These are the top cybersecurity channel list not based on subscribers or the amount of content they produce but on talent and value provided by these awesome people. The channel list is well researched and recommended by professional hackers on Reddit.

As these channels are recommended by other hackers there is no chance of involving vender specific channels McAfee, Sophos, or Kaspersky as these channels only focused on selling something.

we’re living in an era where we’re finally giving value to learning security and the security-related content is freely available to us through platforms such as youtube and other platforms. We should appreciate anyone who’s investing their time in making content for us.

So as always I was surfing Reddit and stumbled upon this post where I found tons of best cybersecurity youtube channels and thought it might be helpful for the people starting in cybersecurity journey. I won’t arrange these channels in order as I find each channel valuable.

John Hammond

Covers: Tryhackme rooms, all sorts of CTFs, Hackthon challenges.

John Hammond is mostly covering TryHackme rooms his demonstration and teaching skills are awesome and his videos are entertaining to watch as this person says he gets himself confused and you can see his brain working in real-time which is a great way to learn from and you can see him finding his ways through.

I agree with what carl says, “LiveOverlfow goes through the effort to explain the very technical security concepts, and not only that but also goes through the process to get there”, I personally found this channel very helpful and beginner-friendly as he guides you through the process.

This is a helpful introductory video to his channel take your time to watch this.


IppSec is the best channel he mostly covers CTFs and TryHackme rooms. It's the most recommended and channel out there. His demonstrations straight to the point and has awesome teaching skills.
