Want to watch NSFW YouTube videos without logging in? Use these methods to help bypass YouTube’s age restriction.
If you want to watch an NSFW YouTube video, you have to be logged in to your Google account first. The problem is you can’t always log in. Maybe you’re on a shared computer, or it’s just too much hassle when you only want to watch a two-minute clip.
Google has really tightened up its restrictions on watching NSFW YouTube videos without signing in. But there are still a few options you can try to see if they work for you. Let’s take a look.
There are a couple of websites that let you watch age-restricted YouTube videos without signing in.
They’re both simple to use and work when you’re watching in a web browser, although they aren’t guaranteed to work with every video. Let’s cover them together, as both involve a small YouTube URL trick to bypass the block.
- Visit YouTube and load up the video you want to watch.
- If you’re prompted to sign in, click in the address bar at the top of your browser window instead.
- Highlight the part of the address that says youtube.com and change it to nsfwyoutube.com.
- Alternatively, change youtube.com to listenonrepeat.com.
- Hit Enter to continue.
- You’ll now be taken to either of those websites to watch your video. You won’t need to sign in to your account to view them.
Both sites work in the same way, although they can be a little hit-and-miss in terms of how effective they are. Some videos work on one site; others on the other. You might have to try both. If your video won’t play in NSFWYouTube, there’s an extra Click HERE button you can try that will attempt to reload it.
We’d recommend ListenOnRepeat as the best option. It’s a better looking website with more features. You can create an account to save or favorite the videos you like, and also join in the chat on the site’s Discord channel.
NSFWYouTube, by contrast, has no extra features. It’s also a more rough and ready website and has a tendency to show some pretty sketchy ads. On the plus side, it doesn’t pester you with irrelevant YouTube recommendations.
2. Try the Invidious YouTube Client
Next up, try the alternative YouTube browser client Invidious. This runs in any web browser, just like regular YouTube does, so you can search for your videos and play them as normal.
If videos don’t play in the standard browser window, try clicking the Download button to the side. This opens the video in a new tab, and seems to be very effective at bypassing age restrictions.
3. Install a New YouTube App
If you find that NSFWYouTube is not working anymore and need an alternative, the next option you can try is to install a new YouTube app on your laptop or phone. This is obviously less convenient, as it means you cannot watch the videos in your browser, but it can work well.
FreeTube for Windows, Mac, and Linux, along with NewPipe and SkyTube—both for Android—are among the best apps you can use. They’re all free, and all open source, which should help relieve any security concerns you might have. They’re easy to use—just search and play your videos as you would using the normal YouTube tools.

4. Hack the YouTube URL
There’s one more way to try and watch NSFW YouTube videos without logging in.
As with the first option, this method involves changing the address to the video in your browser’s address bar. But this time it doesn’t take you away from the official YouTube website.
Changes to YouTube’s age verification system mean that this approach may no longer work, but we’ll leave the instructions here as it may be worth a try as a last resort.
- Load up the age-restricted video you want to watch.
- Click in the address bar in your browser.
- The URL will begin with www.youtube.com/watch?… Highlight the word watch and change it to embed/ so the address now begins www.youtube.com/embed/?…
- Hit Enter and the video will fill your browser window. Just click Play to watch it.
This is one of the areas that Google has focussed on when restricting videos. You’re now likely to be redirected to the YouTube site where you have to log in. Sometimes you’ll see a YouTube Playback ID error, which you might be able to fix using these tips for when YouTube isn’t working.
A Few More YouTube Tricks
With Google tightening up the age restrictions, there’s no guarantee that these tools will work, or for how long. If you find yourself watching a lot of blocked videos, at some point you’re just going to have to bite the bullet and verify your age.
Watching NSFW videos without signing in isn’t the only way to bypass some of YouTube’s restrictions. You can also download specific portions of videos, or skip sponsored segments in the middle of clips.
