How to unsubscribe from a YouTube channel on a computer or mobile device

There are millions upon millions of videos posted on YouTube, so finding content you like can sometimes feel like looking for that needle in the haystack. You can save yourself time wasted browsing in vain by subscribing to YouTube channels – accounts, in other words – that regularly feature the type of content you enjoy.

But any account can change, starting to share videos you'd rather not see. Or your own use of YouTube might change and you may simply wish to be served less content.

In either case, it's easy to unsubscribe from a YouTube channel from a computer or the YouTube mobile app for iPhone and Android.
