I recently noticed I had a number of comments on YouTube that I wasn’t even aware of. Some dated back 6 months ago and I apologise to my readers and subscribers for not responding. I have caught up so far and also decided to check why I didn’t receive any comment notifications either by email or via the YouTube mobile app.

Upon further inspection, it appears these notifications were turned off. I may have accidentally turned them off without even realising. After some digging around I managed to figure out how to turn them back on and wanted to write the instructions here in case I have to do them again:

USING BROWSER

Open any browser and type this URL (it was too hard to navigate to the notifications section – trust me it’s much faster just clicking on the link): https://www.youtube.com/account_notifications

If you still want to navigate to the notifications, go to your YouTube channel and click settings.

Then make sure the toggle button is on the right-hand side for Activity on my comments and Replies to my comments
