If you entered the wrong date of birth when creating your Facebook account, you can always solve this problem by changing your date of birth on Facebook. We’ll show you how to do this on the Facebook website and mobile app.
When it comes to changing your date of birth on Facebook, keep in mind that you can only do it a few times. If you change your date of birth multiple times, Facebook will consider this to be suspicious activity. This can have unpleasant consequences, such as Facebook blocking your account. However, even at this point, there is still a way to change it again, which we will explain below.
Change Your Birthday on the Facebook Website
If you are using a Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer, please use the official Facebook website to change your date of birth.
To get started, open the Facebook site in a web browser on your computer. If you are not logged in, please log in to your account.
When Facebook loads, click the profile icon in the upper right corner of the site.
On your profile page, from the tabs bar beneath your name, select the “About” tab.
From the “About” tab options, select “Contact and Basic Info.”
Scroll down the right pane to the “Basic Info” section. Here, next to your birthday, click the pencil icon to edit your birthday.
You can now select a new birthday from the available drop-down menus. Use these menus to specify a new day, month, or year.
When you’ve entered the new birthday options, activate the “I Confirm that I am N Years Old” (where N is your age) option. Then, click “Save.”
Facebook has now updated your birthday information!
Change Your Birthday on an iPhone, iPad, or Android App
Use the official Facebook app to change your birthday information on portable devices like iPhone, iPad and Android.
To use this method, first launch the Facebook application installed on your iPhone, iPad, or Android phone.
Note: The following steps are for the Facebook Android application. The steps for iPhone and iPad are slightly different.
In the upper right corner of the Facebook application, click on the three horizontal lines.
Facebook will open a “Menu” screen. Here, tap your profile at the top.
Scroll down your profile screen, and right above your friend list, tap the “See Your About Info” option.
Scroll down the “About” screen to the “Basic Info” section. Then, tap “Edit” next to “Basic Info.”
In the “Edit Basic Info” screen’s “Birthday” section, enter your new birthday details. Tap the “Day,” “Month,” and “Birth Year” drop-down menus to enter these details.
Then, enable the “I Confirm that I am N Years Old” (where N is your age) option right beneath the drop-down menus. Finally, from the top-right corner of the app, select “Save.”
Your Facebook birthday is now updated.
How to Change Your Facebook Birthday After Exceeding the Limit
If Facebook is preventing you from changing your date of birth because you’ve tried too many times, there is still a way to ask the site to change your date of birth.
This can be accomplished through a form provided by Facebook on their website. Using this form, you can send a request to Facebook to change the date of birth on your profile. Then Facebook accepts or rejects your request.
To submit a birthday change request, open a web browser on a Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chromebook computer and go to the birthday Request a Birthday Change on the Facebook website.
On this page, use the drop-down menu under the “Date of Birth” section to specify your new birthday. Then, click on the “Reason for this change” drop-down menu and select the reason for changing the date of birth.
Finally, click “Submit” at the bottom of this form to send your request to Facebook.
Facebook will consider your request and respond accordingly.
It’s about changing Facebook’s birthday. Facebook allows you to correct incorrectly entered birthday details, which is great!
In addition to birthday details, people can also find a lot of information about you on your Facebook profile. To control this data sharing, consider changing some Facebook privacy settings.
