Amazon Prime keeps track of the movies and shows you’ve watched so that it can recommend other titles you may be interested in. It’s a helpful feature in theory, but if you share an account with someone that has different tastes than you, or if you watch a few episodes of a show before deciding it isn’t for you, it can lead to some irrelevant recommendations.

There’s a way to remove titles from your Amazon Prime watch history as well as your Continue Watching list. Here’s everything you need to know.
