Having done that, scroll downwards and click on the “Delete a service or your account” option located in the “Download, delete or make a plan for your data” section.
When you get to the “Delete a Google service” section, click on the “Delete a service” section. If you’d wish to download and store your data from Youtube before nuking the account, click on the “Download Data” After that, you’ll have the option to check the list of Google services for downloading data. Also, you can choose the type of data as well as the delivery method.
With that done, click on the trash icon beside YouTube. Sign-in into your account when prompted to verify your identity.
Having done that, proceed and click on the “I want to permanently delete my content” to delete your account and all the content in it.
Check all the boxes to prove to Google that you understand what’s going on and would wish to go ahead. Having done that, click on the “Delete My Content” And that’s all about using a browser to delete your Youtube channel.
Note: Once the process of account deletion is successful, you can never undo the operation. Therefore, if you aren’t ready to delete your account, you can choose to hide it instead. When you hide your account, all the activities of your account are set to private.

After that, proceed and tap on the “I want to permanently delete my content” option if you want to delete your account and everything that it contains.
