In this article, we give you the only possible way as of 2020 to delete old youtube comments that you posted on particular channels. This method is not as straightforward or easy as deleting old comments from the youtube webpage. If you want to see how to delete all the comments that you gave on youtube, check out the post below.

How To Delete All YouTube Comments Easily

All the possible methods of deleting your youtube comments

In the earlier days, the only way to delete previous comments that you posted on youtube was to manually delete them by going to the youtube history tab on the youtube webpage. Although there is a history tab on the youtube app, still to this day, the only options available on it is to see the watch history. You will be able to delete all the videos that you watched from your channel from your history. Deleting these videos will, in turn, affect the youtube recommendations that you receive on your home page.

The only possible way to see any of the old comments that you posted on youtube from your youtube app was to, remember which video you posted them on and then manually search for the comment. Imagine a video with over 1000 comments and the task to find your particular comment is equivalent to searching for a needle in a haystack. This new method that we are about to follow is a much easier method than this. However, this method still is no comparison to deleting the comments from the webpage. But it is all we got as of 2020.

New Method

Again this method is not a straightforward method where you can see all the comments that you posted from your account. To collectively delete old comments you will have to follow the steps mentioned in the link given above. The major problem associated with this method is that you will have to remember the channel that you posted your comment on, but not the particular video. So in case you posted some comment that you wish to delete later on from someone’s video, all you have to do is follow these steps.

Warning: This method will not work if you don’t know which channel you posted the comment on.

Step 1

Go to the channel where you posted the comment/comments that you wish to delete.

For eg: Consider you posted a lot of comments on a particular channel. Here, for example, I am considering a channel I am subscribed to and have posted a few comments on. Click on the channel to enter their page.

Step 2

Go to the “VIDEOS” tab on the channel and select any video that you want.

Step 3

Type any random comment and post. You will see why you should do this in the next step.

 

Step 4

Now you will see your comment displayed in the comment section as shown below. Click on your profile pic.

Step 5

After clicking on your profile pic, you will see a pop up appear from the bottom of your screen. You can drag the pop up to make it full screen. It will look like the picture shown below. As you can see, I ‘ve posted three comments in total on this channel from my account. Clicking on the ‘>’ symbol at the end of the comment will take you to the video where you posted the comment and your comment will be highlighted at the top of the comment section as shown below.

Step 6

Clicking on the ‘>’ symbol at the end of the comment will take you to the video where you posted the comment and your comment will be highlighted at the top of the comment section as shown below.

 

Step 7

To delete the highlighted comment click on the 3 dots on its side. You will see the option to edit and delete the comment.

An obvious flaw with this method is that you can only delete comments if you know which channel you posted them on. Another problem is that suppose you posted a lot of comments on a channel, you will have to delete them from the latest to previous as all of them will not show on the pop up mentioned above.
