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 numerous comments on a video, you may not get a notification for every comment — we'll send you an occasional notification instead. 

You may 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 find a comment after getting a notification for reasons like the user deleted the comment, or it was removed due to policy.

Tip: If you've previously opted out of email notifications, go to your account notifications settings. 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.
