    Using the Netflix app is more than difficult as they've hidden the Account settings menu in a bizarre nesting of multiple layers of nest icons.

    I find it easier (well only relatively, as I think their user interfaces, both app and web interface, are horrific) to log into my Netflix account using a web browser and and get to my Account settings that way. Log into your account, click on your account icon in the upper right corner so a contextual drop-down menu shows and select 'Account'. Your Account settings window should show. Go to the Account & Parental Controls section, click on the down arrow to the right of your user account name, and in the resulting menu click on View to the right of Viewing Activity.

    The Netflix app also allows one to delete shows in that 'Continue Watching for {user name}', which might be what you're asking about? That's the most obvious indicator of stuff you're currently watching. (the other stuff refer to your viewing history). Tap on the three vertical dot menu on the show in question's icon and there's a 'Remove From Row' option.
