YouTube is a video platform where people share informative and entertaining content. It works in the form of channels belonging to individuals or companies. People can subscribe to these channels to show support, and YouTubers create a strong sense of community with these subscribers.
But some people comment inappropriate comments that can cause the community harm and spread hatred. Many YouTubers may want to delete such remarks. There are also times when you accidentally comment on a channel’s comment section and may wish to delete it.
So how do you delete all YouTube comments? In this how-to blog, we will show you.
Once you log in, you need to go to your channel. For this, you can select the My Channel option from the upper-left side of your YouTube home page.
From the list of your videos, select the one you need and scroll down to reach the comment you want to delete.
When you locate the comment, click on the three vertical dots on the right-hand side of the comment. From the drop-down list, click on Remove. The process is complete, and YouTube will remove your comment.
If your YouTube account is not open, tap on Sign in and enter your email and password to log in to your account.
Once there, you need to access your Comment History page. To do this, you can click on the three horizontal lines at the top left corner of your YouTube homepage. Click on History. On the page that opens, click Comments from the panel on the right. It will direct you to your Comment History page. You can also access the YouTube comment history from here.
When you reach the Comment History page, you will be able to find all comments you have ever posted. Scroll down to the comment you want to delete.
Click on the three vertical dots that you see beside the target comment. You will find a Delete option. Tap on it, and confirm that you want to delete the comment. That completes the process. No more embarrassing comments!
