How to Transfer a YouTube Account to Another Email

Save

When you sign up for an account with YouTube, you provide an email address. If you signed up using an email address that you now no longer want to use, change it by updating you account information. For example, you are changing Internet service providers, or you simply have another email address that you prefer to use. Google owns YouTube, so when you have a linked YouTube-Google account, you'll need to update the email address associated with your Google account.

YouTube

  • Go to the YouTube website (youtube.com) if you have a YouTube account that is not linked to a Google account.

  • Sign in to your account.

  • Click the drop-down menu labeled with your user name at the top of the page, and then click "Account."

  • Click "Email Options." Type your new email address and your YouTube password, then type in the verification code to prove you are a human (a "Captcha" code that is difficult for automated programs to read), and then click "Send Confirmation." YouTube sends a confirmation message to your old email address.

  • Read the email message that YouTube sent to your old account and click the verification link in the message to confirm that you want to change your email address.

Google

  • Go to the Google Accounts home page (google.com) if you have a linked YouTube-Google account.

  • Log in to your account.

  • Click the "Change Mail" link, which is located next to "Security."

  • Type your new email address and your current Google password.

  • Click "Save." Google sends a verification message to your old email address. Read the verification message sent to your old email address, and click the verification link in the message to confirm the change.
