Comments disabled by creator in video’s settings

You can choose to turn on or turn off comments on a specific video in YouTube Studio. If you turn off comments on your video, viewers won’t be able to comment on your video. Learn how to choose your comment settings.

Comments turned off by YouTube

YouTube may have turned off comments on some videos for safety reasons, like to protect minors. This is not a result of your content violating our guidelines.

Depending on the video, channel owners may be able to turn comments back on. We know that comments are important to creators and viewers alike, but we also take the safety of minors seriously.

How can I turn comments back on for my video?

If comments on your video have only been temporarily turned off, updating your video’s comment settings will allow comments to appear on your video again.

If you re-enable comments and have minors in any of your videos, you should hold and carefully review all new comments. This lets you review comments before they're publicly posted to your videos.
