How To Disable Comments on a YouTube Video

The YouTube comment section is a communication tool that shows the creator how the audience is reacting to the uploaded video. This is whereby the audience can either criticize the video or show support for it.

Sometimes most people are not commenting to contribute to a particular topic, but to promote their agenda. For example, your comment section can be filled by spammers who tend to promote their services.

As a creator, you can decide to turn off the comment section to avoid such comments. YouTube has made it easier to wipe out inappropriate, irrelevant, and offensive comments so you can spend time with people that matter. We will show you how to disable comments on a YouTube video.
