This page lists all the countries which YouTube is, or was, blocked from viewing in, as of 2024, only 5 countries have blocked YouTube.

Currently blocked[]

Formerly blocked[]

Reasoning[]

Most Muslim nations blocked YouTube during 2012 because of a controversial Islamophobic trailer for a movie called The Innocence of Muslims (2012). YouTube had failed to take it down. It was unblocked after the video was taken down.[citation needed]

YouTube, along with most of the Internet, is banned in North Korea as the North Korean government fears its people will be exposed to information outside of the control of the DPRK that may cause their citizens to think differently about the country. The same is true for China, although there are alternatives to YouTube that users have access to. Despite these reasonings, there are multiple government run channels, most prominent in Iran and North Korea, that are up today. Only government officials have free access to YouTube in these countries.[citation needed]
