How to Remove Google Plus from a YouTube Account

by C. Taylor

If you chose to connect your old YouTube account's channel with a Google Plus profile or page, you have the option to remove that connection. However, newly created channels that are linked to a Google Plus page, rather than a profile, have a 14-day window to remove the connection before it becomes permanent. If your channel does not have a YouTube username associated with it or the 14-day grace period has expired, you cannot remove Google Plus from the account.

Step 1

Log in to your YouTube account. If the channel is linked with a Google Plus page, log in using the linked Google account.

Step 2

Click your username and select "YouTube Settings." If you have multiple channels associated with the Google account, click "Switch Account" and select the appropriate channel before entering YouTube Settings.

Step 3

Click the "...Disconnect Google+" link that appears beneath your email address.

Click "OK" to confirm your selection.
