When Did I Subscribe to a YouTube Channel? How to find out using xxLuke

Subscribing to a YouTube channel is a great way to support your favorite content creators and make sure you never miss an upload. But sometimes, it’s hard to remember: when did I subscribe to a YouTube channel?

For many of us, it was probably years ago, and we might not even remember how or why we chose that particular channel. Maybe it was because we loved the videos, or maybe we just found the content creator to be relatable.

So take a moment to think back – when did you first subscribe to a YouTube channel? If you can’t remember when you subscribed to a particular channel, there are a few ways you can find out.

How To Find Out When Did I Subscribe To A YouTube Channel

If you want to find out when you first subscribed to a specific YouTube channel, you can use an external tool called xxluke.

But before that, you should check the privacy settings of your YouTube account and make sure your subscription list is public.

Make Your Subscription List Public

If your subscriptions are private, then you will not be able to use xxluke, as this third-party tool requires them to be public in order to retrieve your subscriptions.

Here’s how you can make your subscriptions public:

  1. Open YouTube and sign in to your account.
  2. On the top right corner of the screen, click on your profile picture.
  3. A drop-down menu will appear. Click on “Settings.”
  4. On the left sidebar, click on “Privacy.”
  5. Under “Privacy,” find the section called “Playlist and Subscriptions.”
  6. Make sure that the toggle next to “Keep all my subscriptions private” is turned off, as this option is enabled by default.
  7. Copy Your Channel URL

Next, go get the URL of the channel you want to check:

  1. Go to your YouTube account or to the channel you want to check.
  2. In the URL bar, copy the channel’s URL. It should look something like this: “”

Now that your privacy settings are updated, and you’ve copied the channel link, you can proceed to use xxluke to find out when you subscribed to the channel.

  1. Paste your channel link on the xxluke tool
  2. Click on this URL to visit the xxluke tool.
  3. Enter your YouTube ID or Paste the URL of your channel and click “Continue.”

The site will now show you a list of every channel that you’ve ever subscribed to on YouTube, along with the date that you first subscribed to each one.

This is a great way to see which channels you’ve been following for a long time and which ones you just subscribed to recently.

You might even be surprised at how long you’ve been subscribed to some of your favorite channels.

How to View All the Channels I Subscribed to on YouTube

If you want to see every channel that you’re currently subscribed to on YouTube, there’s a simple way to do it. Just follow these steps:

  1. Open up YouTube and make sure you’re signed in.
  2. On the home page, check out the left sidebar. Under “Library,” you should see a section called “Subscriptions.”
  3. Click on “Subscriptions,” and you’ll be taken to a page that shows all of the videos of the channel you’re currently subscribed to.
  4. To see the list of the channels you are subscribed to, click on “Manage” in the top right corner.
  5. You can now see all the channels you’re subscribed to. From here, you can click on any channel to view its videos or unsubscribe from any channel that you no longer want to follow.

This is a great way to take a trip down memory lane and see which channels you’ve been following for years and which ones you just subscribed to recently. You might even find some channels that you forgot you were subscribed to.
