How to Delete Your YouTube Channel


YouTube has been operating for about two decades at this point.. And if you’ve been around since the beginning, it’s possible that your channel has some humiliating old videos that you don’t want anyone to view. Whatever the cause, it doesn’t take much work to deactivate a YouTube channel. When you delete your YouTube channel, you also delete all of your videos, comments, playlists, and other content. And after you’ve deleted your account, you’ll lose access to all of your previous data, which will be lost forever.

In the event that you desire a less permanent option, you may also choose to conceal your channel, which will make everything on your account private to everyone else but you. Your private channel can be made public again at any time, but all of your comments and responses will be permanently removed.

Here’s how to either permanently remove or temporarily conceal your YouTube channel.

What Happens When You Delete Your YouTube Channel

When you deactivate your YouTube channel, all of your posted videos, comments, messages, playlists, and history are removed from the site. This does not, however, result in the deletion of your YouTube (Google) account.

YouTube will also terminate your YouTube TV, YouTube Premium, and any channel membership subscriptions that you may have had with the company. You will be allowed to continue to utilize these subscriptions until the end of your paying cycle has been reached.

It is possible that thumbnails from your channel’s videos will continue to surface in some places on YouTube. This is due to the fact that YouTube will require some time to completely remove all of your content off the site. The analytical data for your channel will continue to be included in YouTube Analytics, but it will no longer be associated with your specific channel.
