Delete YouTube

How do I remove YouTube? If it’s searched for on  TV guide its pincode protected. Which is great. Problem is it’s also on the bottom of the ‘my shows’ section. Here it does nt require a pincode which is far from great. How do I remove it from this location. I do nt want my children to be able to access it so easily.  

I ve looked everywhere for a way to remove it/hide it/pincode protect it. It’s so frustrating. I’d happily cancel Virgin.

Re: Delete YouTube

AFAIK you might be canceling then. Pretty sure you can't remove it

Re: Delete YouTube

Hi, Teapea.

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the community. 🙂

 

Sorry, there's no way to fully lock YouTube.

 

I highly recommend restricting the content within the YouTube app by opening the app, selecting Settings and then scroll across to Restricted mode.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Kind regards,

Chai_S

You can:

Settings - Parental - Apps & Videos - select "Block access to YouTube" (and any other app you wish to block).

Just tried that and it doesn't work for the Youtube app - the only app it gives me the option to parental lock is Hayu.

So clearly it is possible, but for some reason (money?) Virgin do not want to allow it.

My message was in response to someone saying you can't block YouTube on Sky (which is wrong, you can). it doesn't apply to Virgin, sorry for any confusion.
