How to Hide and Delete your YouTube Channel

Delete Your Youtube Account

YouTube Channel is one of the good sources of making money online with videos. Each and every video we come across on YouTube is uploaded through a YouTube Channel.

Users log in to their Google Account and upload their videos to YouTube. Depending on the views of the Videos, Google pays you.

How to Hide and Delete Your YouTube Channel

There are people who generally try to create a Channel and can’t able to delete them. If you don’t want to keep your presence on YouTube anymore, you can delete your YouTube channel.

People generally mix two notions like YouTube Channel and Account. For your kind information, there’s no such a thing as YouTube Account, in fact, you need Google Account to create a YouTube Channel.

You sign up for a Google account to use YouTube. Google account is like an umbrella account for different Google services like Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive, Calendar, AdWords, Wallet, etc.

So you can delete YouTube channels and thus, quit YouTube. Keep in mind that if you delete your Google account, you’ll lose access to ALL Google services. So, delete only your YouTube Channel.

If you opt to delete the YouTube channel, it will permanently delete your content, including videos, comments, messages, playlists, and history.
