Custom URL for YouTube - easier access
You do not have a custom URL for your YouTube channel? Good news! YouTube has lowered the requirements, it is now much easier to get a custom URL for your channel. The new requirements are:
- At least 100 subscribers
- Existing for at least 30 days
- Have a profile picture
- Have a banner
Since each custom URL can only be claimed once, make sure to secure the URL of your choice in YouTube Studio fast, so that no one else can select it.
Important changes for YouTube Studio
YouTube requires now all accounts associated with a monetizing YouTube channel to enable 2 step verification to access YouTube Studio and/or YouTube Studio Content Manager. 2-Step Verification is a way to protect your account with both your password and an additional device.
Start the process by opening your Google account and go to security settings to make the necessary changes. If you don’t turn on 2-Step Verification, you will not be able to access YouTube Studio or YouTube Studio Content Manager until you secure your account. This will not impact your channel’s monetization.
