YouTube keeps track of your recent watched videos and search history to improve your video recommendations. Sometimes you may want to erase YouTube history for the purpose of protecting your privacy. As a matter of fact, you can view YouTube History, remove and pause your watch history and search history on computer, or on iOS device.

Clear History Youtube

You can either delete individual items or delete your entire history and if you pause history, any videos that you watched, any search contents that you typed won’t show in history and won’t be used to improve your recommendations any longer. You can unpause your history to start recording history again anytime you want.

Please note that when you are signed in, changes you’ve made to your watch history will appear on all devices that signed in with the same iTunes account. When you are signed out, changes you’ve made will be applied to the watch history for this specific browser or app.
