5 ways to protect your YouTube channel from being hacked

5 ways to protect your YouTube channel from being hacked

It is not uncommon for anyone's YouTube channel to be hacked. Because YouTube channels are constantly being hacked. If you are the owner of a popular YouTube channel, you are not free from the possibility of hacking. Rather, the more popular your channel, the higher your risk.

Hackers usually don't hack a normal channel. They target popular channels, which have more subscribers and views. By hacking such channels, they put the channel owner in danger. Many hackers do it for fun, while some hackers hack for money.

Regardless of the hacker's purpose, you definitely don't want your popular channel to get hacked. So, it is your responsibility to protect your channel. Our duty is to inform you how you can protect your YouTube channel from hackers.


1. Set a strong password

Many of us use a very common password while opening an account. For example, some set up passwords with their mobile number, some with their birthday number, some with their boyfriend or girlfriend's name, etc. And this kind of password is very bad. Because hackers try to log into accounts with these first.

So, use a strong password to protect your YouTube channel from hackers. Learn how to create strong passwords for any platform including Facebook, YouTube and set passwords accordingly.

Never use the same password for different accounts. Set different passwords for each platform and write them down somewhere. It is best to take a note pad and save it to Google Drive.

2. Set up two-step verification

One of the most popular ways to protect any account is two-step verification. It is a two-tier security system which is basically set up with mobile number. Many people already know what two-step verification is and why to use it. For those in the know and those who don't, the first step to securing a YouTube channel is setting up two-step verification.

If a hacker tries to hack your YouTube channel after setting up two-step verification, he will never succeed. Because, every time he gives the password, even if it is correct, a code will be sent to your mobile via SMS. It is not possible for a hacker to know that code, since the code will come to your mobile. So, hacker can't input the code either, can't hack your channel. Rather, repeated attempts will log him out.

So, set up two-step verification to keep your YouTube channel safe.

3. Turn off multiple access

If you share access to your YouTube channel with multiple people, make sure to unfollow those who are no longer connected to your channel.

It is quite natural that you give account access to multiple people for proper management of your channel. But it's highly unusual that you've never blocked access to people who are no longer engaged with your channel.

Understandably, multiple people having access to a channel is extremely helpful in hacking. So, you should block everyone else's access today, especially those who are no longer working for your channel. Nor need to work.

4. Do not login from someone else's computer

If you have gone to a friend or relative's house, you can go, but do not login to your YouTube channel from any computer or smartphone there. Because, after logging into account from someone's device, we often forget to log out. If so, the device from which the login is made. It becomes easy for us to get access to our account.

5. Avoid clicking on any suspicious links

You may receive emails in your inbox telling you about winning a lottery or other good news. You may be told that click on the link below to get one million subscribers for free. Never click on any such email. Because, these are all phishing emails, techniques of hackers.
