Stop Spam Emails from YouTube
YouTube is the most well known website in the world for having all kinds of videos for you to watch. The downside is that many users are getting spam emails from scammers/phishers. These scammers will try their best to constantly send these scam attempts to your Gmail inbox that appear to be truly sent from YouTube.
They’ll send you messages about how someone you don’t know at all has shared a video with you and various other attempts to get as much information about you as possible. Many of these either include a “threat” or negative impact of some kind towards your account or even a “reward” given to you by following the fake instructions. But that's all it is - a scam.
If you're tired of getting bombarded with these kinds of scam emails, you can follow these instructions to block as many of them as possible.
- Install Block Sender for Gmail by clicking the “Install” button found in the upper right-hand corner of this site. The installation won’t take long. Open Gmail when it is done.
- After signing up for a Block Sender account and linking your Gmail account to Block Sender, open the unwanted YouTube scam email, and click the "Block" button on the messages toolbar.
- Select the "Emails from this sender" option.
