How To Verify Youtube Account?

However, it’s not the case. First, we will learn how to verify Youtube account and then followed by step by step guidelines on How to verify Youtube channel.
Let’s start with steps to:
Verify Youtube account
Verifying Youtube account notifications pop up every time you use Youtube video manager. Youtube requires valid mobile phone number where Youtube can send a verification code via text message (SMS). You will need to enter this code on Youtube website to complete account verification process. As per Youtube Terms and Policy, they use your phone number just to make sure that you are not a spammer.

Verifying a Youtube name places a little tick symbol next to your Youtube channel. Letting viewers know that this is the official profile, a page representing the brand. Just like verified Twitter profile or also a Facebook verified profile, Youtube verified channels are a symbol of authenticity. It also tells viewers that the channel belongs to the official representative of the brand. It is also a brand itself and not someone running fake accounts.
Brands and also channel owners are searching for alternative. They also search tutorials on how to verify Youtube channel. But Google has very strict policy and there is nothing a channel owner can do to manually request verification.
Google reviews channels based on varying factors to shortlist eligible for the verified mark. The catch is that those channels who are eligible need nothing to do because they automatically get verification instructions from Google.
