Much like other streaming services, Hulu offers a dedicated watch history feature. This functionality lets you easily resume where you left off and offers insights into your viewing patterns, such as time spent watching and preferred movie and show genres. This history also helps Hulu recommend content tailored to your taste.

Occasionally, you might want to clear your watch history for privacy or when sharing an account. This guide will walk you through steps to view your Hulu watch history, find your watched list, remove specific movies or shows, and clear your entire history if desired.
