If you don’t want others to see what you’ve been watching on YouTube®, there are ways to hide or delete your video watching history.

Hiding your history will keep past videos in your YouTube® account, but keep the views from everyone else. Hiding is a useful tool because it makes finding previously viewed videos easy and can help locate similar ones for you. Of course, if you want to completely remove them from your account, you can delete your history.

Below are 6 steps you can take to delete your YouTube® watching history or pause storing videos in your history.  You can decide which is best for you.

Clearing or Pausing Your YouTube® history:

  1. Launch your Internet Browser and go to YouTube®.
  2. Log in to your account.
  3. Click on the dropdown arrow next to your profile picture. It is located in the upper-right corner of the page.
  4. Select the “Video Manager” option.
  5. In the left navigation pane, switch to the “Watch History”.
  6. Now that you can see your account history, you have two options:
    Clear all watch history – deletes all videos you have stored in history for this account.
    Pause watch history
    – stops storing videos in your history.

Tips and Tricks

  • Once in Video Manager, you can selectively remove specific videos. Just click the checkbox on the left side of each video you’d like removed and then click the “Remove” button located at the top.
