Service-specific age requirements

Some Google services have specific age requirements. Here are a few examples:

  • YouTube: When a YouTube video has been age-restricted, a warning screen is displayed and only users who are 18 or older can watch it. Learn more about age-restricted videos.
  • Google Payments: Most forms of payment are restricted to users who are 18 or older. For age requirements for Play gift card redemption, check your country's terms of service.
  • AdSense: 18+
  • Google Ads: 18+

Disabled account due to age requirement

Across Google services, if we learn that you may not be old enough to have a Google Account, you'll have 14 days to update your account to meet age requirements or your account will be disabled.
