Sign in with a YouTube username

If you can't sign in with your YouTube username, try signing in to YouTube with your Google account. Then, enter the same password you’ve been using to log in to YouTube.

You're still signing in to the same account as always—you just enter the email address on the account instead of your YouTube username.

Why do I need to sign in to a Google Account on YouTube?

You access YouTube with your Google Account. The password you've used to sign in is your Google Account password.

As we integrate services across Google, we no longer support signing in to Google Accounts with YouTube usernames. Instead, you sign in to YouTube with your Google Account email address. This is often Gmail, but can also be a different domain like Yahoo, Hotmail, etc. Learn more about using your Google Account for YouTube.

But I don’t like my Google Account email address!

Some old YouTube channels (created before May 2009) are not part of a Google Account. Find out how to access a YouTube channel that's not part of a Google Account.
