How to Clear Watched Videos History on Facebook

It comes as no surprise that Facebook keeps track of nearly everything you do on their platform. Posts you like, comments you make, and the types of videos you watch are (very) small examples of the kinds of data Facebook collects.

Facebook uses activity data to, partially, improve the user experience. How it does this is beyond the scope of this article but, broadly, it uses this data to show you content more relevant to your interests.

Some of this data can be seen in Facebook’s own activity log; a tool where you can review and manage your Facebook activity. One of the many things that the activity log tracks is the videos you watch on Facebook. While the activity log is only visible to you, there might be some videos you’d rather forget.

Thankfully, Facebook allows you to delete certain things from your activity log. In this article, we’ll show you how to clear watched videos in the Facebook activity log on both desktop and mobile.

How to Clear Watched Videos History on Facebook

You can clear watched videos history on Facebook in the Videos you’ve watched section of your Activity Log. You can clear all watched videos at once if you’re using the Facebook website on a PC, but this feature is not yet available for mobile.

Below, we’ll show you step-by-step instructions on how on your Android, iPhone, or PC:


  1. Open the Facebook mobile app and sign into your account.
  2. Tap your Profile picture/3 bars in the upper right corner, scroll to the bottom, and tap Settings & Privacy > Settings.

  3. On the following screen, tap Profile Settings and then scroll down and select Activity Log under Your Facebook Information.

    Unfortunately, at the time of writing, there does not appear to be a way to clear all watched Facebook videos at once on mobile. If you have access to a desktop computer though, continue to the section below to find out how on a PC.


  1. Open in your web browser and sign into your account.
  2. Click your Profile picture in the upper right corner of Facebook and select Settings & Privacy > Activity Log.
