On ‘Viewing Activity’ you can do four things:

  • View our recent viewing history.
  • Sort them by ratings or by last watched.
  • You can see your recent account access,
  • And delete items from the viewing history.

To do the latter, click on the X of the title you want to delete, this way, you can delete a show/movie from Netflix history individually. If you want to erase items by series, that’s also possible, after deleting one episode, it will ask you if you want to remove the whole series from your history.
