How To Remove Users From Slack Channel

Slack is a popular messaging app that allows teams to communicate and collaborate effectively. However, sometimes it may be necessary to remove users from a specific channel within Slack. This can be done for various reasons such as security concerns, inappropriate behavior, or simply because the user no longer needs access to the channel. In this article, we will guide you through the process of removing users from a Slack channel.

Step 1: Open Slack

To begin with, open the Slack app on your device or log in to the web version. Once you are logged in, click on the three horizontal lines located at the top left corner of the screen.

Step 2: Select the Channel

From the drop-down menu, select the channel from which you want to remove a user. This will take you to the channel’s conversation page.

Step 3: Click on the Gear Icon

On the channel’s conversation page, look for the gear icon located at the top right corner of the screen. Click on it to access the channel settings.

Step 4: Select “Members”

In the channel settings, you will see a list of options. Scroll down and click on “Members”. This will take you to a page where you can view all the users who have access to the channel.

Step 5: Find the User

On the “Members” page, scroll through the list of users until you find the one you want to remove. Once you have found the user, click on their name to view their profile information.

Step 6: Click on “Remove from Channel”

On the user’s profile page, you will see a button labeled “Remove from Channel”. Click on it to remove the user from the channel. A confirmation dialog box will appear, asking if you are sure you want to remove the user. Click on “Yes” to confirm.

Step 7: Confirm Removal

Once you have confirmed the removal, the user will be removed from the channel and will no longer have access to it. You can repeat this process for any other users you want to remove from the channel.


Removing users from a Slack channel is a simple process that can be done in just a few steps. By following the above instructions, you can easily remove any user from a specific channel within Slack. It is important to note that removing a user from a channel does not delete their account or prevent them from accessing other channels within the workspace.
