How to choose and secure your personal YouTube account

Handles are nothing new. You can find them on many different social platforms, especially Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat, just to name a few. But while YouTube is more focused on the media side of social media, the platform is now helping users be more social, thanks to the introduction of handles.

YouTube handles were introduced in October 2022 as a way for creators and users to set unique identifiers separate from their channel name. That’s because, unlike channel names, handles are unique and no two people can have the same handle. This makes it much better for users to better identify their favorite creators and avoid accounts trying to impersonate them.
