Do you want to clean up the content you have been consuming on YouTube the past couple of days? Say no more. You can do that easily and have a fresh start on YouTube once again!
Here is how you can do it in a few simple steps:
Removing Private Videos from Liked Youtube
YouTube history contains all the YouTube videos that you have watched and searched for in the past. This section also includes all the videos you have liked, and this activity is tracked to improve your user experience on the platform. This way, you can get better recommendations from the creators you enjoy watching.
YouTube has a feature that creates a separate playlist for all your liked and disliked videos. This is done so that the YouTube videos you watch help Google give you more personalized experiences on Google services in the form of recommendations.
However, YouTube provides the flexibility to delete some or all of this data. It takes a few hours for the data to stop showing on YouTube once you have deleted it permanently.
