How to Hide, Remove and Disable Comments on YouTube Videos

By default, other people can leave comments on your published YouTube videos. Generally, if a video gets more comments, it means it’s more popular on YouTube. However, some malicious men leave rude, disparaging, and annoying comments on your YouTube videos, and some people advertise their companies/products using the popularity of your videos, which may give the video viewers a bad impression. In this case, you may want to hide, remove, or disable comments on your YouTube videos. Now, this page will show how to do this.
