Like most websites and apps, Spotify keeps tabs on your activity while using the platform, and compiles your recently played tracks into one section.

That being said, you might need to clear your recently played list if you don't want someone else using your account and seeing the music you listen to, or maybe you simply want to reorganize your Spotify account.

It's important to note that you can only clear your recently played list on the desktop version of Spotify , as the feature was recently removed from the mobile version. And even if you clear your recently played on your computer, it won't be cleared on your iPhone or Android device.

Here's how to clear your recently played on Spotify using your computer.
