Bypass YouTube Age Restriction

In this guide, we talk about several ways to bypass YouTube age restriction policies. If YouTube regards a clip to be age-sensitive, they will require you to log into a Google account to prove your age. But what if you don’t have a google account or you don’t want one? Thankfully there are several ways to watch the video clip without signing in.

Bypass YouTube Age Restriction

 

Option 1: Bypass YouTube Age Restriction with NSFW

This option is by far the fastest way to override the age restriction and requires little more than adding a few letters to the start of the URL. The letters NSFW stand for ‘Not Safe For Work’. With this option you should be aware that as you have changed the URL. you will be changing websites. The instructions below will have the video playing in no time.

  1.  Got to the restricted video clip as shown below.
  2. Youtube-clip-restriction
  3. In the address bar, you will see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApRGNwSvsnI
  4. You want to insert the letters NSFW between the www. and youtube.com as shown below.
  5. https://www.NSFWyoutube.com/watch?v=ApRGNwSvsnI
  6. Press Enter to watch the clip.

Please note that if you are using a mobile device the URL in the address bar might be different. For example, the above address on a mobile would look like http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ApRGNwSvsnI which you should change to http://m.NSFWyoutube.com/watch?v=ApRGNwSvsnI

Option 2: Bypass Age Restriction with YouTube Embed

The embed option overrides the YouTube age restriction rules that apply to clips by changing the URL to an embedded link. Embeddable links do not have any restrictions associated with them so the clip should play. Please note the clip may play in full screen with this method.

  1.  Got to the restricted video clip as shown below.
  2. how to get passed youtube age restriction
  3. In the address bar, you will see the address of your video which should look something like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApRGNwSvsnI
  4. You should delete watch?v= from the link and replace with embed/
  5. The new embeddable link should look like this https://www.youtube.com/embed/ApRGNwSvsnI
  6. Click Play.

Option 3: Bypass YouTube Age Restriction using Listen On Repeat

Once again we are hoping to bypass the YouTube age restrictions by changing the link. This time we are using the listen on repeat feature of YouTube to get around the restrictions.

  1.  Got to the restricted video clip as shown below.
  2. Youtube-clip-restriction
  3. In the address bar, you will see the address of your video which should look something like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApRGNwSvsnI
  4. Add the word repeat to the link after the word youtube so that it looks like the link below
  5. https://www.youtuberepeat.com/embed/ApRGNwSvsnI
  6. Click Play.

Please note that if the video clip does not play automatically using this method. You may still be able to play the clip by using the search box at the top of the Listen On Repeat website to find the clip you want.

Option 4: Use a Proxy Website to Remove Age Restrictions

Although it is possible to use proxy websites to view censored or age-restricted content. We feel this is the least safe method for viewing age-restricted Youtube content.  There are a number of Proxy Sites you can use, however, we do not advise using this method and provide instructions that you may only use at your own risk.

  1.  Got to the restricted video clip as shown below.
  2. Youtube-clip-restriction
  3. In the address bar, you will see the address of your video which should look something like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApRGNwSvsnI
  4. You should open a new tab by clicking the plus symbol as shown below.
  5. Type https://www.proxysite.com/ into the address bar
  6. Then copy the YouTube link from the previous address bar into the Enter URL box on the Proxysite website as shown below.
  7. Free Proxy Site
  8. Click GO

Option 5: Bypass YouTube Age Restriction using PWN

Much like the first option, we can bypass the YouTube Age restrictions by adding a few letters to the start of the URL.  The letters PWN prefix the word YouTube in the clips address as shown in the instructions below.

  1.  Got to the restricted video clip as shown below.
  2. Youtube-clip-restriction
  3. In the address bar, you will see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApRGNwSvsnI
  4. You want to insert the letters PWN between the www. and youtube.com as shown below.
  5. https://www.PWNyoutube.com/watch?v=ApRGNwSvsnI
  6. Press Enter to watch the clip.

You should note you changing websites from YouTube.com to deturl.com with this method.

Option 6: Bypass YouTube Age Restriction using FreeTube

FreeTube is an open source free app that you can download and install on your computer. It allows you to view YouTube content without being tracked or age restricted by YouTube.
