Set a default YouTube Channel Identity for your YouTube account


Tired of selecting or switching YouTube channel identities every time you sign in?

Now you can select any of your YouTube channels - either connected to your Google+ Profile or a Google+ Page you manage - to be the default when you sign in. After setting a default channel, the next time you sign into YouTube you won't have to select a channel identity to use.

There are two ways to set the default channel:
  1. Select a channel when you sign into YouTube along with the option "Don't ask me again"
  2. Set a channel as the default in the channel's advanced settings (www.youtube.com/account_advanced)
Note that this replaces the option to select a channel for "Signing into older apps" previously found on your Google+ Profile-connected YouTube channel's advanced settings page.

2. Go to your channel's Advanced Settings at www.youtube.com/account_advanced

3. Select the option "Use this channel [Channel Name] when I sign into my [email username] account"
