Why does YouTube recommend me videos when I am not signed in?

    I am not signed into YouTube but for some reason the app remembers what I watch and makes recommendations. How do I clear the cache? I can't find an option to clear viewing history, you can only clear your cache when you are signed in with a user name.

    Before I get weird jokes about what I'm watching, it can be anything. Like I watch a Michael Jordan highlight video and now I get 50 NBA recommendations. I want to be able to see the regular YouTube popular recommendations on a dailly basis.

    It is a google product and google doesn't need you to be signed in to know who you are... :eek:

    The only workaround I can figure out so far is I have to delete the entire app. It is a problem because my wife can be watching a video about puppies and then I get 50 puppy video recommendations.

    I like to view the regular popular recommendations because there is always something interesting to watch.

    Google is scary that way. That's one of the reasons I chose iOS over Android. Apple knows what I do too, but they aren't going to sell that data to other people.
