Leave a channel

In Slack, teamwork happens in channels – organised spaces for everything related to a project, topic or team. If a channel is no longer relevant, members can choose to leave it at any time.

Bear in mind

Leave channels




  1. Open the channel that you'd like to leave.
  2. Click on the channel name in the conversation header.
  3. Click on the About tab.
  4. Click on Leave channel
  1. Open a channel, then tap the channel name.
  2. Tap Leave Channel.
  1. From the channel, tap  Details in the top right.
  2. Tap Leave.

Note: If you leave a private channel, its messages and files will no longer appear in your search results. To rejoin, you'll need to be added back by another member of that channel.
