What is a "verified name" on YouTube?
Ive seen this on a couple popular channels and i was wondering
YouTube's help screen says:"Verify your account by phoneWhen signing up for a YouTube account, you may be asked to provide a phone number for account verification. We'll send you a verification code via voice call or SMS.Once you've verified your account, you will be able to upload videos longer than 15 minutes, as long as your account is in good standing."Unless there's more to it, a verified user has the benefit of posting videos of longer length. There is some more info on why they verify, if you like to read the rest of the page:https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/171664?hl=en&ref_topic=3024170
I thinks its where they have got their YouTube account links with their Google Plus account, but I'm not sure.
