changing or updating names to be displayed on YouTube®

YouTube® has evolved from a website with videos to a social network that allows people to post, create channels, comment and upload content. Since it is owned by Google®, YouTube® is interconnected with Google® and Google+™ accounts. Therefore, changing or updating names to be displayed on YouTube® can be a bit tricky, but not impossible. The instructions below describe the process in a step-by-step guide.

Changing Your YouTube® Name:

  1. Launch your Internet browser, go to the YouTube® page and log in with your account.
  2. In the right-upper corner of the interface, you should see your nickname, bell, avatar and dropdown arrow. Click on the dropdown.
  3. Now click on “Google+” located below the “Google Account” heading.
  4. You will be redirected to the Google+™ interface. On the left side, click on the “Home” dropdown and select “Profile”.
  5. Now you will see your Google+™ page, click on the nickname or name displayed in the gray field.
  6. Select your name, delete it, type in your new nickname, and then click on the “Save” button.
  7. Now if you open the YouTube® page again and log in, this new name will be displayed.
