How to Delete Watched Videos on Facebook

Updated on September 13, 2021

Did you know that Facebook keeps a record of every video you watch on its platform? Yes, Facebook is tracking every single video you watch and every search you perform on the blue site.

Fortunately, you don't have to worry about the watch history. You're the only one who can see the past watched videos history on your Facebook account as long as no one else knows your ID and password. But to avoid any embarrassing situation, it may be better to clear your Facebook watch history regularly. Why regularly? because unlike YouTube, Facebook doesn't offer any option to pause the watch history or the search history permanently. You can remove individual watched videos or all the watch history at once but you can't pause it permanently.

So, if you're interested in deleting your Facebook watch history, simply follow the steps below. I will show you how to find what you've watched before and also how to erase it from your Facebook history on both computer and phone. Ready? Let's get started!
