Here’s How to Delete Your (Potentially Embarrassing) Netflix History
Not everyone needs to be privy to our binge-watching indulgences, nor do they need to know how many episodes of the Gilmore Girls you watched in one sitting. Your bae certainly doesn’t need to know that you snuck ahead and finished Stranger Things without them and have moved onto the next must-watch Netflix series. That’s why you should take advantage of the fact that you can clear your Netflix history, just the way you clean up your Internet browsing history. Not that you’d have any guilty pleasures to be embarrassed about though, right? *cough cough*
If you’d like to keep your viewing biz private, here’s what you need to do.
On your laptop or desktop, head into your Netflix account. Once you’re there, click Settings > Your Account > Viewing Activity. There it is: the evidence of every binge-watching session and guilty pleasure. Before anyone can take a peek over your shoulder, delete the items you don’t want visible and you’re done.
If you’d rather go about things on your smartphone, head into Netflix and click Settings > Account. This will take you over to the Netflix website, where you can do the same removal process as above.
Now get deleting before anyone sees that you watched — shhhhh!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
