With more than 122 million users accessing YouTube daily, the video streaming service has been an undisputed winner. However, every once in a while, a YouTube channel posts inappropriate content or something you might not like. If you understand what we are saying, we are sailing in the same boat.

In this post, we will discuss how to block YouTube channels.

Best Ways to Block YouTube Channels

If you don’t want to get recommendations from a specific channel in your YouTube feed, this method works for you. Here we will discuss how to block YourChannel from the web & phone.

Once the channel is blocked, you cannot unblock it individually. You can do this only when you are okay unblocking all blocked YouTube channels.
