 YouTube is introducing handles to make it easier for people to find and connect with each other.

Hi Virtual Fly Brain,

You can now choose your channel’s handle.

As a reminder, in most cases, if you already have a personalized URL for your channel, we’ve reserved this for you as your handle. If you’re happy with that handle then you’re all set. If you want a different handle from the one we reserved, you can change it. If you don’t already have a personalized URL today, you’ll also be able to choose a handle. Keep in mind that handles are unique to each channel, so once a handle has been chosen, it can’t be selected by anyone else.


In the future, your handle will be how people mention you in comments, Community posts, and more.
