Change comment notification settings

Use notification settings to manage whether you get email and mobile notifications about activity on your channel, including new comments and replies.

When reviewing settings, keep in mind that consecutive comments on a video may not lead to notifications for each. We send you an occasional notification instead.

You can also manage comment notifications in the YouTube Studio app on your mobile device.
