How Can You See Who Subscribed to Your YouTube Channel?

YouTube Studio is where you need to go. Do it on a desktop browser because the mobile app doesn’t have the studio.

Moreover, YouTube isn’t optimized for mobile browsers yet.

Open a desktop browser, go to YouTube, click on your profile picture, and select YouTube Studio.

Once you click on YouTube studio, you’ll be taken to the Dashboard.

Here, you can customize your YouTube channel and see the performance analytics.

To the left, you’ll see a bar with multiple menus.

You should be on the main dashboard when you first open the studio.

On the main page, you’ll see the analytics.

At the top is your current subscriber count. Below, you’ll see a summary of the last 28 days – number of views and watch time.

If you go to Channel Analytics, you’ll see a more detailed guide on your channel’s performance.

You need to find the Recent subscribers menu on your Dashboard.

It’s in the main Dashboard window. You don’t need to go to Channel Analytics.

Look for it at the bottom of the Dashboard, so if need be, scroll down to the very bottom.

In the Recent Subscribers menu, you should see a “See all” option.

Click on it to see all your recent subscribers. However, you’ll only be able to see the last 100 people who subscribed to your channel.

Once you get to your Subscriber list, you can click “Data subscribed” to list your subscribers from newest to oldest or vice-versa.

Moreover, you’ll only see the YouTube subscribers who made their subscriptions public. Those who made them private won’t appear there.

However, they’ll appear in your subscriber count, even though you can’t see their channel name.

You can only see the most recent subscribers in the last 28 days.

However, you can change the time marks to the channel’s lifetime.

You can also see which of your YouTube subscribers have the most.


It’s important to know who subscribed to your channel because there might be a famous creator who subscribed to you.

Now that they broke the ice by subscribing to you, it’s an opportunity to jump into a collaboration.

Knowing more about your YouTube subscribers gives you more opportunities to diversify your content and attract more subscribers.

To see who subscribed to your YouTube channel, go to YouTube studio on a desktop browser – Recent subscribers.

Click on “See All” and have a look at your subscribers!


Can YouTube creators see who unsubscribed to their channels?

No, they can’t.

They also won’t receive any notification that someone unsubscribed from their channel.

They might notice that people unsubscribed when they look at the subscriber count.

However, if they’re using third-party tools to track their subscribers, they might receive notifications about this.

By default, though, YouTube doesn’t let YouTube creators see who unsubscribed.

Even if that was the case, nothing could happen to you. You can subscribe and unsubscribe to any channel whenever you want to.

Unsubscribing to a channel doesn’t mean you can’t subscribe back a few seconds later.

Why is my YouTube subscriber count stuck?

If you’ve recently hit 300 subscribers, YouTube might freeze your subscriber count for a while.

The 300-sub count is a minimum limit where YouTube starts looking at the quality view count.

They want to know whether those views are organic or not.

Another reason might be that YouTube has noticed suspicious actions from your account.

They might freeze your account while they investigate more thoroughly.

If you’re found guilty of anything, they’ll give you a notification and either demonetize your video or close your channel.

Either way, YouTube occasionally freezes your subscriber count if something seems fishy.

Lastly, your subscriber count might not move because no one subscribes to you.

If your subscriber count goes down, people unsubscribe from your channel instead.
