its the creepy cheek of the fact that they dont offer you a choice. i mean, you must have an email address anyway,but they simply put you through to a google account. you should have choices and not be forced to make a gmail account simply to use youtube.

i also hear its made you link to google.

yeah, and this mobile number feature is cool, too. sometimes, when you log in, they ask for your mobile number, the button to skip this feature and proceed to your account is small and hard to find. very tricky.


You can skip that?

Damn, I had to charge my phone after months of not using it just so I could grab my number off it and put it in after Youtube logged me out of my account and I had to sign back in.

are you serious ? wow. first time i got that mobile phone number pop-up, it took me a couple of minutes to find the "exit". in these minutes, i too believed, i have to give my number, otherwise i would not be able to log into youtube.

I have a gmail account from when you had to be invited to use Gmail at all.
Google has no time to look at me personally I hope, but really being on the ground floor of Gmail was awesome.

Yep, I spent 10 minutes looking for a way past it cause I wanted to use a youtube video for something and deadline was ticking down so in the end I gave up and put my number in.

It's been that way for at least 2 years. That's not a new policy, believe it or not.

It actually logs you into google too... as in "Google search" so while you're searching for your Japanese eel porn fetish videos, google knows about it....




It shows in top right hand corner when you're logged into google search.


Maybe it's changed since?

Did you upload that video?

Is it your content?

I think you missed the OPs point... they wants to upload videos... the only way you can do that is to register and you need a gmail account to do so.
