I second that. It never used to be an issue before Google brought YouTube, but now the only way to verify your age is by opening a Gmail account.

Yes. You need a phone number and you need to make your email and a password that no one can hack. I did it that way. Just heard replying to bot's comments on youtube can get your account hacked.

It doesn't, this sort of thing only happens under suspicion of you being underage I think.

Google needs to send a verification code to your phone, you also need a username that is not taken, the same on here, and a strong password. You do not need to provide your drivers license, as that would be ridiculous. If you wish to leave comments, just sign up.

I don't have a gmail account, I use a yahoo account for youtube and i have never had any problem with this verify age stuff. I mean once in a blue moon a msg might come up saying this video is age restricted please confirm you are over 18 or something. but once you click yes it goes away and there is no more trouble with it

Who am I to judge. That's your way and I totally respect that.

That's funny, I've never been asked and it doesn't seem like a normal thing from Google's help pages

Took me a while to find the page, had to sift through my history.

It's a new feature they're slowly rolling out, you need to verify your age to watch age restricted videos
