It’s common to subscribe to a YouTube channel when we find one that has good content and keeps us engaged. You have probably subscribed to a few at least but you have no idea how it is on the other end.
So if you are wondering if Youtubers can see their subscribers or they have no idea you are one of them, we are here to help.
Regardless if it is because you are stalking someone or are just curious to know, we will try to explain what Youtubers will see from you on their side when you subscribe to their channel.
Can Youtubers See Their Subscribers?
The right answer to this question is, it depends. Seeing the subscriber’s information depends on the privacy setting set by the subscriber itself. For example, if you are a subscriber of a YouTube channel and your YouTube Subscriber setting is set to ‘public,’ the Youtuber or the owner of the channel you subscribed to would see your name and profile.
On the other hand, if you set your subscriber’s settings private the Youtubers won’t be able to see your name and profile. Simply put, the information that Youtubers can see about their subscribers depends on the privacy setting set by the latter.
So it depends on you, if you want to remain anonymous make sure to check your privacy settings.
On the other hand if you are a YouTuber and want to know more about your subscribers, regardless of their privacy settings, you can view in-depth information about your channel’s subscriptions in the YouTube Studio Dashboard. Visit Channel Analytics to get more information about Subscribers and how they are interacting with your content.

Youtubers and Subscribers: Definition
Youtubers, as defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary, are people who make videos and upload them on the YouTube platform. These could be private individuals, influencers, commentators, vloggers, make-up artists and content creators.
Subscribers, on the other hand, are the people or accounts that follow a certain YouTube channel. These are the individuals who have a greater probability of seeing your posts on their newsfeed.
How To Manage Subscribers
Subscribers count is an important metric to evaluate a YouTube channel’s success. Youtubers will find out if they have new subscribers on their channel if the notification option is turned on.
Youtubers also have the option to hide the number of subscribers their channel has if they want to. They can also completely block certain subscribers from their channel, restricting them from interacting with it. Youtubers can also restrict their subscribers from commenting on any of its content.
Checking the number of subscribers and the way they engage with your channel’s content is important. It helps to determine what kind of content you need to produce more. Understanding your subscriber better will help you grow your following faster.
