YouTube may suspend your YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium membership if you have been away from the country where you purchased your membership for more than six months.
After 5 months of being away from the country where you purchased YouTube Premium or YouTube Music Premium, you’ll be notified that your paid membership is going to be suspended unless you sign in from that country again. After six months of being away, YouTube will automatically suspend your paid membership and your paid membership benefits will no longer apply.
If you are a family plan manager, all of the members on your family plan will also lose their paid membership benefits when your account is suspended. If you are an individual on a family plan that you do not manage, your suspended membership will not impact other members on the same family plan.
There are several options for managing a suspended account:
- Return to your home location and resume your membership.
- Cancel your membership.
- Take no action - if your account is suspended and remains in that state for six months, we will cancel your paid membership for you. However, you may still be billed for your membership during these six months if you take no action. Please see below for details on how your billing will be impacted.
