Hey YouTube, I Don’t Want To Use My Full Name

It’s been a while since I logged in to my personal YouTube account, but when I did so a little while ago, I found out that YouTube wants me to start using my full name.

I hadn’t heard about this before, but it looks like they’re finally aggregating information from my different accounts to suggest that I use my full name as I entered it on my now defunct Google+ account.

Fortunately, I was able to decline and continue using my username for now. However, when I clicked “I don’t want to use my full name,” I had to pass through one more hurdle before continuing to my home page.

Sadly, I suspect this is just the first step. It may become harder and harder to keep using my username in the future.
