How to Use Google Account to Log into Youtube on Your iPhone

Do you like opening and accessing videos on Youtube? Do you encounter problems when you want to log into the site and yet your iPhone doesn’t seem to have the access to open your account? Well, basically, it is a common problem for iPhone users because the Google linked account doesn’t come with app specific password that is set up and aimed for use for Youtube app on iPhone.

Have you ever experienced the same thing that you are trying to log into your account by typing the right password and username – you are even very careful to do in order to avoid mistakes – over and over and over again, and yet your iPhone seems to ask you to login from Safari. And even after you have tried this suggestion, Youtube doesn’t want to grant you access and refuse to open up. You are told repeatedly that somehow your password and username is wrong – and you know that you aren’t doing anything wrong in typing them.

It is not your fault; trust me. But don’t give up hope as you can always tweak you ways into accessing the site. You need to activate verification process on your Google Account first, though, and you are guaranteed to be able to access Youtube again. After activating the verification process, you can create the particular app specific password for your iPhone.

Here are the steps for you to do the activation process:

1. Sign in to your Google Account, then go to Account’s setting.
2. Choose Security tab and then click Setup for 2-step verification.

    Thanks for this tutorial Leon. I have been wanting to do this for quite some time now yet haven’t been able to as it continued to block me.

    Whenever I subscribed to something on YouTube, it would ask me to login and I never could! I will try using this and see if it works. Thanks Leon.
