There are many reasons why you might want to review your past YouTube comments. Perhaps you want to expand or edit your comment because you’ve realized it’s inaccurate or irrelevant. Maybe you want to delete it because you’re embarrassed by something you said. You might even be particularly proud of your YouTube comment and want to share it with others. Regardless, it’s useful to be able to look at your YouTube comments as and when you like. Luckily, it’s relatively simple to do, so read on for a breakdown of how to see your comments on YouTube.

Step 2: Go to Your Channel
Next, click your profile icon in the top right corner and click Your channel.
Step 3: Find the Video
The video may be on the “Home” tab, but you can also go to “Videos” to see all of your uploaded videos. Find the video you want and click it.
Step 4: Scroll Down to See Comments
Finally, scroll down to find the comment section and see which comments belong to you.

How to See Your Comments on YouTube From Google Activity
There is an alternative way to do this, albeit a little more long-winded but, if you’re already on your Google Activity page, it might come in handy. The steps below illustrate this method.
Step 1: Go to Your Google Activity
Step 2: Go to “Other Activity”
From here, click Other Activity in the left sidebar.
Step 3: Find “Comments on YouTube”
Next, scroll down until you find the “Other activity” section. Within this, there is a section called “Comments on YouTube”. Click “View Comments” below.
Step 4: View Your Comments
Now you can see a chronological list of all the YouTube comments you’ve made. As before, you can edit or remove any comments.
How to See Your Comments on YouTube on a Mobile Platform
It’s also possible to see your Comments on YouTube from the mobile app. The steps for doing this are illustrated next.
Step 1: Open the YouTube App
Firstly, open the YouTube app and make sure you’re signed in.
Step 2: Go to Your Settings
Tap your profile icon in the top right corner and then tap Settings.
Step 3: Go to Your History
Next, tap History and privacy to open this menu.
Step 4: Open Your YouTube History
From here, tap Manage all activity to go to the history review page.
Step 5: View Your Comments
Finally, tap Interactions along the top to open this tab, then tap Comments and replies under “Video interactions”. This will bring you to the same page as the methods before, and you can view and delete your comments.
Overall, viewing your YouTube comments is quite easy, and can be done from the Google Activity website or through YouTube itself, as well as the mobile app. Comments are listed chronologically, and you can view and edit comments by following their video links or you can delete your comments from the comment history page as you wish. The drawback is that comments are displayed in a chronological list with no filters, so it can be tricky to find a comment, especially if you’ve commented a lot. While a thumbnail of the related video is displayed, the channel name is not. Comments made through YouTube Studio rather than through the Watch page are also not shown on this page.
