Block contacts

When you block a YouTube contact, they will not be able to share videos or chat with you on YouTube. This will also block the contact from seeing or commenting on content you've posted, and block the contact in some other Google products and services.     

Block contacts

  1. Sign in to YouTube.
  2. Go to the Activity tab Notifications.
  3. Tap Shared.
  4. Tap View contacts.
  5. Select a Contact and a small window will show at the bottom of your screen.
  6. Select Block.

Users you block on other Google products will also be unable to comment on your videos and send you messages.

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

Note that blocking a user doesn't delete comments that the user has already posted. Learn more about deleting comments.
