How to Block a YouTube Channel (On Desktop & Mobile)

YouTube is a great platform and everyone loves to watch videos on YouTube using their desktop and mobile. But, sometimes you maybe need to prevent seeing some of the people present in your comments section on your videos.

On YouTube, the best way to handle this situation is by blocking the user and it prevents them from being able to comment on your content again and again.

So, here’s how to block someone else’s YouTube channel on your computer or mobile device, step-by-step!
