    It's just what I was looking for. There is a totally unbearable guy with various hateful channels. I don't know why there are people who think they can do whatever they want with YouTube. Many thanks.

      oh, we're the same, only my problem is with a guy who calls himself sesal

    This option blocks the one that comes out as a suggestion, but if I look for it if its videos come out, right?
    What happens is that my brother, a little 6 years old, sees a guy who really is a foul-mouthed man and says a lot of rudeness, and I don't want him to keep watching those videos. How can I definitively block it so that even looking for it, it comes out in the search?

      Hello, sorry… Did you find a way that your little brother can no longer watch videos of that type? Exactly the same thing happens to me, my little 6-year-old brother watches videos that are not good at all for his age and I can't find a way for those videos not to appear

    You tube only gives google plerfiles at the moment, the method does not work, since those profiles do not have the possibility of blocking.

      If my nephew keeps watching videos of a certain Fernandofloo and he has me rotten because later he talks like that and it's ugly, nothing happens, the videos continue to appear

    2.    Life said

      Good night, the same thing happens to me with my daughter, but I already followed the instructions, the first thing you have to do is enter the channel you want to block. For example, this is the page that I blocked

      where it says more information you click and there appears the flag where they give you the option to block user

    The happy little flag does not appear ... and I also want to block it because my 9-year-old son watches some videos that do not seem appropriate for his age ... of a very vulgar type ... anyone know how ?? Thank you.

    1.    Antonio said

      In order for the flag to appear, you must first open a session on YouTube; The other option is to use the restricted mode, you have to go to the bottom of the YouTube page, check the restricted mode box Yes and give it save, as it points out there, it is not infallible but if it blocks videos considered inappropriate (sex, rude vocabulary, etc.,).

    as I do to block this vulgar guy, my 9 year old son also spends all his time watching these videos, which are not didactic or educational at all.

  6.   Viqui said

    HELLO THANKS BUT I FOLLOWED THE STEPS AND REALIZED THAT A LONG AGO I HAD ALREADY BLOCKED THE USER THAT I FUNDAMENTALLY DO NOT WANT TO APPEAR FOR MY YOUNGER SON OSEA I APPEARED DIRECTLY WITH THE OPTION TO UNLOCK IT AND ALSO I SEE THAT IT IS NO USE AT ALL TIME THEY STILL APPEARED ... IT SEEMS THAT YOUTUBE IS NOT INTERESTED IN HELPING AT MENIS PARENTS OF MINORS TO REMOVE DANGEROUS CHANNELS FROM CIRCULATION….

  7.   Viqui said

    IF SOMEONE KNOWS AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO BLOCK A CHANNEL PLEASE NOTIFY IT IS TRSITE BECAUSE TIME PASSES BY RAISING CHILDREN AND THIS GUY, A YOUTUBER WHO DOES NOT THINK ABOUT ANYTHING THAT YOU IN MILLIONS OF CHILDREN, CONTAMINATES THE HEAD OF MY SON, YOU THAT DOES NOT ALLOW YOU TO SEE IT BUT THE LIMIT IS NOT SO EASY, FOR A TIME I ACHIEVED IT BUT ALL THE CHILDREN OF YOUR AGE WATCH IT THEN I SEE THAT BLOCKING THE CHANNEL WOULD END THE PROBLEM NOW MR. YOUTUBE: WHEN YOU WILL STOP BEING SO MONEY IN YEAR AND WILL IT SET REAL RULES OF HUMAN RESPECT ????

  8.   PAOLA said

    SIRBE OF SOMETHING TO DENOUNCE THE COMMENTS OF SOME PEOPLE…. I UPLOADED A VIDEO OF MY 9-YEAR-OLD SON WHERE HE BELIEVES HE IS A YOUTUBER BUT MALICIOUS COMMENTS APPEAR FROM PEOPLE WHO DO NOT EVEN UPLOAD VIDEOS ONLY DEDICATE TO BOTHER CHILDREN. AS "PANDA IS HAPPY", TREATS MY SON OF GAY AND ASKS HIM TO SHOW HIM THE SCROTUS, I ONLY READ THE COMMENTS BUT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE DEDICATED TO BOTHER SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM YOUTUBE.

