How to Unsubscribe From all YouTube Channels

If you enjoy a creator’s content, subscribing to their YouTube channel ensures you receive all their latest updates. Whenever the channel uploads a new video, you’ll get a notification. However, over time, your subscription list may grow and clutter your YouTube feed if you subscribe to too many channels. Luckily, you can always unsubscribe from these channels. But what if you want to start fresh and unfollow all the YouTube channels you currently follow? Although YouTube doesn’t offer an “unsubscribe from all” option, there are some workarounds you can try.

In this guide, I’ll walk you through the process of unsubscribing from all YouTube channels to rebuild your subscription list from scratch without having to delete your YouTube account.

Can You Unsubscribe from All YouTube Channels Using the YouTube App?

Unfortunately, the YouTube app doesn’t provide a way to unsubscribe from multiple channels at once. However, unsubscribing from individual channels is still simple.

First, open the YouTube app and go to the Subscriptions tab. Find the channel you want to remove from your list. Next to the channel name, you’ll see a button labeled Subscribed. Tap this button, and a confirmation prompt will appear. Choose Unsubscribe to finalize your action. Repeat these steps for each channel you no longer want to follow.

How to Unsubscribe From All YouTube Channels

If you only have a few unwanted channels in your subscription list, you can manually remove them with a few clicks. Alternatively, you can block these YouTube channels. However, if there are too many channels to unsubscribe from, the task can become frustrating. Thankfully, there are two ways to automate the process in such cases.

You can use a browser extension or a custom script in the browser’s Inspect Element tool.

Using a Browser Extension

  1. Go to the Automa extension page on the Chrome Web Store.
  2. Click on Add to (browser name).
  3. Press the Add extension button.
  4. Now, go to the YouTube mass unsubscribe workflow page on Automa.
  5. Click the Add to Extension button in the bottom left.
  6. Select OK from the pop-up to confirm.
  7. It will redirect you to the Automa workflows page. Press the Execute button (play icon) in the top-right corner.

Using the Inspect Element Tool

  1. Log into your YouTube account in your browser and click Subscriptions.
  2. Select Manage in the top-right corner.
  3. Right-click on an empty area on the page and select Inspect.
  4. Click the Console tab in the upper menu and scroll to the bottom of the tab.
  5. Paste the code mentioned below and hit Enter.

* YouTube bulk unsubscribe function.

* Wrapping this in an Immediately Invoked Function Expression (IIFE) for browser compatibility.

(async function iife()

// This is the time delay after which the “unsubscribe” button is “clicked”; Change it as needed


* Delay runner. Wraps `setTimeout` so it can be `await`ed on.

var runAfterDelay = (fn, delay) => new Promise((resolve, reject) =>

// Get the channel list; this can be considered a row in the page.

var channels = Array.from(document.getElementsByTagName(`ytd-channel-renderer`))

for (const channel of channels)

// Get the subscribe button and trigger a “click”

// Get the dialog container…

// and find the confirm button…

The script will execute the action and remove each YouTube channel one at a time. Let it continue until all of your YouTube channels are unsubscribed.

If the script gets stuck and stops unsubscribing from channels, refresh the page and run it again.

Get Rid of Unwanted YouTube Channels

That’s how you can get rid of all YouTube channels at once and start fresh with a clean subscription list. Automating the process will save you time compared to manually selecting and unsubscribing from each channel one by one.

If you remove all your subscribed channels because you plan to delete your account, remember to cancel your YouTube Premium subscription if you have one.
