How To: Remove Embarrassing or Irrelevant Titles from Your Hulu Watch History

Remove Embarrassing or Irrelevant Titles from Your Hulu Watch History

If you're someone who shares your Hulu account with friends and family, let me be first to acknowledge you as a hero. That being said, heroes have messy profiles — your account quickly reflects the viewing habits of your shared users, making it difficult to keep your watch history yours. That changes now, with new tools from Hulu.

If you're seeing titles you didn't watch on your profile, or if you don't want others knowing what titles you watch, Hulu's new "Remove" function is right up your alley. It quickly and easily allows you to delete shows and movies from your watch history, and, best of all, it doesn't judge.

Unfortunately, this feature is not live as of this article. However, Hulu did provide a screenshot of what users can expect from the feature in an announcement May 17. It seems the "Remove" button will appear next to any title you've previously viewed. Once tapped, the movie or show leaves you watch history and appears as any other title would should you or any shared users come across it in the wild.

We'll stay on top of this new feature and update this article when it goes live. If you happen to be someone who wants to remove titles from their watch history, for whatever reason, keep an eye on your Hulu app and its updates as well.
