Only to find that I *simply must* give my phone number and receive a call from Google if I ever want to be able to use my YouTube account again...



Well guess what YouTube...



I couldn't fucking care less, and furthermore, I will have no need for a YouTube account again at any point in the future.



Go fuck yourselves real deep and hard and think of me.

Telephone prevents DOS attacks by the way of registration, same for account recovery.

For instance, say I get into your email account at hotmail or yahoo (how? Who cares, you left the page open or something). Lets say you have accounts @ google and I want to access those but I do not have your password. I go to an account recovery page and use your email to send all your google accounts to hotmail or yahoo. Then I reset your passwords to something simple so I can start taking your *stuff*.

Not only that, I can after a while gain access to nearly every account you own.

Enter phone verification. I'd have to have your cell or land-line in front of me to gain the same access.

Phones also help prevent false registrations. Fake emails are easy to create whereas fake phone #s aren't if you have to verify the #.

If I had a bot or script banging away at a registration system without this protection, I could register thousands of people (or fake ppl) and use up all the usernames available (well, just the ones that make sense). I would have effectively halted registration, at least for a period of time (generally a week but many sites don't have a way to clear those out quickly (such as a crone job) and manually have to do it). Phones aren't the only way to secure these but quick and easy, especially if your already using such a service for account recovery.

This doesn't prevent any service provider from using your # for other purposes. Always make sure to read the privacy policies (and terms, things can get intermingled).

Re: I sign into my well used, very comfortable YouTube account...
Okay so from that link I pasted...

I did their stupid "give us another email address" thingy, then answered a few questions...

1. What is my password

2. When was the last time I was able to log into my account

3. When did I create my account



All my answers were right, but I kinda guessed the third one and still let me in...

Now I'm on a page where it's displaying "Account recovery options" and from here I can add a phone number, email addresses, etc.

And now I am also successfully logged into YouTube.


Interesting...

So this is how you get around giving them your phone number folks...

FOR NOW.

What do you need a You tube Account.

I go and watch what I want the same way I come to GLP. I see no use to have an account for anybody to control me. If I get banned, I come in anytime I please and refresh as many times as I please.

I am a free man, and I will always remain one.

Fuck You Tube and fuck ALL registrations.

The cool thing is, the more regulated the interwebz becomes, the further underground I go.

I did a Bing search of my name... and I'm clean as a whistle because I HAVE NEVER USED MY REAL NAME FOR ANY OF THESE ACCOUNTS.

These info-miners can mine somebody else's info.

Something that sucks is that if you are applying for jobs, a prospective employer will search on your name and if nothing comes up, that counts against you.

I am getting increasingly creeped out by all this and increasingly resistant . . .

Why would that count against you? My days of job hunting are pretty much over with anyway, but what makes you think that an employer would not hire you if you don't have a facebook or youtube account?

Re: I sign into my well used, very comfortable YouTube account...
I recall reading the contract when they had us yt-ers go to the new google system. It actually says they own all our vids and may reproduce, redistribute, delete, archive, etc. and also edit our content. Edit is what got me, they can edit our words and image and in 5 years we are on the news saying some dumb shit. I am aware of it but so far not to worried. It is something to consider.
Good luck to all real people here, whoever is left.

Re: I sign into my well used, very comfortable YouTube account...
Now they are giving the "choose your identity" popup every time I sign in...


EVERY SINGLE TIME I sign in, I have to give a click of acceptance to keep my identity (original screen name) on YouTube. The other option is using the email address of the account. Basically they're trying to force me to merge with the Google+ profile page.


I keep choosing to use my original YouTube name, and now I've noticed that the display pic I use on YouTube isn't showing up anymore. It's just a blank space that says my username. I notice that other peoples' comments are showing up with this pic error too.


How fucking pathetic of YouTube to FORCE us into using their total dogshit real first/last name system tied into Google+.


Not sure how much more of this fucking retardation I can put up with, especially since the only YouTubers ever touted these days are the FAGGOTS. Total fucking queers and all their queerbait friends doing 'collabs' together. YouTube has literally been taken over by gays. And of course YouTube themselves are behind this. Google is behind it, ultimately.


Fucking disgusting.

Forgot to mention all my other YouTube sock accounts have been locked out now with the forced phone number gig... and I can't even be bothered to try and get around it. Even though they have uploads, and I'd like to have access to them, it's just too much of a pain in the ass to bother. I'd rather just not use YouTube.

Youtube is making it more difficult to share content

From the recent change to the interface

No more reply videos

Comments with Safe Mod On which means you can't read comments unless you sign in or turn it off
