I have a YouTube channel that recently got its first ever copyright violation.

This YouTube account is linked to my main Gmail account with thousands of emails.

My question is simple: if the YouTube channel gets banned for whatever reason, am I also going to lose the Gmail account / the whole Google account?


No, you will not lose your Gmail account. But you will not be able to access your associated YouTube channels.

  • Thanks :) I also have another question as I just received an email from YouTube. I posted it here and I'd be super grateful if you knew the answer: webapps.stackexchange.com/questions/94595/… – MSOACC Jun 9 '16 at 1:12
  • @serenesat will I be able to surf or explore youtube channels or any song? – Harshit Agrawal Nov 9 '17 at 15:39
