YouTube is the largest and free video streaming app developed and managed by the web giant, Google. With everyone having access to the platform, it has some policies which need to be followed strictly by everyone. One such policy is that no one can post any adult content on YouTube or any content which is not appropriate to the users of all ages as nowadays, YouTube is equally popular among the children and the old people. Although the adult videos are not allowed on YouTube, still there are some videos which are not appropriate to the young users but useful for the adults. So, YouTube allows posting such videos but for such videos, YouTube places a content warning message which asks the users for an age confirmation before watching that video. If you are already signed in, then Google will automatically collect your age-related information from your account but if you are not signed in, then YouTube will ask you to sign in to confirm your age and then only, you will be able to watch that video.

  1. This is outdated youtube just blocked watching nsfw videos on other sites, the only method that probably still works is downloading the video with a downloading software

    1. It is 2021 and only the video download method works. I use y2mate dot com.

      Youtube has gone full retard and put age verification even on videos without sexual content.

      1. Oh thank god you posted this because none of the other links they mentioned here worked. This one seems to be working for now. I literally just want to watch regular videos without having everything tracked all the damn time so I refuse to sign in. Thanks for the help.

    2. So, Youtube went full retard with age restriction, up to the point where you need to register a state ID or credit card to watch videos that you were really fine watching even without an account a few months back…downloading it is then.

    3. Bro i just want to watch a reaction video and its age restricted? I need an ID or credit card to verify?? seriously youtube?

    4. YouTube is getting worse by the day. There is no way I am ever giving my CC information or other personal documents to Google.
      Hopefully, a new platform will rise but that will be a hard thing to do since YouTube was pretty much first in line and now known by all around the world.

    5. As I get this age verification baloney all the time while I’m already logged in, it sure looks like a scam to get their hands on my personal documents, which they will then obviously sell on.

    6. install “TamperMonkey” extension”
      Then install “Greasy Fork” script “YouTube: Age Verification Bypass”

      1. wow! thanks Mike.
        I had sent Google my driving licence 7 days ago and still not verified. It says it takes 3 days max. Its a joke…maybe a scam too.
        Can confirm this method works 25 June 2021.
        Get Tampermonkey, and go to its dashboard, via installed extensions in browser (wee jigsaw piece top Right of browser).
        On top right look for a pls sign, next to installed userscripts, settings etc.
        Click the PLus to add new script and
        copy/paste the script from here:
        https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/375525-youtube-age-verification-bypass/code
        Done.

    7. Omg what is happening to this world
      Just like 3 years ago things were running fine,
      EVWRYTHING IS SO LIMITED SO RESTRICTED it scares me
      Old and popular videos are getting deleted because of dumb copyright claim thing , I cant download a thing in facebook, google search don’t even recognize some words anymore
      Where people gonna post their stuff ? How another YouTube will come when you buy a phone coming straight from the company that is related to YouTube directly…
      Videos are kept deleted without any trace ,like the were some hyper illegal stuff…. I have got a lot to talk about but I feel people dont even go to YouTube, google seriously isolated me from the world
      I feel the inky one having this problem but no,there are people who feel the same…but where
      When comments get deleted before even viewed,it may not even show up to others and just for you
      I hate how this world is changing for incomprehensible reasons…people are stil poor and can’t afford things normally,how about every game in playstore featuring premium versions that once was free and you will never think they will be purshable

    8. Why the hell is youtube doins this? Isn’t the requirement to make an account is to be at leas 13? Isn’t there a seperate website for children? I understand that they’ll ban NSFW stuff, but this is funky-horse-shrimp. Fix your site youtube, or die trying.

    9. Yep. There’s no point for youtube to block these videos, because if you are too young to watch the video, then you probably shouldn’t be on youtube at all. The average 13-17 year old isn’t scared of watching half of these videos. Maybe they should keep the nsfw warning, but they shouldn’t block you from watching the video if you want to watch it.

    10. All of these rely on watching youtube from an external source. Google had patched that, now they all lead to a page saying the video is age-restricted, and needs to be viewed on youtube.
      This article is now obsolete.

    11. I am so done with Youtube. They age restricted a video that didn’t contain any NSFW content in it. The video is named “Thorns but funni”. It used to work a week ago but now it is age restricted?!. I hope a new app arrives that lets you watch any videos without needing to put your credit card or any sh!t.

    12. Came here because I found a series of video game reviews that are all age-resticted. The funny bit? Some of the games are aimed at children and the guy who’s doing the reviews never swears or shows anything inappropriate… yet, all the videos are now “age-restricted”. It would be funny if it wasn’t sad.

      As of today (July 29th 2021) the only method that worked for the above videos wss the last one (PWN), but I’m sure Youtube is going to crack down and block that as well, eventually.

      People, the only way to kill youtube is to stop using it altogether and move to alternative platforms. There are a ton of them already, people simply aren’t moving exclusively there, so youtube isn’t losing any numbers. Look for your favourite content creators at one or more of the following video sharing platforms (and if they’re not there yet, ask them – if enough people ask, some content creators will start uploading to multiple platforms):

      – BitChute.com
      – BrandNewTube.com
      – Brighteon.com
      – Odysee.com
      – Rumble.com
      – StoryFire.com
      – UTreon.com

      I officially made the move and I’m not getting back on Youtube. I left a request to the few Youtubers I was following and, sadly, aren’t on any of the above yet, so I hope they will read/listen and move, but I’m just one person. You all can help. Start asking creators to MOVE, and then LEAVE youtube. That’s the only think that’ll make those a–oles rethink their strategy. Youtube can’t survive without viewers, it’s that simple.

      1. Thanks for the alt sites…too many people say go alt but do not give any other places to try out, simply dropping the ball after giving advice. Thanks.

      2. Whatever you think of YouTube and Google, many of the sites you list have quite dubious or downright despiccable content. Like bitchute, where on its first page a video is listed which maintains that people who are vaccinated are more prone to get covid. A ridiculous lie – more than 90% of people who end up in intensive care are NOT vaccinated. I do not know what pleasure derive from spreading these lies.

    13. None of these bypasses work anymore. YouTube and Google make it easy to watch p*rn but censors historical videos like the real Vietnam footage, respective protests such as a Buddhist monk self-immolation protesting that war and such….doubt that go to X*am*ter, one of the sites for p*rn and guess what is there? Google login to watch, rate, download and such….go figure..

    14. The best way to avoid the age restriction is still, for the videographer, to distribute a copy of his videos on another platform.

      My friend suggested this article to me to download age-restricted video however I am not a tech-savvy person I made mistake a few more times before I was able to do it. I actually use an online video downloader by acethinker to do the downloading process. And if they are hard to get videos I usually rely on some articles like this.

    16. On Android phone I use NewPipe apk, in the configuration you need to unlock age restrictions. Works for me so far.
      One issue, cannot cast anymore
