How to hide your guilty pleasures on Netflix
To make sure that your guilty pleasures don't pop up, go to your "My Activity" page. Then, click the X beside the show you want to hide. If you've watched an entire series, the page will ask you if you want to delete the series. Just confirm to remove every trace.
The show will disappear into the ether and nobody will be the wiser. Deleting the show history won't affect your suggestion algorithm and won't pop up in lists that may give you away.
When to pull the trigger
Be sure to remove series 24 hours in advance of lending someone your password or viewing with your significant other. They can take that long to be removed from your viewing activity on all devices.
