Changing comment settings in YouTube Studio
Changing comment settings in YouTube Studio lets you manage the number of comments displayed in your video and hide certain commenters. By default, all comments are displayed on your video. However, you can choose to hold some comments for review. These comments will appear in a consolidated “Awaiting Review” tab for 60 days. After this time, you can choose to delete them or hold them for review. You can also save comments for later viewing.
To turn off comments on your video, go to your YouTube home screen and click on the channel icon in the upper right-hand corner. Click the pencil-shaped Details button next to the video thumbnail. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen to locate Comments and ratings. You can also disable comments. Select the option that best suits your needs. Changing comment settings in YouTube Studio is simple and straightforward. Just follow the steps outlined below.
Firstly, sign in to your YouTube account. On the main screen, click on the profile picture in the top right-hand corner. Next, choose the YouTube Studio option from the menu. This will take you to your YouTube community dashboard. Once you’re there, select the Defaults tab. Choose Restricted Mode to hide comments from your videos. If you don’t want to disable comments, you can select Restricted Mode for your videos.

Changing comment settings for individual videos
If you want to prevent certain comments from appearing on your video, you can use the commenting system that YouTube provides to manage the comments on your videos. To manage the comments, go to the settings page on YouTube and select “Content.” Next, click on the thumbnail of the video to access the commenting options. You can order comments on your video by the date they were added, top comments, or both. Once you’ve chosen your comment settings, you can edit them to suit your needs.
You can also choose to hide certain users. This allows you to see their comments but will make them invisible to other viewers. If you want to hide your users, their comments will not appear on your video. In YouTube Creator Studio, go to the “Automated Filters” tab and click “Hidden users.”
Then, tap “Delete” and confirm your action. When you click “Delete,” you will see a message that reads, “Comment Deleted.” If you delete a comment, it means it will be permanently deleted. Once deleted, all comments that were made to that video will be removed as well. By clicking “Delete” and verifying your action, you can delete comments on your YouTube videos.
Reporting a comment or user
If you find a YouTube video or comment offensive, you can report it by using the reporting feature. Although the system does not take down every piece of content, it does review it to see if it violates the community guidelines. If you have received many reports about a video, it is unlikely that the video will be removed from YouTube. In general, it is better to make friends with people on YouTube rather than report them.
The reporting feature is hidden on most YouTube pages, but it is available when you hover your mouse over the content. Hover your mouse over the comment to see the three dots on the right side of the comment. Click on the “Report” button and choose the reason for reporting it. If the report you wish to report is not appropriate for the video, you can still flag it and send it to the proper channel.
In addition to reports, the reporting feature also allows you to view data in bulk. A bulk data set of videos can be imported and exported through the API. When you use the Reporting API, you must enable authorization from the YouTube developer account. You can do this using the OAuth 2.0 protocol. Once you have granted authorization, you can report a comment or user. Once the report has been approved, you will see a summary of all reports, including the one you are interested in.
