Do you have multiple YouTube channels and don’t use them anymore?
If you have channels that you don’t need, you may get in the way of management.
In fact, you can easily delete the channels you no longer use!
In this article, I will explain how to delete a YouTube channel and points to note before deleting it.
What is YouTube channel deletion?
This means that you will leave your YouTube account ( the YouTube service of your Google account) and delete only certain channels that you own.
Therefore, only the content such as videos, comments, messages, playlists, history, etc. in the deleted channel will be permanently deleted.
Precautions before deleting a YouTube channel
Before deleting a YouTube channel, let’s check the notes first.
Channel deletion permanently deletes uploaded videos, subscribers, channels you have subscribed to, comments, messages, playlists, browsing history, and other content.
Therefore, let’s think for yourself whether it is a situation where all of them can disappear.
If you delete it, you cannot restore the channel, so be careful.
