How to block YouTube channels.

Why to block certain YouTube Channels? Because, when you watch a video on YouTube, you receive suggestions to view also other YouTube channels that you 're not interest in. (e.g. Porn, Adult, etc.).

By design, YouTube doesn't give users the option to block YouTube channels from appearing.
The only security setting that YouTube offers is the "Restricted Mode" settings that gives you the ability to hide videos which are flagged by other users as inappropriate content (adult, violence, etc.). The problem with YouTube's "Restricted Mode" is that it is temporary, unless you sign-in to YouTube with your account and applies only at the current web browser (you have to enable "restricted Mode" on all web browsers you 're using).

* Note: If you want to enable "Restricted Mode", scroll down at YouTube's page and set the "Restricted Mode" to "ON".
