How to Get Rid of the "Use Your Real Name" YouTube Popup

Posted by Random Terrain, in Internet_Related 14 May 2013 · 3,249 views

Sometimes that irritating popup has a link that will let you close it, but most of the time it's not there. If you're sick of that thing popping up almost every time you go to watch a video, all you need is the Firefox add-on Adblock Plus and the filter below. If you don't already have Adblock Plus, add it to Firefox, then add this custom filter:

Once you add that filter, the "Use Your Real Name" YouTube Popup should be gone (at least until YouTube changes the address). If YouTube ever changes the address, I'll try to remember to update this blog entry with the updated filter.

I get that damn thing all the time even though I am using my real name:

Arghhh. Sent them a support request about it. Their response:

If you don't want to use your full name, Just click "I don't want to use my full name" when you see the prompt.


I suspect Deepthi doesn't understand the use of the Jr. suffix in a name.

Except "I don't want to use my full name" isn't there to click on most of the time, you YouTube morons.

You get a message similar to "Come on try it. You know you want to. Just try it one time. If you don't like it, you can always go back."

I didn't believe my Camp Counselor when he said that - why should I believe YouTube?

This worked great for a while, but now that name changing popup is back on youtube. They got wise to your cunning wiles, Random Terrain.
