Youtube tips: Creating Your YouTube Account

Creating Your YouTube Account

Step 1: Navigate to Create an Account

Go to and click the “Create An Account” link at the top of the page.

Step 2: Enter Your Account Details

• Enter a username

• Enter your location & postal code

• Set your date of birth from the drop down options

• Select your gender

• Choose whether or not you want others to be able to find your channel if they have your email address.

• Select whether or not you want to receive email communication from YouTube & their sponsors

• Fully read the terms of use.

• If you agree to the terms and everything else is correct, click the “I Accept” button.

Step 3: Associate Your YouTube Account & an Email Address

If you already have a Google account, you can associate it with your YouTube account simply by entering your Google email and password in the box on the left.

If you do not have a Google account, then you will need to add a different email address, enter a password (twice) and enter the CAPTCHA word verification.

Once you do this, click “Create New Account & Finish”

Step 4: Confirmation & Getting Started

Once the account is created or you log into your existing account, you’ll see a confirmation message with your account details, links to get started using YouTube and links for finding your friends on YouTube.

Once your account is created, you’ll automatically have a “channel” in which you can customize and showcase your videos.
