How do I fix a hacked account?

If you notice that your YouTube account or channel has been hacked or compromised, you’ll first want to check whether or not you can sign into your account.

If you can’t sign into your account, you’ll need to recover your Google Account by answering some security questions to verify it’s yours. Then, you’ll be prompted to reset your password.

To keep your account protected, we also recommend turning on 2-step verification, which can be done in your Security settings.

If your channel is connected to our network then we can help speed up the process.

What shall I do if the number of viewers has been deducted on my video?

Views that do not qualify as legitimate views will be deducted. This is the case when YouTube sees suspicious activity, for example when many views originate from the same IP-adres. When viewers click away in less than 30 seconds, the views do not qualify and will be deducted from your view count.  Make sure your content is engaging and that your thumbnail and title match the content so that viewers get what they expect and keep watching.

What causes a video to be deleted on YouTube and how will Age Africa help to recover unintentionally deleted videos?

If a video is in violation of YouTube’s terms of service then it may be blocked or ‘taken down’ so that it cannot be viewed. Only the Channel Owner (or a Manager with sufficient permissions) can actually delete a video. Once a video is deleted, it cannot be restored.