    Thanks, but it doesn't work. It is already blocked but YouTube continues to offer my son the videos of this ill pedophile.

    The best option is to download healthy videos in a folder on the computer and disconnect the Internet that only come in our presence ... or put a password on the computer ...

    I recommend to everyone that after they block any channel also go to history and delete everything until the search history I hope it serves luck to all

  12.   Paulina said

    Thanks, I just did it on the computer, I hope it also worked on the PlayStation 3 game console, at home I will review it. The Annoying Orange channel has me flat, the games part, they are super violent and my 3-year-old son watches them by suggestion, I hope now they don't appear.

  13.   Jupiter said

    I searched and searched and in the end I completely blocked it from the firewall, it's a shame that YouTube is more and more full of apes screaming and ranting while recording themselves playing or being an idiot.
    Open toys, minecraft, eat bugs, clown, more minecraft ... and above all idotize our children and teach them bad vocabularies and ways to scratch a few pennies.

    I also need to block these guys' channels, they are very foul-mouthed, they are constantly saying vulgarities and my little boy, as he sees them playing video games, thinks that's normal. If someone knows how to block it on android, I would be very grateful if you could inform me, thank you.

    Hello .. I managed to block the channels that I don't want my children to see using an extension in google Chrome: videoblocker. They install it, then they go to YouTube and look for the channel they don't want to see, they right click with the mouse on the name of the channel and they click where it says "block videos from this channel". I hope it serves you! it really worked for me ..

    I WILL HELP YOU EVEN MORE, TAKE NOTE, TRY TO ACCESS THE CONFIGURATION OF YOUR ROUTER, MOST OF THE ROUTERS HAVE PARENTAL CONTROL, THEY BLOCK THE CHANNEL NAME AND THE CHANNEL WILL NOT BE SEEN ON ALL THEIR DEVICES

    1.    Fight said

      Interesting, block channels without restricted mode, I have no problem with fernanfloo, but with the regeton, I no longer use google chrome after the Alexa virus, now I only use Edge and it does not have the BlockSite extension (recommended for those who use chrome) but block from router ?? I notice when I get home, I know that from the Hosts file it is not possible and I think that from the windows firewall either, only these two permanently block YouTube

    this does not work I thought it was like that when I saw it but, that prevents the user from commenting on YOUR VIDEOS, it does not prevent you from seeing it

    it does not work, sasselandia does not block it, I do not know because any youtuber can be blocked but not sasselandia?

    This method does not work, what's more, I think that officially you can not block any YouTube channel, only comments are blocked, nothing more, YouTube itself tells you at the time of blocking. I suppose it would generate monetary losses for Google, the blocked YouTube channel is advertising that the user does not see, and advertising is money, so Google will never go against its own interests, which is a shame. There is a lot of content and channels that I would gladly block for the rest of my life, however, with the current form of blocking these contents will continue to appear to us.

    I AM BORED THAT YOUTUBE RECOMMENDS ME A STUPID CHANNEL CALLED "VISUALPOLITIK" WHICH IS FROM SPANISH RIGHTSHERS LAMECULOS FROM THE UNITED STATES, HOWEVER, DESPITE BLOCKING IT, IT APPEARS TO ME IN RECOMMENDED VIDEOS. IT SEEMS TO ME AN IMPOSITION TO CHANGE MY THOUGHT, REPEAT, GOOGLE USES THESE CHANNELS AS A WAY TO ADOCTRINATE, CURIOUSLY THE RIGHT CHANNELS DO NOT APPEAR RECOMMENDED LEFT CHANNELS FOR THEM TO SEE THEM.
