Youtube is sucks! At least when you subscribed to a channel and it soon will be sending dozens of updates to your email, which actually not even useful. They bombarded your email account with notifications such as comments, likes, reply, and activity on the subscribed channel. I personally dubb it as junk mail since I was rarely read it and just fulfilling inbox solely.
By default, those (unwanted) emails are expected to re-engage people go back to the video page which basically increase the revenue of Youtube. It’s okay for me since it was the best place to found an adorable puppies video. Yet, controling what emails should be received is highly recommended avoid incoming unnecessary mail.
So, how to disable Youtube’s mail notifications?
Stop Youtube from Sending Email Update (Desktop Browser)
Desktop browser is still the best platform to enjoy videos on Youtube. Bigger screen, quicker buffer, and tons of features making some people keep watching on the computer screen instead of mobile phone. Also, the configuration options are wider. Some settings even only available on PC. Customizing email notifications from this device are extremely flexible.
Go to Youtube, sign in to your account, click the profile picture on the upper-right corner of the page, then select Settings.
Click the Notifications selection.
In order to prevent any incoming video updates from Youtube, make sure you follow these configurations. You may able to keep some updates turned on.
Stop Youtube from Sending Email Update (Mobile App)
Youtube’s mobile app is capable to set email notifications off, including comments, subscriptions, recommended videos, and activity on other channels. In addition, the app is allowing you to disable annoying push notification on Android.
Run Youtube app on a mobile device, then tap the profile picture of your account.
Next, go to Settings.
Select the Notifications options.
From here, you can customize whichever notifications should active or disabled. If you want to disable all email and mobile notifications, switch off entire configurations.
Stop Youtube from Sending Email Update (Mobile Browser)
Albeit Youtube app has reached billions of user, some people might tend to use the mobile version of Youtube right on the browser. That’s still relevant in case rarely watching videos through the app and more likely to watch Youtube’s video which embedded on the website page. I inform you that the mobile version has less configurable options although it may enough to unsubscribe email notifications.
Visit Youtube on the mobile browser app and make sure you are signed in. Next, tap the three-vertical dots icon that located next to search icon.
Tap on Email options.
Turn off any email updates you don’t want to see anymore.
Even if you turned off entire mail update, Youtube will keep sending important notifications, like security or services update. But, those kinds of email is less frequent rather than channel activities. Put said, about once every month.
In addition, most email services are allowing their users to unsubscribe directly from the mail message. However, it may not really effective since you need to unsubscribe for each kind of mail.
So, that’s how to stop Youtube from sending email update of channel activity. Press the love button if you found this useful! Also, follow this blog on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ for more helpful tutorials.
