How to Clear YouTube Search History


Hey everyone. I’m Max Dalton, and in this video I’m going
to show you how to clear your YouTube search history. If someone were to comb through your YouTube
search history, the odds are that (at some point) they’re going to come across something
you’d be embarrassed about. Thankfully, YouTube makes it possible to erase
either your entire search history or individual searches. This video will show how to clear your YouTube
search history on both the YouTube desktop website, and the YouTube mobile app for iPhone,
iPad, and Android devices. Let’s start with how to delete your YouTube
search history using the YouTube mobile app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Step 1. Launch the YouTube mobile app on either your
iPhone, iPad, or Android device. You’ll land on the home screen for your YouTube
account. Step 2. Tap the icon associated with your profile
in the upper right corner of the screen. The Account screen appears. Step 3. Tap “Settings.” The Settings screen appears. Scroll down to the History & Privacy section. Step 4. Tap “Clear Search History” in the History
& Privacy section. A Clear Search History dialog box appears
informing you that your entire search history will be cleared across all of your devices. Click “Clear Search History” in the lower
right corner of the dialog box. A Search History Cleared message appears briefly
along the bottom of the screen, and will disappear after a few seconds. Congratulations! Your YouTube search history has been deleted
through the YouTube mobile app. And now let’s talk through how to clear your
YouTube search history on the YouTube desktop website. Step 1. Open your web browser, navigate to youtube.com,
and then log in to your YouTube account if you’re not logged in already. Step 2. Click the “Menu” icon in the upper left corner
of the screen. The Menu icon features three horizontal lines. A menu flys in from the left side of the screen. Step 3. Click “History” in the Library section. A screen displaying your YouTube history appears. Step 4. Click “Search History” beneath History Type
on the right side of the screen to shade in the radio selector to the right of that option. A list of your YouTube searches appears on
the left side of the screen. Step 5. Click the “X” to the right of any individual
YouTube search to delete that specific search item. The search item will instantly be deleted
and replaced with a message that that particular item has been removed from your YouTube search
history. Alternatively, if you want to clear your entire
YouTube search history, click “Clear All Search History” on the right side of the screen. A Clear Search History dialog box appears
informing you that your entire search history will be cleared across all of your devices. Click the red “Clear Search History” button
in the dialog box. A Search History Cleared message appears briefly
in the lower left corner of the screen, before the History screen appears. The search history section on the left side
of the screen will be blank, only displaying a message that says your search history is
empty. Congratulations! Your YouTube search history has been deleted
through the YouTube website. Thanks for watching. Leave your thoughts and questions in the comments
