How To Remove Subscribers On YouTube
July 19th, 2023 by Terri Pinyerd

Unfortunately, there is no way to remove subscribers on YouTube, however you can block a user in order to limit their interaction on your content.


How to Block a Subscriber on YouTube


Currently, there is no way to delete subscribers on YouTube but if you want to limit interactions with a specific user you can block the subscriber's channel.


You can do this by following the steps below:


  1. Visit the subscriber's YouTube channel by clicking on their name in your subscribers list or on a comment they left.

  2. Click on the About tab.

  3. Click the Flag icon and select Block user


Once a subscriber is blocked, they will be unable to interact with you via comments or DM's. However, they can still view your content and subscribe to your channel.


If you don't want to remove your subscribers but want to limit how they can interact with your content, there are a few options.


How To Set Video Comments to Approval Only


You can set your video comments to "approval only" to manage the kind of comments that appear under your videos in your video's advanced settings. This allows you to review and approve comments before they are visible to the public.


Here's how to change your video comment settings:


  1. Visit YouTube Studio

  2. Click Content in the left-hand menu

  3. Find the video you want to change settings for & click the pencil icon (details)

  4. Scroll down and click Comments and ratings

  5. Select Hold all comments for review

  6. Click Save


How To Make Your Subscribers List Private


Another step you can take is to make your subscriptions private. This option, located in your YouTube settings, prevents others from seeing your channel's active subscribers.


You can learn how to hide subscribers here. 


How To Report A User


In cases of serious harassment or inappropriate behavior, you have the option to report the user to YouTube. This helps the platform maintain a safe and respectful community.

Here's how to report a YouTube user:


  1. Visit the page of the user you want to report

  2. Click on the About tab

  3. Click on the flag icon

  4. Select Report User and the reason that best fits the situation

  5. Click Submit


IMPORTANT: The Report feature should only be used for situations that violate YouTube's community guidelines. Repeatedly reporting users for general negative comments (that are not abusive) could result in your own channel being flagged.
