Hide YouTube from your computer's users by removing it from Chrome search results.

Google's Chrome browser has an extension named "Personal Blocklist." Users who install this extension can use it to prevent any website from appearing in their Google search results list. Many may find this ability useful when protecting children from inappropriate websites. Even though Google owns YouTube, an online video sharing site, you can still block it using the Personal Blocklist extension for Google Chrome.


Step 1

Launch Google Chrome, and navigate to the Chrome Store Web page that contains the "Personal Blocklist (By Google)" browser extension.
