View/Edit/Delete Your YouTube Comment History on iOS

If you have an iPhone, iPad or iPod, you can easily track and manage your YouTube comments using a browser. The YouTube app for iOS does not offer comment management functionality. Here's how to do it.

  2. In the upper left corner, click the "hamburger icon" (three horizontal lines) to launch the YouTube options menu.
  3. From the options menu, select " Story. »
  4. In the "MANAGE ALL HISTORY" section, select “Comments. » You'll see a list of all the comments you've posted, starting with the most recent. For older comments, scroll down the list. Click on a comment to open the video associated with it.
  5. To delete a comment, click the "vertical ellipsis" (three vertical dots) on the right side of the narrated video, then tap " Wipe off. "
  6. To edit a comment, click the “Commented on…” link, not the video image. This link loads the page with your comment at the top, titled "Highlighted Comment".

If you can't find a comment in your history, the channel owner may have already deleted it, or you just forgot you deleted it. YouTube admins can also delete comments if they violate site rules. If the channel owner deletes a video, all discussions posted under it will also disappear.
