It’s simple to keep Netflix viewing history private
Question: I binge-watch on Netflix, and I don’t want my wife to see. How do you hide what you have watched on Netflix?
A: Hide your viewing history by following these steps. First, log in to your Netflix account on your computer. Next, visit Netflix.com/WiViewingActivity. Each title you’ve watched will show up in this section, so just click the X next to the ones you’d like to delete. This will remove that title from both the “Viewing Activity” and “Continue Watching” pages.
But there is a downside. If you change your mind, you have to rewatch that show to add it back to your list. It also can take up to 24 hours for the title to be removed from all of your devices.
Q: I would like to put a spy cam in my mother’s assisted-living room. Is there one that people would not notice?
A: Try the Tissue Box Portable Camera from Amazon. This law-enforcement grade camera will blend right in since it looks just like a normal box of tissues. It has a remote control so you can operate the camera from a distance, and an 8 GB memory card to store the recorded footage. Another great option is a portable radio clock that has a built-in camera. The Jumbi Mini Hidden Spy Camera Radio Clock has motion detection, 32 GB of storage and infrared night vision.
Q: Is it better to lease your phone or buy it? I have a phone from my employer. I just cannot seem to figure out what’s best for my wife and son.
A: Leasing a smartphone is a good idea if you like having the latest model every year. When you lease, you make monthly payments and can typically upgrade every 12 months. If you decide you don’t want to upgrade after 12 months, you can continue making your payments until you’ve paid it off and have full ownership of the phone.
