How to Look at the YouTube History on Mobile

By Cee Jay

YouTube automatically stores the history of every video you view online. From the mobile website, this information is listed in your account settings, but it can also be seen using the YouTube app, which was made available to mobile devices in 2007. Accessing your viewing history will vary depending on the type of phone you have.

Things You'll Need

  • Mobile Web browser

Press the YouTube icon on your cellphone.

Step 2

Tap "More," in the bottom right corner.

Step 3

Tap "History." The results may take a while to load if you are on Edge or a slow Wi-Fi connection.

Web History
