How to deal with a hacked YouTube channel?
Google will help you in every step in your account recovery. If you see the changes that you didn’t make just like above examples, then you can go to YOUTUBE ACCOUNT RECOVERY and answer a few questions to prove ownership of your account.
Check out boogie2988’s emotional video on how YouTube employees helped him to recover his hacked YouTube account.
All the YouTubers who were hacked got their YouTube channel just like they wanted without losing subscribers.
So, when hacked, don’t panic, and call YouTube for help.
