Today, my brother changed my Google+ name without asking. He has done this before and I fixed it by just changing it back. Turns out Google has a 3-time limit per year for how many times you can change your name. Now I'm stuck with "Poop" for my YouTube name for a year. FML

He might not have to get a second account. I'm guessing if he sends an email to support, he can explain the situation and have them change it back to the right name just one more time.

my brother changed my YouTube name to "waffle house warrior" when I was in middle school and I was so embarrassed. Now that I'm older I realize it's an awesome name and haven't changed it.


I just said the same thing and even if OP had it on automatic sign in he could of changed the setting so that it didn't keep signing him in without his password and if his brother had his password then he should of changed it, but I guess OP didn't learn after the first two times his brother did it to him.

No you still couldn't change the password, even if he was automatically logged in. You have to enter your regular password before changing it. I'm guessing his brother knew the answers to all the security questions, or was at least able to find out the answers.

See what I don't understand is, why the fuck is this even a thing? Why can you only change your name 3 times a year? I don't see that logic behind that. Fuck Google +

Well... you know how little brothers can be... assuming he is your little brother, cause if it's the other way around or he is past his 20s and is still into these kind of gags then that's just not good.
Anyway, you can go an get a new youtube account or something, no biggy.

Agree #5. Setting up pin numbers to block out people from seeing your stuff is easy. I have to say op deserved it since it happened before and she did nothing to lock it up. Of corse I don't completely know the full story.
