I have more than one YT account. I have one for uploading family stuff. Another just for dash cam stuff,etc etc.

Although I cleared the cache/history etc on my device, google is still recognising my device-it shows my YT user names and asks if I want to sign in to Google with these. There is not a no button. How do I prevent that?

 I try to sign in with new  details for a YT account (that I created previously on a public device). Google recognises my own device. My other account user names are there. I cannot get rid of them off the device.

With most other websites you can put your user name in and sign in without any of these issues. Google just wants to link all your accounts.

There must be other people on YT with say one account for their business, one for home vids, etc and so on. There must be a way to keep them unconnected.

It's like being in N Korea (laughing)

Thanks James for the link. I've had a look, but need to study it in more detail.

As an aside, one thing that frustrates a little is how desktops and devices differ in how sites display.

I have had a quick look at YT account settings (using my phone as  hot spot). The pc really struggles now though-running xp! , but so do my eyes when using the S5.
