How to clear YouTube history
YouTube is an extremely popular video hosting website. While you watch videos, YouTube saves all views in the special tab History. This is made for your convenience, as you can very fast find some interesting video, which you want to see again. There is another way to save the favorite video - download it with YTD Video Downloader or with Freemake Video Downloader.
Unfortunately, YouTube piles up in the tab History too many records about videos, so navigation can be somewhat difficult. Due to this, you can:
- delete all history on YouTube;
- remove certain videos from YouTube history.
