I Deleted My YouTube Account By Mistake - How Can I Get It Back ?

You’ll land in a new page where you have to enter your YouTube username and the Associated Email Address. Verify if you are entering the right YouTube username as this is very important. You can check if your Username is correct by replacing USERNAME in http://www.youtube.com/user/USERNAME and opening the URL in a new tab / window.

You can reopen your account this way, but the personal details related your account will be deleted for ever, like the videos and comments associated with that account cannot be restored.

    @Donnie
    I spent a few hours on this until i came across a YT page with some fine print at the bottom clearly stating that the accounts recovery options have been “RETIRED”

    I didn’t even have a gmail/google account and they messed up my yt account any way.

    Ok about comments & videos, but what about subscriptions & playlists, will they be deleted as well, for ever?!

    I really need some help guys. I had over a thousand subscribers and today, I went to fix the glitch on the reply button and my account got deleted instead. I was trying to unlink the Google+ account from my YouTube, then this happened. Please, if there is any way to recover my old account, someone notify me. :(

    my youtube account was deleted because someone tampered with it on, I had a lot of footage that we were meant to, and I would ask you to return my account
