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!
