Anonymizing YouTube

A friend of mine asked me if it is possible to anonymize his YouTube account. Nowadays, it seems that Google (or Facebook) owns everything on the web and if you want a YouTube account, you have to have a Google+ account. However, after a lot of fannying around, I discovered that you don't have to link your Google+ account to YouTube and you can login to YouTube under a pseudonym.
  • Sign into YouTube and click the arrow next to your profile name and picture (top right hand side of the webpage.

  • Select the YouTube Settings option from the left hand menu

  • Click the Disconnect Channel from Google+ option
  • You'll be directed to a Rename channel dialog where you will either revert to your original YouTube name or be forced to choose a new one.
