Go to youtube website see its logo in top left corner. 'IN' is shown as superscript to logo. I tried searching on Google and Wikipedia but couldn't find any information.


  • Its not exactly clear what you are talking about. Can you provide a screenshot of the logo in question. Just link to the image and somebody will add it to your question. – Ramhound Aug 5 '13 at 14:45

Your country setting is set to India. (Country settings can be independent from your physical location. I'm physically in US now but my country setting is Japan, and I see "JP" next to the logo.)

Scroll to the bottom of the site and you will see a menu like this: Youtube menu at bottom

In your case, the country must be set to India. If you don't want it to be, change that to worldwide.

It refers to country specific YouTube sites. I’m in Singapore, so it says SG.

  • I am in USA but still it is showing me that. – user2651951 Aug 5 '13 at 15:16

YouTube India.


“IN” means country specific YouTube for India, and could have country specific content.

  • I am guessing you have taken your laptop from India to there, your browser and/or OS is set with Indian settings/time zone. either your browser or OS is detecting that and directing you to the default country specific YouTube site. I could further guess your using chrome browser (or even firefox perhaps) and your google account is set for India. – Sid5427 Aug 5 '13 at 22:34
