TubeBuddy is a partner with YouTube. We use their API to make a lot of what is possible in TubeBuddy... well... possible!

YouTube has a document that shows what they allow us to do with their API:

In order to make sure TubeBuddy, and other partners are using the YouTube API correctly, YouTube gives brands what is called a "YouTube API Compliance Audit."

This is where YouTube audits TubeBuddy to make sure using our tools won't get you in trouble. It's a way for keeping all of their partners and our users safe.

Sometimes in an audit YouTube asks us to make changes. DO NOT WORRY! This is normal and a part of the process. Most of these changes are minor, such as renaming a feature so it's more clear.

You can check the changes in TubeBuddy Patch Notes for what changes we have made in general, or due to YouTube API Compliance:
