What Is the Difference Between YouTube Private and Unlisted?

There are two different ways to make a video unlisted: private and unlisted. They both have the same purpose—to control who can see your video—but they’re different in how they work.


Youtube Private vs Unlisted

Unlisted Youtube Videos

YouTube Unlisted is a new privacy setting that prevents your video from being shown in search results and prevents people from finding your video if they know the URL. It also hides your video from anybody who has shared a link to your video, making it impossible for them to share the link again.

You can choose to share your video privately in two ways:

1. By adding a link to the video on the YouTube channel app or website

2. By adding a link to the video in an email, text message, or social media post

When you privately share a video on YouTube, anyone who has access to the private link will be able to see it. If you don’t want other people to know that there’s a video linked somewhere out there on the web, use Unlisted instead!


Private Videos

Private YouTube videos are videos that you can only see if you’ve been invited to watch them.

If you’re the creator of a private video, you have to send invites to people who want to view it. The person who creates the video can also choose who gets access—like friends or family members, or maybe even just one person.

When you create a private video, it’s set up in such a way that only people who have been invited will be able to see it. Even if someone finds your video through search results and clicks on it, they won’t be able to see it unless they’ve been invited.


Public Videos

Youtube is a video hosting platform and social media network. Users can upload, view, rate and share videos.

If you want to make your public youtube videos, here’s how:

1. Sign in to Youtube.com

2. Click on your profile icon in the top-right corner of the page

3. Select “Creator Studio” from the drop-down menu

4. Click on “Video Manager” in the left sidebar

5. Click on one of your public videos and select “Make Public” from its dropdown menu

There are a few ways to share your videos with others.

First, let’s look at the difference between public and private videos. Public videos are available to anyone who looks for them—you can’t hide them from people who want to find them. Private videos are only available to people you share them with; they won’t appear on the main page of your account or in suggestions.

To create a private video, go to your account settings and click “Create Private Video.” This will take you to a screen where you can enter a title and description for your video. You can also set who will have access to it by selecting a group of people from your list of friends or followers.

Once you’ve done that, click save and it will be added to your library as a private video! If you ever change your mind about sharing it, just go back through these steps and make sure the box next to “Private” is unchecked.


Using a public YouTube video for sharing

This is a great way to share information with others who may not have access to the same resources as you do and can’t afford to pay for an account.

1. First, go to YouTube and search for a video that’s public.

2. Once you find one that’s public, click on it.

3. Now you’ll see some options about sharing it on your site or with others via email, etcetera—but let’s say you want to put it on your own site so people visiting could watch it without having to go through YouTube first (and maybe even download it).

4. Click “Share” at the top of the page next to where it says “Copy Link”. This will give you a link that starts with “youtube.” You’ll need this later when creating links on your site or blog posts!


How to modify the privacy settings for YouTube videos

Changing your YouTube video privacy settings is a great way to control who sees your content and who doesn’t. You can choose to make your videos visible only to people with a YouTube account, or you can make them public so that anyone can see them.

Here’s how:

1. Log in to your YouTube account.

2. Click your name in the top right corner of the screen and then click Creator Studio from the drop-down menu.

3. Click on the video that you want to adjust video privacy settings for (or select multiple videos by holding down Ctrl or Command while clicking on each one).

4. Under Video Manager, click Video Privacy in the left sidebar and then click Edit next to Public Visibility (all viewers) at the top of the page.

5. Choose between Private (only unlisted video are visible), Unlisted (videos can be found by searching but not through direct links), or Public (anyone can watch this video). You can also choose the Select custom option if you would like to set specific criteria for who can watch your video (e.g., only people who are subscribed). If you have any restricted videos, they will be listed here as well.


Private and unlisted videos

You can choose to make a video private and unlisted by selecting the ‘private’ option when adding the video to the platform.

Private videos are for you and your friends. They’re only visible to people you’ve approved as viewers, and you can’t make them public.

Unlisted videos are also visible to anyone who visits your channel, but they won’t appear in search results or related videos. You can also choose to make them private after they’re uploaded.

These are great for sharing things with friends or coworkers that you don’t want everyone to see! If a video is unlisted, it’s even more private than private—it won’t show up in search results. You can also set a password for your video so that not just anyone can watch it.

What is the purpose of a YouTube video that is unlisted?

Unlisted videos

The purpose of a YouTube video that is unlisted is to let you share it with a select group of people. A lot of people use this for things like unboxing videos, or to show their friends and family what they got for Christmas. It’s also great for promotions and contests, where you want to make the video available only to people who are eligible to win.

Unlisted videos are only accessible by people who have been given a link to the video by you. They can’t be found by searching for them or clicking on links that lead to them.

Both Youtube Unlisted and Private mode help you keep your videos private, but there are some key differences that make them unique. While Pateron is a great option for creators who want to monetize their content, it’s important to note that it’s not the only option out there. If you’re looking for something that allows you to charge people for access to your content or have a membership-based platform, then Patreon is probably a better choice. However, if you’re just looking to keep your videos from being seen by everyone and anyone on YouTube, then YouTube Unlisted is probably the way to go.
