How to Make a Video Private on Youtube


When you publish videos to YouTube, the visibility settings for such videos will automatically be set to public. Because of this, they can be viewed by anybody and subjected to their feedback. You have the option, though, to make a video private if that is more to your liking. That entails exactly what it sounds like: it is concealed from the general public, and the only person who may view it is you, the creator (though it is possible to share private videos with specific people). Here’s how to lock down a YouTube video on your desktop or mobile device so that only you can watch it.

You have the option of keeping a video that you post to YouTube private either while you are in the process of uploading it or after you have already done so.

2. From your mobile device, navigate to the video you want to watch, and then tap the “Next” button.

3. When you are on the page for inputting details, select the “Public” option from the drop-down menu.

4. From the choice that appears when the window shows up, select the option that reads “Private – Only You Can View.”
