As with all Google services, you need a single account to log in to YouTube video hosting. If you already have Gmail or use one of the sites of this company, then you do not need to register. Everyone else needs to first create a profile at https://myaccount.google.com, and only then log into your YouTube account using our instructions. Consider authorization in your account on the official website, in the mobile application and on TVs.
Owners of personal computers and laptops prefer to use YouTube through the main browser. The entry procedure in this case is as follows:
- Open the official YouTube site at https://www.youtube.com/.
- Click on the “Login” button in the upper right corner.
- If you already have a Google profile attached to your browser, select it from the list. Otherwise, enter the username (Gmail email address).
- In the second step, specify the password for the profile and click "Next".
- As a result, the YouTube homepage will load again, but with your personal account.
The second method is authorization in any Google service. If the user enters the mail or through the main page https://www.google.com/, then his personal account and all subscriptions will appear on YouTube. This procedure is performed as follows:
- Open the main page of the search engine using the link above.
- Click on the “Login” button in the right corner.
- Select the associated account again or enter the username / password.
- After authorization, the account icon will appear in the upper corner. Press the menu button and go to the site with videos.
If the user has forgotten the password, then access is also restored through the official website:
- At https://accounts.google.com/ServiceLogin/identifier?hl=en&passive = true&continue = https% 3A% 2F% 2Fwww.google.com% 2F&flowName = GlifWebSignIn&flowEntry = AddSession enter the email address or phone number that is the login. Click "Next."
- Click on the link “Forgot your password?”. Write down the last protective combination that you remember. If this option does not fit, click "Other Method".
- A confirmation email will be sent to your backup Email. You need to enter the code on Google and come up with a new password.
Let’s figure out how to enter YouTube through a mobile device. First you need to install the program for your platform. If your smartphone or tablet is on Android, then download the program from here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.youtube&hl = ru, and owners of Apple technology need to download YouTube from here https://apps.apple.com/en/app/youtube/id544007664/. Many people cannot download the application because it is installed on the smartphone by default. In this case, you need to update it to the latest version and proceed to authorization:
- Launch the application and click on the profile icon in the right corner.
- Click the Login button.
- In the window that opens, click on "Add Account".
- If a password or pattern is set on the device, enter it.
- Then enter your Gmail email address.
- Now enter the password from your Google / YouTube page.
An alternative way to log in is to link the account through the settings of the phone itself. It works the same principle as in the case of Google services. When authorizing in one service, the user will enter all the others.
To watch videos and manage your YouTube account via TV without additional equipment, you need a built-in Smart TV. This feature makes it possible to use the Internet, applications, watch movies, videos and so on. To enter YouTube on a TV, you need to install the application through the company directory from the device manufacturer. For example, on LG TVs you need to download the program through the LG Content Store, Samsung products have their own App Store, and so on. After installation, do the following:
1. Using the remote control, go to the TV settings and connect it to a Wi-Fi network or the same router using an Ethernet cable. The smartphone on which you are authorized on YouTube must be connected to the same network.
2. Now launch the application on TV and click the “Login” button. The device starts searching for the nearest smartphone on the same Wi-Fi network.
3. Take your smartphone and click on the profile icon next to which a notification has appeared. Confirm the authorization with the "Enter Account" button. Allow viewing videos using this account. After a short synchronization (the inscription on the TV screen “Login is in progress”) you will see a greeting and a list of recommendations for your profile!
And there is also a second method to connect your account to YouTube on a TV with Smart TV:
1. Follow 1-2 steps from the previous instruction.
2. On the main page of the application, the code will be displayed on the TV. Go to YouTube on your PC or phone and through the settings open the “Watch on TV” section. Enter this code.
3. Give permission to manage your YouTube account from another device.
4. After successful authorization, you will see a corresponding notification on your computer or smartphone. This means that you can go to work with your profile on the TV!
