    Hi all, my partner recently discovered an obscure and unexplained search in our disable daughters YouTube search engine, on her iPad.
    She is unable to type in the sequence of numbers and letters that make up the search and the words you have to type in, in order for the search engine to predict the sequence that we found in the search engine is too specific for our daughter to have composed it.
    Has anyone ever experienced anything similar? How could this happen without someone actually typing it into the search engine? is there any way of finding out when the search was performed?
    We're really concerned and any insight and/or advice that anyone can give us would be greatly appreciated!
    Thank you

    There is voice search. If you're daughter is capable of saying something clearly, she only has to tap the microphone to the right of the search field and speak. That's a fairly new feature. Might take a few tries to get the microphone tapped, or maybe it was tapped by accident.

    Can't think of anything else off the top of my head.

    Selecting a YT link in Safari or Mail will open it in the YT app, if it's installed.
