How To Delete/Remove All Likes on YouTube

If you find the video interesting or informative, hit the Like button below. Similar calls to action appear in many YouTube videos and most of us hit the button to show appreciation. In time, the number of liked videos can reach proportions that are hard to navigate.

This is why deleting all or at least some of the likes on YouTube comes in handy. We’ve selected tried and tested methods to remove all the unnecessary likes on YouTube so don’t hesitate to give them a try. There is an extra method to help remove likes from channel feed and a bonus one for the brave readers.

Remove Likes on Desktop

Many users access YouTube on a desktop, which is why we’re kicking off with the desktop method. However, you can also easily delete likes on your smart device – which will be discussed later on.

1. Go to YouTube

Launch YouTube in a browser and sign in with your Google account.

2. Hit the “Hamburger” Icon

Clicking on the “hamburger” (three horizontal lines) icon brings up the menu on the left as shown in the image above.

3. Select Liked Videos

Click on Liked videos to preview all the likes on your YouTube account.

4. Choose a Video

Browse the Liked videos and place your cursor over the video that you wish to unlike.

5. Click the Three Vertical Dots

A pop-up menu appears when you click on the three vertical dots next to the video. You can save the video to a playlist, add to a queue, watch it later, or remove it from Liked videos.

6. Select Remove from Liked Videos

This action deletes/removes the video from your list of likes. Refresh the page to complete the action. And you need to repeat steps 5 and 6 for all the likes that you wish to remove on YouTube.

Delete YouTube Likes on Android

Android users might have slightly different YouTube interface since the updates aren’t released to everybody. Here is how to remove likes on either UI:

New Interface

1. Access the Account Tab

Launch the YouTube app and tap on Account.

2. Go to Liked Videos

Tap on Liked videos under the Library section and browse for the ones to remove.

3. Select a Video

Mark the video that you want to unlike and hit the Like button underneath to remove it. And again, you need to repeat this step for every like.

Old Interface

1. Open Library

Go to Library on your Android YouTube app and select Liked videos.

2. Find a Video

Find a video you want to unlike.

3. Tap on More

Hit the three horizontal dots to get more actions, then select Remove from Liked videos.

Remove YouTube Likes on iOS

This method is similar to Android and works for iPhones and iPads. Check out how to delete YouTube likes on iOS:

1. Open YouTube App

Tap on the YouTube app to launch it, then hit Library at the bottom right corner of the screen.

2. Tap Liked Videos

Access the Liked videos playlist, then tap More (three horizontal dots) to remove the like.

3. Select Remove from liked videos

Tap on Remove from liked videos for each of the liked videos that you wish to delete from the list.

How to Remove All Likes from Your Channel Feed

If you want to keep the YouTube likes only to yourself, there is a way to do it. It’s more like hiding the likes than removing them, which can come in handy.

1. Launch YouTube

Go to YouTube on your desktop and click the “hamburger” icon, then scroll down to Settings.

2. Click Settings

Choose History and privacy in the Settings tab on the left.

3. Check Keep all my liked videos private

Once you check the box, click save and refresh the page. This action hides all the liked videos on your channel.

A Bonus Method

There is a way to remove YouTube likes all at once. All it requires is some programming skills.

1. Go to YouTube

Open YouTube in a browser, then go to Liked videos.

2. Open Browser Console

For Chrome users, do this.

View > Developer > JavaScript Console

3. Paste the Following Code

Copy and paste this code into the console, then refresh the page for the action to take place. It should remove all your liked videos.

The Code:

var items = $('body').getElementsByClassName("pl-video-edit-remove-liked-video");
for(var i = 0;i < items.length; i++){
Items[i].click() ;


Like most social networks, YouTube doesn’t have a native way to remove all the likes at once. However, some simple coding skills can help you work around this issue. We would love to know your preferred method so don’t hesitate to leave a comment.

This goes twice for those who tried the coding method since it’s the only way to remove all likes on YouTube in a single go.

Here’s my experience:
Jane Doe’s 2021 version works but the “apostrophes” in one line of the code are wrong.

In the line: ‘use strict’;

replace the “apostrophes” with ‘ .

The code takes ages (see below) but the Liked Videos count does go down – eventually!

Well done Jane Doe.

One More Thing: The “apostrophes” can’t be changed in the Console Window after you have pasted the code in. You need to fix the problem in a text editor first and then paste the new code into the Console Window.

AAANNNDDD!!! There’s something wrong somewhere. I get this error continuously….

VM1051: 1 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading ‘click’)
at _clickDelButton (:1:581)

and am not skilled enough to understand it.

The code works but at a snail’s pace. It takes a looooong, loooong time to bring the count down.

Jane Doe! If you’re listening please help!!!

The new-line feeds in the comment page did not register in Ronald Van Wegen’s first post. Sigh…

If you copy and past jane doe’s answer, you may have to replace the single quotes ‘’ with the apostrophe ‘

2021 version:

function sleep(ms) {
return new Promise(resolve => setTimeout(resolve, ms));

async function deleteLikedVideos() {
‘use strict’;
var items = document.querySelectorAll(‘#primary ytd-playlist-video-renderer yt-icon-button.dropdown-trigger > button[aria-label]’);
var out;

for (var i = 0; i < items.length; i++) {
out = setTimeout(function () {
if (document.querySelector('').lastElementChild) {
}, 100);
await sleep(500); // sleep cause browser can not handle the process

It doesn’t work. I keep getting “undefined”.
Kasey says:
How can I delete a video from the Liked Videos playlist on IOS and still keep my “like” of the video intact? Because deleting the video from the playlist on IOS also deletes my vote, which I didn’t realize would happen until I went back and double checked.
Al says:
Thé code needs a fix:
3rd line reads Items[i].click() ;
It should read items[i].click();
