Fix YouTube Keeps Resetting to Light Mode:

Because of a bug that causes newly saved data on YouTube to be reset to the old one, YouTube keeps resetting to light mode even when set to dark mode. This data contains several settings, such as your appearance settings, language settings, autoplay video preference, and so on.

As a result, you may notice YouTube resetting your default language if you change it, or automatically playing the next video even if you turn off autoplay.

Even though YouTube claimed to have fixed the issue in 2020 and again in 2023, many users are still experiencing it. In my experience, it occurs when people open a new tab, close and re-open it’s browser, or restart their device.

Also, given that the issue occurs on multiple browsers, including Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, and Brave, as well as the number of updates rolled out for these browsers since the issue was first reported in 2019, the bug is most likely caused by YouTube.

YouTube Keeps Resetting to Light Mode

To stop YouTube from refreshing to light mode, expand YouTube on your web browser, press enter on the lock icon there next to the URL and select on 'Site Settings'. Then, click the 'Clear Data' button, followed by the 'Clear' button. Return to YouTube, click on your profile picture > Appearance, and then choose 'Dark theme'. After that, YouTube will remain in the dark mode.

Aside from that, there are four other ways to resolve the issue on your Windows, Mac, or mobile browsers, as well as the YouTube app.

Let's go over them one by one.

1. Delete YouTube Saved Data

To prevent YouTube from resetting to light mode, cleared the old saved data in my browser and then reloaded the YouTube tab. Immediately returned it to the dark theme, and it has not returned to the light mode theme since.

2. Utilize Dark Mode in Conjunction with the Device Theme

Another way to prevent YouTube from reverting to light mode is to use your device's theme to force it to dark mode. Most devices have a built-in dark mode feature that you can use across all of your apps, which can override app-specific dark mode features like YouTube's.

When you enable device-wide dark mode on your device (Windows, Mac, Android, or iPhone) and set the YouTube appearance settings to 'Use device theme,' it will no longer switch back to light mode.

3. Make Use of the YouTube Dark Mode Browser Extension.

If YouTube keeps reverting to light mode, you can fix it by installing a YouTube dark mode browser extension. This is one of the best people have seen on the Google Chrome extension store, and the reviews speak for themselves.

This extension modifies a cookie to enable YouTube's dark theme and also uses a script to change the colour scheme to dark mode.

4. Verify that Your Account is Still Signed In.

If you set your YouTube to dark mode directly under the appearance settings on your profile, you should be aware that this dark mode is tied to your account and is only enabled on it.

In other words, you are not generally setting YouTube web or YouTube app to dark mode by doing so. When you sign in to your own Google account, you are telling YouTube to go into dark mode.

As a result, if you log out of your account or sign in to another account that is not set to dark mode, YouTube will revert to light mode by default.

5. Check that Your Internet Explorer is up to Date.

Another thing you can do to prevent YouTube from reverting to light mode is to keep your browser up to date. Check if you have the most recent version of your browser, and if not, update it from the Play Store or Apple Store.

To summarise

If you like it, you can enjoy using your apps in dark mode. Use it on every app on my phone and computer that supports dark mode. It's even a device-wide feature on my phone and computer.
