How to Make a YouTube Account

YouTube allows users to search and browse millions of community and comment, rate and make video responses to your favorite videos, upload and share your videos with millions of other users and save your favorite videos to watch and share later. Here is how to make a YouTube account.
1. Visit the YouTube Web site in order to get started. Before you start an account, understand a few things:

  • In creating a YouTube account, you are also creating a Gmail account. This will appear as [YouTube username]
  • In creating a YouTube account, you are also creating a Google+ account. Google+ is Google's social network, similar to Facebook. You will be able to adjust your setting in the Google+ tab at the top of your browser when you log in to YouTube or Gmail. If you do not want a Google+ account, can delete it while still keeping your YouTube account.
  • What you do on YouTube is separate from what you do on Google's various sister sites. If you do something on YouTube, it will not be visible on Google+, for example.

2. Click on the "Sign in" button in the upper-right corner of the home page.

3. Click on the “Create an account” button in the upper-right corner of the page
  • If you already have a Gmail account, should have a YouTube account. Use your Gmail username and password to log into YouTube.

4. Fill out the requisite information. Fill out your e-mail address, user name, date of birth, gender and click “I Accept”.

5. Supply a phone number for verification that you are not a machine, if prompted. To cut down on fake accounts or accounts managed by bots, Google sometimes will make you provide verification.

6. Type in the verification code, if necessary.

7. Decorate your YouTube page. On your profile page, you can add a main picture and your own background, among other things. Try to express yourself.

8. Start enjoying the perks of an account. Once you have signed up for a YouTube account, you can:

  • Make and add videos to the YouTube community.
  • Track your favorite users by subscribing to their channel.
  • Manage your favorite tracks, videos, and online episodes.
  • Comment on videos and socialize with other members of the community.
