Being signed-in in our Google account we watch several videos including some content that we don’t let others show. This happens if some content of our watched videos may be adult or of any other kind of content that we will not want to show publicly. If our Google account is used only by us then there will be no issue because no one can see YouTube history unless he is logged to our account. But if we are compelled to share our Google account with anybody else, he can see our YouTube watch history and find out what we have watched recently or in the past.

That is why Google offers an option to clear YouTube watch history. You can clear entire watch history or you can even clear history for some specific watched videos.
