Vimeo is an online video platform, like YouTube, that allows users to upload and share videos with people worldwide.
While the platforms share a lot in common, one of the most significant differences between them is their privacy settings. You can set a video private on YouTube, making it so only people with a direct link can view it.
But with Vimeo, you have a few more options. It’s easy to change your video’s privacy settings so that only you can see it, but you can also password protect your video, granting access to the small group of people you’ve shared it with. That’s a feature YouTube doesn’t have.
But turning a video to private or password protecting it isn’t always enough. When you’re looking for a more permanent solution for managing your videos, you can also delete them altogether. Here’s how to do it on Vimeo.
