After selecting “Manage” in the previous step, you’ll see your Subscriptions page, a list of all the channels you’re currently subscribed to.

To unsubscribe from or delete a subscription, click on the “Subscribed” button next to a subscribed channel.

Do this for any subscription you want to delete from your YouTube account. This will cancel your subscription to that channel, so you won’t receive any updates about new videos from those channels.

Happy now? You’re welcome!

3. Select “Manage” in the top-right corner

That’s it, really! You’ve now learned how to unsubscribe from YouTube channels on a mobile and computer!

Conclusion

In short, you can unsubscribe from or delete, if that’s how you want to put it, YouTube channels on both mobile and a computer by going to “Subscriptions” – “Manage” – Unsubscribe.

It’s more or less the same thing whether you’re on a mobile or computer. The YouTubers won’t know you’ve unsubscribed from their channels either.

They won’t receive a notification if you do that.
