How to turn on comments on YouTube?

YouTube is the most popular video-viewing platform in the world, with over two billion users. YouTube users have a multitude of options for customizing video content.
YouTube comments are often more entertaining than the video itself, and you can join in with just a few clicks.

Step1: Open the YouTube app and log in to your YouTube account if you haven’t already.

Step2: In the top right corner of your screen, click your profile icon.

Step3: Select “YouTube Studio” from the drop-down menu.

Step4: At the bottom of the page, you will find the Setting option. Click on it.

Step5: In the settings, select Community and then click on the Defaults option. Make your changes, and then click the Save button at the bottom of the right side.

If you try to comment when not signed in, YouTube will redirect you to your Google sign-in page.

This video’s creator has blocked comments.

One of the most common reasons why you can’t comment on a YouTube video is that the video creator has disabled the comments feature on some or all of their videos. The video creator may block videos with controversial content to prevent spam or unwanted comments.

Furthermore, if the video is intended for children, comments are disabled by default. When a user uploads a new video, COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) requires them to specify whether the content is intended for children or adults.

The creator of the video has blocked you!

Your account may have been blocked if you have previously posted rude or threatening comments in the video creator’s comment section. You can still watch their videos if you’re blocked, but you won’t be able to leave comments. If you believe you were blocked in error, you can contact the creator via e-mail (if they’ve provided an address) and request that they consider unblocking you. However, only they have the authority to decide whether or not to resume your special rights. YouTube administrators are unable to assist.
