Introduction to deleting subscribers on YouTube
Subscribers have opted to receive information, content, or services from an organization, typically via email or a web platform. Subscribers often receive exclusive offers and discounts and are the lifeblood of a successful online business.
YouTube allows users to manage their subscribers by allowing them to delete subscribers from their channels. It can be useful for removing spam accounts, blocking unwanted users, or simply decluttering your subscriber list. This guide will walk through the steps for deleting subscribers on YouTube.
Logging into your YouTube account
The first step in deleting YouTube subscribers is logging in to your account. If you have not logged in, go to YouTube.com and enter your email address and password. Once successfully logged in, it will take you to your YouTube homepage.
Note: Verify that you are logged into the correct account because only the channel you own or manage allows for subscriber deletion
Navigating to the Subscribers page
Once logged in, navigate to your channel page by clicking on your profile picture in the top right corner of the screen. On your channel page, click on the “Settings” button (it looks like a gear), then click on “Advanced” settings. In the advanced settings, scroll down to the “Subscribers” section. It will take you to the Subscribers page, where you can view a list of all the subscribers on your channel.
Note: You can also find the Subscriber page by visiting your channel and then clicking on the “subscribers” tab on the left side of the screen.
Finding and selecting the subscriber to be deleted
On the Subscribers page, you will see a list of all the subscribers on your channel. To find the subscriber you wish to delete, scroll through the list. Once you have found the subscriber, click the “Remove” button next to their name. A pop-up window will appear, asking you to confirm the deletion.
Note: Depending on the size of your subscriber list, you may need to use the search function to find the specific subscriber you want to delete quickly.
Confirming the deletion
After clicking the “Remove” button, a pop-up window will appear, asking you to confirm the deletion. Click on the “Delete” button to confirm the deletion of that subscriber. The subscriber will be removed from your list and can no longer access your channel.
Note: Once you delete a subscriber, they will not receive any notifications and will not be able to see your content anymore, but they can still re-subscribe to your channel if they wish to.
