What To Do If Your YouTube Channel Gets Terminated

Did your YouTube channel get terminated? When channels get terminated, creators receive immediate notification, with the appropriate reason for the termination. If you think that your YouTube channel has been wrongfully terminated, here’s how to appeal the action.

Appeal channel termination

  1. Fill the appeal form.
  2. Enter all the relevant information such as your channel ID, counter-argument for the termination, etc.
  3. If your channel was terminated due to a wrongful copyright violation, you can file a counter-notification.
  4. Again, make sure that you provide as much information as possible to expedite the process.
  5. Do NOT submit multiple appeals simultaneously. While you may feel impatient to recover your channel, this can only delay the process.

Other actions

  1. If you still have access to YouTube Studio, download all your videos.
  2. Let your fans know about the issue via other social media platforms.
  3. Create a backup channel and start posting videos there.
  4. Announce the backup channel on social media.
  5. Post your problem on Twitter or Reddit. YouTube Trusted Flaggers may contact you and help you recover your channel.

YouTube channel terminations are rare. YouTube usually has legitimate reasons for the termination. Generally, channels can get terminated for community guidelines violations and/or copyright violations. Always keep your content in compliance with YouTube’s guidelines to avoid such situations.
