What Happens When You Get Multiple Strikes on Youtube – Does 90 Days Wait Start Over?

When you receive a Community Guidelines strike on YouTube, the 90-day period for the strike to expire starts from the date of the violation that led to the strike. If you receive another strike within the 90-day period of your first strike, the consequences escalate, but the countdown for the expiration of each strike does not reset or start over. Each strike expires 90 days from the date it was issued.

Here’s how it generally works:

  • First Strike: When you receive your first strike, your ability to upload videos, live streams, or stories on YouTube may be restricted for a period of one week. The strike itself remains on your channel for 90 days from the date of the violation.
  • Second Strike: If you receive a second strike within the same 90-day period as your first strike, your account will face further restrictions. This time, you won’t be able to upload content for two weeks. The second strike also expires 90 days from its issuance date, independent of the first strike’s timeline.
  • Third Strike: Receiving a third strike within a 90-day period from your first strike can lead to your channel being terminated.

The key point is that each strike has its own 90-day expiration period, and receiving additional strikes within those 90 days escalates the restrictions and potential for channel termination. The expiration timeline for each strike does not reset or start anew with each subsequent strike you receive; instead, each strike’s expiration is counted from when it was initially issued.
