Today i have tried to put my youtube account on hide mode and i can not see it anywhere anymore

Hello, thank you for using Howly.
Let's try to turn on your YouTube channel:


  1. Sign in to YouTube.
  2. Go to create a channel and fill out the form. This action will restore your YouTube channel.
  3. In the form, don't click "To use a business or other name, click here." This action will create a channel
    instead of restoring your hidden channel.
  4. After you re-create your public channel, you can make your videos and playlists viewable in the Videos page.

I am sorry, what is it?
I thought you were unable to get to your Youtube channel

Customer Replay

Could you send me a screenshot of what you see in your Settings, Account tab?

Customer Replay

Yes, the chat only allows uploading graphic files like JPG, PNG
Do you have a Brand Account on Youtube?

Then, your account should be restored via the New Account route I initially linked to you
Please carry out the following steps:

when i put the channel on hide mode it was standing there that i can unhide it whenever i want but its so strange that i can not find it at all ... now. and even when it would have been that i have deleted it i guess at least an email would have been send that the channel was deleted right?

  1. Open the link below (creating a new account)
  2. Fill out the form and click Create Channel.
    If the form suggests "To use a business or other name, click here", don't click on that. This action will create a channel instead of restoring your hidden channel.
