i AM HAVING THE SAME ISSUE EVEN AFTER YOU CLEAR EACH VIDEO INDIVIDUALLY FROM THE ACTIVITY LOG. I NEED THE ANSWER – THEY ONLY WHOW HOW TO CLEAR THE ACTIVITY LOG, NOT THE ACTUAL HISTORY ON IPHONE OR IPAD!
Trying to delete watch history totally but the is no “clear all” but to the right of videos watched.
It was there in the previous version, but the updated. Anyway, I will figure some alternative ways to do the thing.
Unable to play the watched video from the activity log.but delete option works.when the video is clicked from activity log..nothing happens.I am using samsung A71. Same is working in old mobile A7.
That’s fine in the activity log, but when you go back to Watch (on iPhone), and hit search and then videos watched, everything is still there. I have so many and want to delete some so my search for previous videos is not as tedious.
I am using Facebook on an android phone. I have the same problem as Gary Bean. I went to the activity log, clicked category, and then “Videos You’ve Watched” . There was a long list. I deleted most of the items. However, if I am on my Home page, then click the Watch symbol (solid triangle within a square), the next screen shows WATCH and a search symbol (among other things). If I click on the search symbol, the next screen will show a search box, and under that Videos You’ve Watch with an arrow pointing to right. Clicked on right arrow. Next screen has 4 items including History. Clicked on history and there is the FULL list of videos I watched since getting on Facebook recently. March. 2020. So I am seeing two different lists under ‘Videos You’ve Watched”, going there by different paths..
Sir I had tried all the procedures you told still it showing the everything in watch history and some in watched history
I can show the procedure in a video and 100% working. However, in your case, if you really followed the steps mentioned in the article to delete Facebook watch video history. Then consider wiping your phone’s cache, or try deleting Facebook app data. Go to Settings, Apps, find Facebook, then go to Storage and delete its data. Note that the process will log you out of the Facebook app. Please follow the updated section of the article as well for your help.
Same here I go tto settings and watched video they are gone but hit the person icon they are all there yet!
In the latest Facebook app, tap Filters then category and you will need to find the watched video history, it is still there don’t worry. It’s under logged action and other activity.
I clear everything in the activity log but when I click the video tab and click on search i see there watched video and all videos that i watched since the start is still there, The process doesnt clear any video I watched, I also uninstall the program and clear everything, redownload and logged back and those videos are still there
Then these are the files I mean caches stored in your phone, reset your caches using Avast Cleaner for Android and iPhone. But before doing so, clear the watched video history then do it. This will definitely help.
Did all you said but it’s still not working some videos still are in watched history
Impossible, do it the way explained in the article. You may have missed deleting history or may have filter issues.
If you delete the watched video history do you have to delete it again after you watch more videos or is there a way so that it does not save a history for videos that you watched?
okay… I deleted all the videos I watched using the “activity log” feature; but, so far, problem is: not all of my watched videos are there to be deleted!
from “activity log” i cannot either see or delete any live-streamed videos I ever watched, and I cannot either see or delete any live-streamed gameplays I ever watched.
so, how can i get rid of my “watched videos” history? oh dude, that’s annoying!
thanks in advance for helping me.
How do I actually watch the video from my watched video history?
You cannot tap and open it?
