  2. You will need to do it individually.
  3. Users won’t see any batch delete.
  4. So here the statement “The older, the better” doesn’t apply.
  5. When you have an account for years, then it will be time-consuming to delete everything.
  6. Now after logging in to the account, see leading right-hand edge of the display and drag the avatar logo downwards.
  7. Now, select at the bottom, Account.
  8. Users will get to the account settings by now.
  9. Go to the bottom till you are in My Profile section.
  10. Tap on viewing activity now.
  11. It will take you to list of whatever you have watched.
  12. You will be presented with two screens.

Screens will show whatever you have viewed and what has been rated by you.

 Maybe you are getting something in the recommendation not because you have observed something but because you have measured it.

  1. Just delete the pieces of stuff from rating section.
  2. Change the rating of the thumb.
  3. The screen will get clear up from the misconceptions that Netflix thinks you would like to watch.
  4. Tap on a Watching tab for deleting a specific show.
