Third party extensions subscribing you to channels without your permission

Some Chrome extensions may subscribe you to channels without your permission. There are some third party extensions that unsubscribe you from channels. These are not official extensions from the Chrome Store and this behavior violates Chrome Web Store Terms of Service.

You may be experiencing this issue if:

  • You see notifications for videos and channels that you don’t remember subscribing to.
  • You see notifications for videos and channels that you have unsubscribed from.

Please be aware when downloading apps or extensions from outside the Chrome Web Store. If you believe that a violative app came from the Chrome Web Store, report it to Chrome
