Check if you have a Brand Account

If a channel is linked to a Brand Account, multiple people can manage it from their Google Accounts. You don't need a separate username or password to manage YouTube channels with a Brand Account.

First, check to see if your channel is already connected to a Brand Account:

  1. Go to You may need to sign in first. 
  2. Check under "Account information" for one of the following:
    • If you see the message "You are the owner of this channel and the connected Brand Account," you have a Brand Account. You can now follow the instructions to change channel owners and managers.
    • If you don't see the note or an option to add managers, you need to create a new Brand Account or associate your channel with an existing Brand Account. 
    • If you know you have a Brand Account, click your account icon in the top right and make sure you're using the right account.
On YouTube, you can only use one channel at a time. Even if you have a Brand Account, it doesn't mean that you're automatically using it. Learn how to switch between accounts.
