Limited features for certain videos

Hate speech is not allowed on YouTube. We remove content promoting violence or hatred against individuals or groups based on certain attributes. YouTube also doesn’t allow content intended to praise, promote, or aid violent criminal organizations.

Content that doesn’t violate our policies, but is close to the removal line/could be offensive to some viewers, may have some features turned off.

Content will remain available on YouTube, but the watch page will no longer have:

  • Comments
  • Suggested videos
  • Likes

The watch page will also be placed behind a warning message. These videos are also not eligible for ads. Having features turned off will not add a strike to your channel.

If one of your videos has features turned off, we'll send an email to tell you. You can appeal the decision directly from a link in the email or by following the appeals process.
