Change comment notification settings

You can manage whether 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 comment — we'll send you an occasional notification instead. 

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

You may not be able to find a comment after getting a notification for reasons like the comment was deleted by the user, or it was removed due to policy.

Manage email notifications

  1. Go to and sign in to your account.
  2. In the top right, click your profile picture  and then Settings 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, click the Resume link to start getting email notifications about comments again.
