Blocking users

Blocking someone on YouTube will stop them from making comments on your videos or Channel, and they won’t be able to contact you through private messages either.

If you feel that you’re being bullied or harassed by someone, please see more information on how to protect yourself from Bullying and Harassment.

Here’s how to block someone on YouTube

  1. Visit their Channel page, which should have a URL similar to www.youtube.com/user/NAME
  2. On their “About” tab, click the flag icon
  3. Click Block User

You can also block someone through your Address Book. If the person you’re trying to block is one of your contacts, select the tickbox next to their name and click the Block button. If they’re not in your Contacts, you can add them as a contact by clicking the Add New button.
