How to view it as another user with your browser?

There are two ways to proceed to the third option:

  • Normal mode: Log out of your YouTube account. Open a new window in your browser and type https://www.youtube.com/user/username where you replace "username" with your actual username.
  • Incognito mode: If you don't want to log out of your account, then open a new window in incognito mode and then type https://www.youtube.com/user/username in the search bar. Don't forget to replace "username" with your actual username.
