Fans confused as PewDiePie ‘loses’ YouTube verification on mobile

Fans of top YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg have been left confused after the 100 million+ subscribed channel has apparently been caught up in the verification debacle.

On September 19, YouTube rolled out a new verification system, which effectively removed the verified ‘tick’ badge from countless channels, in a move that left the community confused.

After significant backlash, CEO Susan Wojcicki said that they had “missed the mark” with the change, and the removal of verification badges was reverted on September 20.

PewDiePie’s channel did not lose verification, at least on desktop, but fans later noticed that on mobile he had no badge.

YouTube stated in a Tweet that “the checkmark has never appeared on mobile pages” and that it would be added soon, but it was pointed out that some YouTubers, including James Charles, did, in fact, have a verified tick on mobile, when they are searched for.

Another popular YouTuber, Shane Dawson, also has a verified badge when searched for on YouTube mobile.

YouTubeThe difference in search results for the two YouTubers on mobile has left fans confused.

The lack of a verified badge next to PewDiePie’s name on mobile immediately sparked backlash, as users were perhaps unaware that the verified tick is often not displayed on mobile anyway.

James Charles himself spoke out against YouTube’s new verification system (which has now been reverted), branding it “pointless”.

Jacksepticeye, a frequent collaborator of PewDiePie, is another who doesn’t have the verified box pop-up when his name is searched on mobile, despite having over 20 million subscribers.

He also spoke out on the topic, calling the move to unverify creators a “slap in the face.”

With YouTube now restoring verification to all those who lost it, and introducing a more robust system for granting verification, the main complaints about the change have been resolved.

The confusion was caused because of the inconsistency of some users having the verified badge on mobile, while PewDiePie – the most subscribed-to individual creator – and others, were left without.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
