How to Stop YouTube From Recording The Videos That You Watch Or Search


Remove Youtube Record

Youtube records all the videos that you watch or search for on the site. This shouldn’t come as a surprise to you, given the fact that the video hosting and sharing site is owned by Google. You can easily wipe clean this history. However, Youtube provided no option to stop it from archiving your activities on the site. This has changed as Youtube now enables you to disable your video watching activities on the site. In this article we will explain how to stop Youtube from recording the videos that you watch or search.

How to Stop YouTube From Recording The Videos That You Watch Or Search

In order to stop Youtube from recording your activities on the site, do the following:

  • Sign in to Youtube.
  • Now go to Settings.
  • Click on the Video Manager tab.
  • Go to History from the menu on the left.
  • Click on “Pause viewing history” to stop Youtube from keeping a history of all watched videos.
  • You can also clear all your viewing history by clicking the “Clear all viewing history” button.
  • Now go to Search History from the menu on the left.
  • Click on “Pause search history” button to stop Youtube from keeping a history of all your video searches.
  • Wipe out your video search history by clicking the “Clear all search history” button.

You can always resume the video and search history by going back to History and Search History menus in the Video Manager.

  1. What if you don’t have an account? It still shows me recommended videos even if i delete my browsing history. Also, when i go on the computer, it reccommends vidoes based on videos i watched on my ipad, not the computer. Kind of creepy. Is there any way to stop or undo this if you dont have an account?
