The issue in GetHuman-damwood's own words
Delete my gmail only ... I created a YouTube before gmail around ** years ago. Once it was required I had to link my YouTube to my gmail. I eventually chose to delete my gmail account not knowing it would lock me out of my separate YouTube account I created with a username and password. Now obviously YouTube won’t let me sign in because it will only log in through YouTube. Is there anyway to reactivate my account even if no email or anything else, more like a new gmail with the same name to open my YouTube again? I had a video business for over ** years and lost everything now because of this garbage forced gmail linkage. Please help I did this a while ago but can’t fathom how I lost everything because of you. My old address was *****@***.com
My YouTube was never created with a gmail, why did my YouTube account get closed
My YouTube channel back, I don’t even have these videos anymore
Over ** years
Spent two hrs searching google, forums, and how to videos
I have an issue with Google too
