Sometimes our videos aren't meant to be searchable by anyone on the internet.  This video demonstrates how to publish an unlisted video to share with specific audiences or on selected social media platforms.

Step by step instructions:

Step 1
Select the thumbnail of the draft video that you wish to use.

Step 2
Select the Publish button that appears at the bottom of the screen.

Step 3
Press the top left button and select Keep Unlisted.

Step 4
This will tick the 'Keep Unlisted' option

Step 5
Then press Publish one last time. Your video is published and is now ready to share with your intended audience or on your selected platform.

Step 6
Keeping a video unlisted means it will be kept private on YouTube. Audiences can not search for this video; they can only see it when you share it via text, email or social media platforms.
