Change comment notification settings

You can manage whether you receive 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 receive a notification for every comment – we'll send you an occasional notification instead. 

You may 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.

You may not find a comment after receiving a notification for reasons such as 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.

If it is, click the Resume link to start receiving email notifications about comments again.
