Why Can’t I Log Into YouTube Through Steam?

Episode 1816 (1:54:09)

Gabriel from Lake Elsinore, CA
Steam

Gabe is having trouble logging into YouTube using Steam's Overlay browser. He gets a browser not secure warning. But if he uses a different Gmail account, he can get in. Leo suspects that the Browser is using a format that YouTube no longer supports.  It turns out that YouTube has made a change that doesn't support the Overlay Browser. Here's a Steam note on it, and another here. There's a Google technote here as well. But what it comes down to is that YouTube doesn't trust the Steam browser and, as such, made the change on purpose due to security concerns.
