However, it becomes difficult for some users who don’t have a Google account or who don’t want to sign in to bypass the YouTube age restriction or verification.

Luckily, there are methods available that let you watch the Age Restricted Videos on YouTube without sign-in. You can use these methods to bypass the YouTube age restriction without signing in to your Google account. I’m going to share all the methods that help you do that in this post.

Top 7 Methods to Bypass YouTube Age Restriction on PC/Mobile

YouTube is the biggest free video streaming platform owned, and managed by Google. More than 500 hours of videos are uploaded to YouTube every hour. This calculates to a total of 720,000 hours of video uploaded daily. A lot of these videos are not suitable to watch for children, but useful for adults. YouTube flags such videos as “Age-restricted.”

In order to watch the age-restricted videos on YouTube, one has to sign-in using their Google account and verify their age. If their age is above 18, they can watch the video, but if not, the video will be blocked for them.
