How Do I Leave A Family Group on YouTube Premium?

YouTube Premium’s Family Group is a subscription package that allows up to 5 members. Family members in the same household can avail of this option. There are cases when you would want to leave a group. For example, you may be moving out or simply want to take a break from YouTube. Read on to see how you can leave a family group on YouTube Premium.

Leaving On Your Own

It is easy to leave the Family Group on YouTube Premium. It takes only a few steps:

  1. Open the YouTube app.
  2. Make sure you are signed in to your account.
  3. Tap the three lines on the upper left of your screen.
  4. Choose Settings.
  5. Select Account
  6. Go to Family Group.
  7. Tap on Leave Family Group.

You have now successfully left the family group. Remember that you will have to request the Family Manager to include you if you want to return to the group, so think carefully before you leave.

Asking the Family Manager

Each Family Group has a designated Family Manager who has access to and control over the subscription. This includes adding and removing family members. This is another option you can take if you want to leave the group. For the family manager to remove you, he/she has to:

  1. Open the YouTube TV app.
  2. Sign in to the family manager account.
  3. Tap the profile picture.
  4. Go to Settings.
  5. Tap Family Sharing.
  6. Tap Manage.
  7. Select the family member to remove from the group.
  8. Tap Remove member

After these steps are accomplished, you will no longer be a part of the family group. If you change your mind, you can still request the family manager to add you back to the group.
