For the past few days, I have been feeling that I am commenting on way too many YouTube videos. I was getting into arguments with strangers for no good reason. We all have that urge to show everyone how righteous we are, and my way is the high way. All this starts affecting your mental health. The content which is being uploaded on YouTube nowadays is created to divide people into groups to fetch more and more reactions so that videos can get more reviews.
So I went on YouTube and started deleting my comments. I was amazed at how many comments I was making every day. Here are the steps needed to check or delete the comment activity on YouTube.
When you click on “1,000+ comments,” a new page with all your comment activity will open up. You can check all your past comments. To delete your comment, click on the “X.” There is no bulk delete option now.
Note to YouTube developers: Please add a bulk delete option to delete multiple comments simultaneously. Delete all YouTube comments is also a good option.
Here is a short video of what happens after you click on the “X” and delete your comment. The comments are removed one by one and take some time. So don’t close the page or shut down your computer after deleting many comments, as the process will stop, and you have to start over again.
I am done making all the silly comments and trying to delete them all.
I did not have any solution to auto bulk delete YouTube comments before. So I searched and found an amazing Chrome extension called YouTube Comment Deleter. You can download it from the Chrome Web Store Extensions. It is not perfect as it may take a lot of time depending on the number of comments.
Watch the video and follow the steps given below:
That will start the process of deletion, which you can see in the video I made below. Please don’t shut down chrome or close the Youtube comments activity page where the Chrome extension script is running. This will interrupt the comment deletion process.
