View, organise or delete comments

If a video's owner has turned on comments, you can post comments and like, dislike or reply to other comments on a video.

View comments on a video

To view comments on a video, scroll on the video's page. Replies are threaded to make it easy to follow conversations. YouTube comments are public and anyone can reply to a comment that you post.

If you can't find a comment after you get a notification, it's possible that the comment has already been removed. Comments can be removed by the original poster, the channel owner or for policy violations.

If you think that a comment is inappropriate, you can report it as spam or abuse. If you're a creator, you can also use the comment moderation tools to manage comments on your videos.
View your comment history

You can view public comments that you've left across YouTube.

  1. Go to Comment history.
  2. To go to the original place where you posted your comment, click or tap the content.

If you commented on a deleted video or if YouTube removed your comment for a policy violation, it won't show in this history.
