    Lol google+ is ruining my life.

    I have a YouTube account and an email account and a google+ account. They are all linked.

    I want to know if there's a way to disconnect google+ from showing up in emails because I'm sending formal emails to places of work and universities and my google account is just there to be clicked on and it has my YouTube videos shown as well which can't be hidden- I do not want people seeing these!

    I then have the issue of my YouTube name which I don't want displaying my first and last name- I want to use a random username (example: icecream123)
    I managed to change it so it was a random username but then that random username also showed up when I sent emails to important places!!!

    At the moment I have left my YouTube name as my first and last name, and made all my videos private :/ so that when I'm sending emails, everything looks 'legit'.

    I'm thinking of just deleting google+ all together because it's wasting my time.
    Another option for me is to change my YouTube account email but I'm not sure how

    Ahhhh google y r u so annoying???

    I have two addresses, and manage them both from the same inbox.

    One which I've had for like 8 years, which is linked to G+ usernames, YouTube, all of that stuff, and another which I can use to send important stuff which just has my name. It's easy to deal with.

    If I was you I would make a new sensible email for important things. Use a different email provider. My personal preference is outlook. I had the same problem as you a year ago with Google Plus and the easiest option was to make a new one.
