How to block a YouTube channel/user (method 2)

This method works for channels without content (channels that don't contain information and videos).

These are usually channels that are just created (and are new), channels only created for watching videos and commenting on videos, or channels that are made quickly by spammers and internet trolls to spam or harass people.

1. Open your web browser.

2. Go to YouTube.

3. Log in to YouTube (if you're not already logged in).

4. Go to the channel (profile) of the user you want to block.

5. Click just below the banner (cover) of the channel on the flag icon (next to the SUBSCRIBE button).
