Want to use YouTube features? Consider logging in to the platform. In this post, we have discussed how to sign in to a YouTube account.
A YouTube account lets you upload content and access other tools as a creator. Certain features require you to log in if you are a regular user just looking to watch on YouTube.
Reacting to videos, leaving a comment, downloading a video for an offline watch, and saving a video to a playlist requires an active logged-in session.
You can log in and use YouTube across all gadgets and screen sizes. On a computer, you need a web browser to use YouTube. Mobile phone users can either access YouTube from a mobile browser or install the YouTube mobile app on their devices.
To access YouTube, you must only sign in to your Google account. If you don't have one, consider creating it before you proceed.
You need to sign in to your Google account from YouTube to experience non-restricted access to all functions, tools and features on the platform.
How to Sign in to YouTube Account
Access YouTube on Android
To sign in to YouTube on Android, launch the YouTube mobile app and select Account, then Sign in.
To proceed, you must select the Google account associated with your YouTube account or create a new one if you are a new user. Once you have successfully logged in to your Google account, you can continue accessing YouTube.
Signing out of the account is also easy. On the YouTube app, tap your profile picture and select the “Switch account” option.
Next, choose “Manage accounts” and select the Google account associated with YouTube to remove. Tap “Remove account”, and you will be logged out of YouTube.
Removing a Google account will not only sign you out of the associated YouTube account but will also sign you out of all Google apps on your phone.
Access YouTube on iPhones
Launch the YouTube app on the iPhone and go to Account, then Sign in. To proceed, you must choose an existing Google account or add a new one.
To Sign out while on the YouTube app, select your profile icon, and choose the “Switch account” option. Finally, then “Use YouTube signed out”.
You'll see a brief notification at the bottom of the screen that lets you know you've signed out of the app.
Access YouTube on the Web
To use YouTube on a personal computer, visit https://www.youtube.com/ and select the “Sign in” option from the top of your screen. You will be redirected to the Google account sign-in page to sign in.
Enter the email address associated with your Google account and click on “Next”, then enter the correct password. If the login is successful, you will be taken back to YouTube as a logged-in user.
Otherwise, you might have entered the wrong email address/password combination. In that case, use the “forgot email” or “forgot password” option.
All YouTube users can watch videos on the platform. You can also search for videos using the search bar at the top of the website.
You can create a YouTube channel and upload your videos as a creator. Make different playlists for your videos to divide them into groups.
Once your video goes live, other users can like, comment and share what you have created. However, you must ensure originality in your content and post timely to attract subscribers to your channel. You can also subscribe and follow other YouTube channels you like.
