    Has anyone found a way to delete a user account entered into the Youtube app?

    I only see an option to add another account but no option to remove an account.

    Anyone? :thinking:

    Found out from another user -

    Go to:

    Menu > Settings > Accounts & sync > Click Youtube Account

    On the bottom it should say Remove Account.

    Same problem...it automatically links to an old youtube account that I never use and would like a way to change it and link it to my google log in.

    Go to:

    Menu > Settings > Accounts & sync > Click Youtube Account

    On the bottom it should say Remove Account."

    Tried this and it doesn't say anything about removing an account.

    The steps reported above are correct but a bit more information was needed, because it can be misleading. For reference, my phone is the Droid X variant of Android.

    Go to: Settings > Accounts

    Within this screen you should be able to identify your YouTube account. Mine was <username>@youtube.com.

    Long Press on the account you wish to remove.

    A pop-up appears with only one option, "Open Account"

    Click on "Open Account" (this is likely where many people get confused; "I don't want to open the account, I just want to delete it!" Trust me, this is where you need to go)

    The next screen that appears now shows a "Remove Account" button at the bottom. Click "Remove Account" and acknowledge the "are you sure" pop-up.

    Account has now been removed and will not automatically appear next time you access the app.:D

    What do you do when youtube doesn't show up under accounts?
     
  6. In the YouTube app: Menu> My Channel then tap Sign Out in the upper right corner.

    Settings < Accounts & Sync < Select the right account (one with the same email address associated with your YouTube account) < Click 'Remove Account' < Confirm It.

    EDIT: Sorry, I didn't realise how old this thread was.
