Learn about search history on YouTube


Hi, I’m Rebecca, and today let’s talk
about YouTube’s search history. As you’ve probably guessed from the name,
search history shows what you’ve previously searched for when signed into your YouTube
account. Editing your search history will influence
what videos YouTube recommends to you. Let’s say you’ve searched for a certain
topic, like making mashed potatoes, but now you’re seeing all potatoes in your feed.
Just go to your search history to clear out all your potato searches and you won’t see
recommendations based on them in the future. Just keep in mind that when you clear these
terms, there’s no way to undo it. If you want to learn more about recommendations
and removing recommended content in general, just click this card in the corner.
And before I go, I just want to cover your search history on phones and tablets. While
you can’t see your search terms on mobile, you’ll see them when you sign into a computer
on the same account. Also, your search history will be cleared out from the search bar when
you either switch accounts or sign out. If you’d like to learn more about finding,
clearing, or pausing your search history, check out the description below. And be sure
