Delete YouTube channel
Closing your YouTube channel will permanently delete your data including videos, messages, comments, and your channel. You will not be able to open a new channel with the same URL.
You don't need a channel to sign in to YouTube with your Google Account. You'll still be able to sign in and use YouTube with no public presence.
Here's how to delete your YouTube channel:
- Make sure you're signed in to the channel you want to delete.
- Go to your advanced account settings.
- Click Delete channel. You'll be asked to re-enter your sign-in details to confirm that you want to delete your channel.
You may still see thumbnails of your videos on the site as it takes time to update; they will be removed shortly.
