How to Check facebook video history on Mobile and PC

| Updated on: October 18, 2019

You opened the Facebook app > Found a video while scrolling through newsfeed > You played the video and enjoyed watching that video > Spend some more time on Facebook > Closed the Facebook app > After few Hours or a day you opened the Facebook app again > You want to watch the video again that you had watched last time > But unfortunately you didn’t find that video anywhere on your facebook news feed.

I guess this is a common situation with all of us. As Facebook does not offer any standard Video history like Youtube, so it’s not easy for us to find a video that we have viewed earlier.

So, does it mean that you can’t find videos you watched on Facebook earlier? No, not at all. In this post, I’ll talk about How to Check facebook video history on Mobile and PC as well as how to delete watched videos history on Facebook.
