How to Change Youtube Password


Changing your YouTube password used to be as easy as visiting your account settings. However, as of recently, your YouTube account doubles as a Google account, which means that your YouTube password is the same as your Gmail and Docs passwords. Accordingly, if you want to alter your YouTube password, you must now alter the password of the associated Google account. It is not necessary to visit the YouTube site at all.

The following is a guide on how to update your Google account password and access YouTube with your new credentials. This may be done on any modern computer using any web browser.

You need to have a Google Account in order to sign in to your YouTube account. One Google Account gives users access to the entirety of Google’s product lineup (like Gmail, Blogger, Maps, YouTube, and more). If you’ve ever used any of these products in the past and logged in using your Google account, you already have a Google Account and don’t need to create a new one.

If you have a YouTube Brand Account, you have the ability to change the owners and managers of your channel. If you have a standard YouTube channel, on the other hand, you can only have one owner and one manager at a time. A YouTube channel is inextricably linked to a specific person as well as that person’s email address.
