How to permanently remove or temporarily disable your YouTube channel

If you still have awkward high school videos on your YouTube page, or you don’t need the channel anymore. Regardless of the cause, deleting your YouTube channel is easy and convenient.

Please keep in mind that deleting your channel would also remove all of your images, comments, playlists, votes, and other material. And once you’ve deleted your password, all of your data is permanently lost; there’s no way to get it back.

If you want a less permanent solution, you can cover your channel, making everything on your account private to all but you. Only your responses and comments will be deleted forever. You can still make your channel public again by filling out a form if it is secret.

  • Using any web browser, you can permanently remove your YouTube channel from the account settings menu.
  • If you don’t want to delete your channel, you can cover it instead, making it inaccessible to anyone but you.
  • A YouTube channel can’t be restored after it’s been removed, but a secret channel can be made public again at any time.
