Q. How do I bulk delete my YouTube comments?

Unfortunately, you cannot delete all of your youtube comments at once. You can either delete every comment one by one or make all your comments private.

Q. How do you see the exact date of any YouTube comment?

Visit and paste the YouTube video link where the comment was posted. After processing, you could get a specific comment’s exact date and time.

Q. How to tell if your YouTube comment was deleted? 

There is no way to determine whether your comment was deleted. You can either go through all the comments to check whether your comment is visible (or) you can use the “Find” option from your web browser on the YouTube web version.

That’s it!

I hope this guide helped you see, edit, and even delete your YouTube comments. I think this is a great feature, especially if you often comment in a hurry and make a mistake. On a side note, how often do you comment on YouTube videos? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
