Changing Your YouTube Login Account

JQTZQEJ6Y7UQ

A friend and client asked me awhile back how she could change the e-mail account associated with her YouTube channel. At that point in time, it still wasn’t possible. However, when Google purchased YouTube and began merging the accounts together, they introduced a feature that allowed user to change the e-mail address associated with the account.

This solved a host of other problems. For instance, if you created your channel before securing your domain, you couldn’t update the channel before so that you were using an e-mail address from your domain. Or if the channel was created by someone who no longer works with your company, you had to keep their old e-mail address alive just to be able to access your channel.

With the Google merge, YouTube did away with its own unique sign-in information, asking instead that you signed in using a Google account, or converted an existing e-mail address to a Google account. Now, you also have the ability to unlink your YouTube channel from one account and then associate it with another.

This video walks you through the process.
