YouTube doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-leahvaug will need to dig through the advice provided by YouTube, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-leahvaug can let us know if they help or not.
If time is of the essence or you are lost, we partner with a BBB-accredited US-based company that has live experts you can chat with about issues like this for roughly $20-45. Chat now with an expert.
Before contacting them, items GetHuman-leahvaug may need:
Email on Account, Phone Number, Name of Account Holder, and Password
The issue in GetHuman-leahvaug's own words
I was locked out of my account because of a video my young grandson made on my ipad of his cousins. I appealed and was denied. YouTube would not accept my explanation that *.I didn't make the video, *. It was accidentally uploaded when uploading other things, *. I would never ever put anything sexual up, and *. If they looked at my account they would know that it is only for family videos. Now I have lost all of my family videos. No one will listen to my explanation and reinstate my account. I am heart broken over this loss of my family memories. I accept that they removed the questionable video because I would have done the same. I just want to be heard and given another chance. I would never ever even consider putting something up inappropriate. Things happen that are beyond one's control sometime and it is devastating when you aren't allowed to explain.
GetHuman-leahvaug did not yet indicate what YouTube should do to make this right.
