Hide Recent Activity from a YouTube Channel Home Page

Edited by Djinu, VisiHow, Dougie

You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to hide your recent activity from a YouTube channel home page. The default setting is to show your recent videos that you liked in an activity feed on the home page. This may not be beneficial because you may be signed into your account and pressing "Like" for random videos that are unrelated to your channel. The particular channel I am using is a travel-related channel, but there are some videos appearing in my feed that have nothing to do with travel.
