An unlisted video does not appear in the video listing on the homepage of your video website. It is not searchable for those arriving on your video website homepage. However, you can share a link to an unlisted video with a viewer, and they will be able to navigate to your other videos through your video website homepage, and also access search and any other pages on your site.
This setting is useful for making a video available via a link to only the people you share it with, however, it’s important to keep in mind that there is no technical mechanism that might prevent someone from sharing that link with other people.
How to Make Your Video Unlisted
Open the video in question and find the ‘Video Website Visibility’ field. Open the dropdown menu and select “Do NOT list this video on my video website”
NOTE: An unlisted video could still be indexed by search engines. You can read more about how to prevent search engines from indexing your videos here.
