Why Does YouTube Keep Signing Me Out?
YouTube keep signing you out? We assume it is since you’re here looking for a solution to this problem. If you’re here, this means the following:
You have signed into your account and want to comment on something, create a playlist, upload a video, or just watch some videos. However, when you go to do so, it asks you to sign in even though you already did. You sign in, try again, and you get the same error. This loop seems to never end.
Every time you watch a video, YouTube signs you out.
