  • Question
    Can I add a YouTube-only username without affecting my Google accounts?

    Community Answer
    Unfortunately, no. You can create a new channel as an extension of your Google+ account, but you cannot change your existing username on YouTube only.
    Thanks!

    Right now you cannot change your username from the mobile app or website, according to Google support. You're limited to using a computer (or perhaps the desktop version of the site on your mobile, if that's possible).
    Thanks!
  • Question
    How can I change my YouTube username more than three times?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    You can't. If you really want a new username, just make a new account with it.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    What if the username I want isn't available?
    wikiHow Contributor

    You just have to think of a new one. If a username is unavailable, it means it is already taken, or unusable because it may cause confusion.
    Thanks!
