Android 101: A little privacy in the YouTube app | Android Central

Youtube Privacy

Go ahead, admit it: You've probably searched Youtube for something you'd prefer nobody know about. Nyan Cat. Teletubbies. Justin Bieber. The iPhone. Hey, we won't judge.

There's a quick and easy way to cover your tracks, though. Just dive into the Youtube app, hit the menu button, then choose settings. There you have a couple of search settings options. One clears the search history. The other will "block videos containing restricted content from appearing in search results." It's a pre-emptive strike, if you will. And while it won't keep Justin Bieber from showing in your Youtube search results, it should keep your more nefarious searches away from prying eyes.

Android 101: A little privacy in the YouTube app


I just had a friend teasing me the other day because mine was full of Barney clips & childrens songs from when I try to keep my son occupied.

I already knew how to clear the results, but it's a funny coincidence regardless.

Seriously what kind of content is on you tube that you don't want anyone to see what you searched for? Maybe I need to search just to see what is out there. Lol
