Hide Your Birthday on Facebook

by Ankit on August 7, 2011

Facebook is one of the best social networking sites. However as far as privacy is concerned I would say that it does not give the adequate privacy to its users. Although it gives the users an option to change the privacy settings. Many times it happens that you don’t want your friends to know your birthday. Especially if you are a girl and don’t want to reveal your age. But in this digital age where we are connected to one another through social networks its quiet difficult to hide your birth date on Facebook.

Today I am going to guide you on how to Hide Your Birthday on Facebook. Hide Your Birthday on facebook To be honest it’s a very simple process, all you need to do is to follow the steps that I have written below:

  1. Login to your facebook account.
  2. Now go to your Facebook homepage and click “Edit Profile” button on the top-right corner of your profile.
  3. If you have activated the timeline feature then you need to click on “Update Info” button available at Left Corner of your timeline page.
  4. Now go to “Basic Info” and Click on “Edit” option.
  5. Select your preferred display option in the drop-down menu next to your birthday. You can choose to display your full birthday, show just the month and day, or you can hide your birthday completely.
  6. After doing the changes , click “Save Changes”.

Note that if you choose the option Do not show my birthday in my profile, then your friends will not receive reminders when it’s approaching. But if don’t want them to see your exact age but want them to receive reminders then, you will need to at least make the month and day visible.

So this was all about hiding your birthday on facebook. Feel free to share your views in the comments section below.
