YouTube is a search engine for videos. No matter which topic or subject you want to learn about, simply do a YouTube search and you will be able to find a video about it. That’s how powerful and optimized it is.

However, with great power and ease of accessibility comes recommendations and suggestions about videos and channels that we don’t want to watch or never want them to interact with our channel like leaving a comment. The reason for that could be any but we are not here to discuss that. We have created this content to help you guide you on how to block YouTube channels.

There are two ways to block YouTube channels and we have discussed both in this blog post. Now depending on what you want to achieve and why you want to block a YouTube channel, you may want to follow the steps for any one of the methods.

  1. Block a channel from appearing in your YouTube feeds.
  2. Block a channel from commenting on your YouTube videos.

How to Block a Channel from Appearing in your YouTube Feeds

Whether you are on a desktop site or using the YouTube mobile app, while scrolling through your feeds you will come across tons of videos that are being recommended to you based on the videos you have already watched, recent searches, and interests.

Although you are not subscribed to those channels but random videos will continue to pop up in your feeds, which in most cases are irrelevant, and we have no interest in watching them let alone clicking on it or subscribing to that channel.

Here is what you need to do to block channels from cluttering your feeds:

Steps for YouTube Mobile Users:

If you are on a YouTube mobile version, i.e. Android or iOS then follow these steps:

  1. On the YouTube app, while scrolling through your feeds, whenever a video from a channel that you find irrelevant appears.
  2. Just below the video thumbnail, there will be a menu button denoted by three vertical dots. Tap that.
  3. A popup menu will appear, choose the option that says, “Don’t recommend this channel.”

This will delete the recommendation and will completely block that specific channel and its videos from appearing in your feeds.

If you are on a YouTube desktop version then follow these steps, (the steps are almost similar to that of YouTube mobile):

  1. On the YouTube homepage, while scrolling through your feeds, find a video from a channel that you find irrelevant.
  2. Just below the video thumbnail, you will find a menu button denoted by three vertical dots. Click that.
  3. A menu will pop up, choose the option that says, “Don’t recommend this channel.”

This will completely block the selected channel and its videos from appearing in your feeds or being recommended by YouTube.

How to Block a Channel from Commenting on your YouTube Videos

Here is what you can do to block channels from commenting on your YouTube videos:

Steps for YouTube Mobile Users:

If you are on a YouTube mobile version, i.e. Android or iOS then follow these steps:

  1. Launch YouTube mobile app, then using the search bar search for the channel you want to block.
  2. Open their channel.
  3. In the top-right corner, you will find a menu button with three vertical dots. Tap it.
  4. A popup menu will appear, tap the “Block user” option to completely block that user from commenting on your channel.

Now, this user or channel will not be able to comment on your videos.

Steps for YouTube Web Browser Users:

If you are on a YouTube desktop version then follow these steps, (the steps are almost identical to that of YouTube mobile):

  1. Using your favorite web browser, open the YouTube homepage.
  2. Search for the channel or user you want to block and then click on their profile picture or their channel name to access their homepage.
  3. From the tabs given at the top, find and click on the “About” tab.
  4. Right under the stats, you will see a flag icon so click that and from the popup menu click on the “Block user” option.
  5. A message may appear asking for confirmation if you want to block the channel. Simply click the “Submit” button.

That is all you need to do to block YouTube channels. And the process is so simple that it takes no more than three minutes.
