So do you ever watch something like 50 Shades of Grey but don’t want your kids or your mom to see it on your watch again list? We have good news for you. Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon all allow you to hide a show or movie you don’t want everyone to know about.


If you want to hide a show or movie on Netflix, using a computer go to My Account | Viewing History. There you can find the title of the movie or show you watched and remove it from your list. Be advised that items aren’t always deleted immediately; it may take 24 hours for your lists to update on all devices according to reports.

Netflix also allows you to create multiple profiles, and you can create a personal profile and protect it with a password.

Go to Account Settings from the top-right corner by clicking Your Account and navigating to Parental Controls. From here you can set your PIN and the age restriction for your content by dragging the cursor. Dragging it to older kids will allow only PG and 7+ content to be watched without a PIN.

Amazon Video

To remove your movies and TV shows from your Amazon history, all you need to do is go to your Account Settings and look for Personalization. Go to Personalized Content | View and Manage Your Browsing History. Here, you have a few options. You can remove only certain items or all items and turn off browsing history, so you never have this issue again.


To remove a show or movie from Hulu, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your account on
  2. Find your viewing history section by hovering over your name at the top-right corner of the screen and clicking History
  3. Locate the video you would like to remove
  4. Click the trash can icon next to the video you want to delete
  5. To clear your entire viewing history, click the Remove all videos button above the Last Viewed column
