Youtube Making Me Signin

On my Roku 3, everytime I go to my youtube app it prompts me to sign in.   Every day this has been happening for about a week now.   I have searched for "youtube" and I am 6 pages in and no one else has posted about this.
Is there any fix for this?  Or do I just have to sign in every day?

Try removing the app. Then reboot the Roku. Then add the app again.

On you browser, remove all cookies and Local Storage for all domains containing “google” or “youtube” in it. Then, log in to YouTube’s Website.

Next, launch the app. Follow the instructions. See how long it remembers this time.

If you are talking about YouTube TV, this is happening to me. Uninstalling/reinstalling does not fix the problem.

Uninstall/reinstall? Or uninstall/reboot/reinstall? Just making sure.

I guess I am not sure whether it is YouTube or YouTube TV, I'll have to check when I get home.
I'll try the reboot option you've recommended.  Thank you.

Are you paying $40/month for live TV via the app? If so, it’s YouTube TV. If not, it’s YouTube.

Re: Youtube Making Me Signin

It was indeed just plain old YouTube.
I uninstalled it from my Roku, then did a system update, then reinstalled the channel.
After the first signin prompt, I've been good ever since!! Thank you!!
