How to Verify YouTube Channel
Just to be clear this is not to be confused with Verification badge! We have a different guide for that here. In this guide we shall show you how to verify YouTube without having your own phone or perhaps you’ve reached the yearly limit on how many channels you can verify with your number (I believe the number is 2 or 3). This method is totally FREE by the way.
- First step is to register for https://www.textnow.com/ you can use facebook to register doesn’t really matter what info you give them either fake names etc.
- After this of course you need a youtube channel and the verify page can be found at https://www.youtube.com/features
- Go back to Textnow.com and it will ask you USA area code, for example 212 is New York and Chicago is 312 – it will give you a phone number and use that on the YouTube field and do not choose text message use the voice call (Choose USA as Country)
- After this you have to wait for while 1-2 minutes and you will receive a voicemail on textnow, there you should get ~26 second clip from Google telling you the 6-digit verification number, which you shall insert on YouTube.
After this your channel is verified and you get access to certain things unverified people can’t. Hopefully this guide was useful for people who create lot of channels or just don’t own any phones. I recommend checking out guides we have created on this website, that will help you out on YouTube.
