Change comment notification settings

You can manage whether or not you get email or mobile notifications about new comments and replies on your videos or channel. If you get a lot of comments on a video, you may not get a notification for every single comment — we'll send you an occasional notification instead. 

If you want to stop receiving email notifications about comments and replies, use the unsubscribe link in one of the emails to opt out of these types of notifications.

Manage email notifications

  1. Go to and sign in to your account.
  2. In the top right, click your account icon > settings icon Settings.
  3. On the left, click Notifications to get to your account notifications.
  4. Select Send me emails about my YouTube activity.
Tip: If you've previously opted out of email notifications, go to your account notifications settings and make sure that email notifications for comments isn't in the list of email types that you've unsubscribed from. If it is, just click the Resume link to start getting email notifications about comments again.
