Closing your YouTube account will permanently delete your data including videos, messages, comments, and your channel. You will not be able to open a new account with the same username.
If you still wish to close your YouTube account, here's how:
- Make sure you're signed into account you want to delete.
- Go to your advanced account settings.
- Click Close Account. You'll be asked to re-enter your sign-in details to confirm that you want to delete your account.
You may still see thumbnails of your videos on the site as it takes time to update; they will be removed shortly.
