How to access Youtube when it is down
Youtube can be accessed after switching the browser to the incognito mode when using Google Chrome or Private Mode when using Mozilla FireFox, this is the option to browse privately.
Incognito mode on Mozila Firefox
Firefox clears your search and browsing history when you quit the app or close all Private Browsing tabs and windows. While this doesn’t make you anonymous to websites or your internet service provider, it makes it easier to keep what you do online private from anyone else who uses this computer.
How Incognito mode works
When you first open a new Incognito window, you’re creating a new Incognito browsing session. Any Incognito windows you open after that are part of the same session. You can end that Incognito session by closing all open Incognito windows.
In Incognito, none of your browsing history, cookies and site data, or information entered in forms are saved on your device. This means your activity doesn’t show up in your Chrome browser history, so people who also use your device won’t see your activity. Websites see you as a new user and won’t know who you are, as long as you don’t sign in.
If you’re browsing in Chrome Incognito mode, you are, by default, not signed into any accounts or sites.
Your school, Internet Service Provider, or any parental tracking software may be able to see your activity. You can check if your Chrome browser is managed.
You can choose to block third-party cookies when you open a new incognito window. Learn more about cookies.
