Turn Channel Comments (Discussion) Off

You can decide if you want to allow viewers to comment on your channel by turning the discussion tab on or off.

  • Sign in to your YouTube account on a computer.
  • On the left, select My channel.
  • Under your channel banner, click settings.
  • Turn Show discussion tab on or off.
  • If you have the discussion tab turned on, choose a comments setting:
    • Display automatically: Comments will always show on your channel.
    • Don't display until approved: Comments won't show on your channel until you approve them.

Comments are not available on private videos. If you want to allow comments on a video that's not publicly available, post an unlisted video instead.

Alternatively, you can filter or disable comments on single videos
