Student YouTube unblocked by Google


[15 May 2014]

Update 19 May: Google have informed us that they are in the process of removing the suspension on student YouTube accounts.

We have identified that Google have blocked access to YouTube for some of our UoB student Google accounts.

As yet, we do not know why this has happened.

Access to Gmail, Drive and Calendar is not affected.

The issue has been logged with Google, and we will update this news item and the IT status page with any further information.

If a student is blocked and wishes to access YouTube to view content they can do so but must not be signed in. This may require using another web browser or accessing YouTube via an 'incognito window' in Chrome.
