Google Plus Account Creation Problem

Postby ahippo » Fri Jul 15, 2011 2:13 am UTC

My brother invited me and my sister to Google + recently. So I heard she created an account. So I decided to. And when I try to create a Google + account it tells me "You must be over a certain age to use this feature." ... What? My sister is 3 years younger than me. How does that work that she was able to make one if I can't? I'm 17 so I don't think it's really an age issue. Even so I tried to go to my Google account and check my age just in case. But I cannot find my age anywhere. So I really don't understand what to do. Any help?

You do have to be 18 to use Google+.
Depending on whether they think they know your age already (I think that things like your YouTube account has it) they may ask you for your age when you sign up to Google+.
Did your sister just lie about her age?

She told me she didn't. I don't know.

She lied to you, then.

(Alternately, she thought you meant "did you lie about your age while signing up for google+". If she already had a google account, and lied about her age when creating it, then the g+ registration won't ask again.)
