create youtube account without email
well no, you can’t create a youtube account without an existing email account or sign up for a gmail or google account first. However, you can create a YouTube account without Gmail or a Google account using an existing non-Gmail email account. follow the guide above to do it.
many years ago, when youtube first appeared on the internet, it used to be separate from gmail and all other google products. In fact, almost all of Google’s products required different accounts and logins. For a few years now, Google has combined all of its products so that users can sign in to any Google product with a single Google account. they used to call it an account, all of google.
This means that when you register a google account, you can use gmail, youtube, google plus, google maps, google docs, google account for chrome browser and more, with one account. Registering a Google account does not mean that you must also have a Gmail account. You can register a Google account with an existing non-gmail email address. it’s just an email address that google uses to recognize that it’s you. If you follow the instructions on how to create youtube account without gmail as described above, you can access other google products with that account.
When you click the signup button on youtube.com, it will redirect you to the google account signup form. after registering, you will be redirected to youtube.com with your registered account logged in.

create youtube account without phone number
As for creating a youtube account without a phone number, of course it’s possible. By default, the phone number field is just an optional field on the google account signup form. It is recommended so that Google can recover your account by contacting you via your phone number if you ever accidentally lose your account.
update: However, there are some scenarios and conditions where a phone number is required and is mandatory when creating a youtube or google account. The most common scenario is when you have already signed up for multiple youtube or google accounts, google will ask for your phone number if you try to sign in again. when google detects unusual activity that looks like spam, including too many registered youtube or google accounts, it will ask you for the phone number for your next registered google account. if you don’t provide one, they won’t let you create any more accounts with them.
