?

You can clear your Netflix watch history from your account settings. Unfortunately, you can’t do the same on Disney+. There’s no option to remove content from your ‘Continue Watching’ list. This can be frustrating, especially if you’ve stopped watching some shows but they still show up in your selection. The good news is that there are a few ways around this problem that can help you get rid of this annoyance.

How to Clear Your Continue Watching History on Disney+

There are a few workarounds that you can try to clear your recently watched history on Disney+. These methods might not give you the exact results you want, but they can make your selection look better.

1. Delete Shows & Movies Individually

  1. Go to your Disney+ account on the web. You’ll see the shows and movies you recently watched under the ‘Continue Watching’ section.
  2. Hover the mouse over any of them. To delete them, click the cross icon on the top-right corner of the thumbnail.

  3. If you want to remove more of them, click ‘View All’ and Disney+ will show you all the incomplete series and movies.

  4. Hover over the one you want to delete, and click the ‘Close’ icon.
  5. The movie or show will be instantly removed from the list.

2. Skip to the End of Your Shows

Another option is to open the shows on your ‘Continue Watching’ list on Disney+ and skip to the end. For movies, you’ll need to skip to the very end. For TV shows, go to the last episode of the series, not just the season.

Disney+ Continue Watching

If you want to remove a show from the carousel, here’s what you can do. Just follow these steps and you’ll be able to clear it out. But remember, if you want to watch the show or movie later, make sure to remember it for next time.

3. Take it off your Watchlist

It’s unfortunate that the watchlist feature may not be available in every region where Disney+ is accessible. However, if it is available in your region, you should be able to find it at the top of the Disney+ main menu.

Uncheck Watchlist Disney Hotstar

If you want to remove a show from your watchlist, follow these steps. First, find the show you want to remove. Then, hover your mouse over the show and click the checkmark icon to remove it. Keep in mind that you may need to refresh the page to see the show disappear. Some users have reported that this method doesn’t always work due to a glitch. If it fails to work, simply try the process again.

4. Create a New Profile

If none of the previous methods work, you can create a new profile, especially if you have a lot of shows to clear. Each profile on your account will have its own recently watched section. Here’s how you can create a new profile.

Disney+ Create Profile Add Button

  1. First, I open Disney+.
  2. Then, I select “Add” on the profile selection screen.
  3. Next, I choose an icon and pick a profile name.
  4. If there are any features I want to turn on, I toggle them on.
  5. And finally, I select “Create Profile”.

With Disney+, you can create up to 7 profiles per account. If your account is full, you can delete the ones you don’t use. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. I open Disney+.
  2. Then, I select “Edit” from the top right corner of the screen.
    Disney+ Edit Button
  3. I choose the profile I want to delete.
  4. Next, I select “Delete” and confirm it.

If I delete a profile, I won’t be able to get back the recently watched list and preferred shows from that account. In case I’m sharing my Disney+ account with friends and they’re messing up my recently watched section, here’s how I can log out of Disney+ from all devices.

Time to Declutter Your Disney+ Feed

Over time, my Disney+ feed will get filled with recommended shows and unfinished titles, making it harder to find the ones I want to watch. That’s why it’s important to declutter my feed from time to time. If I want more tips for watching Disney+, here’s how I can download and watch it on my computer.
