How to Change the Birth Date in Facebook

There was probably something that happened when you first created your Facebook account and you had a mix up with your birth date. Facebook allows you to change your birth date, with just a few requirements.
Also bear in mind that you can also hide your birth date, if you don’t want it displayed on Facebook. In this article, we would be going over how to change your birth date on Facebook.


How Do I Change my Birthday and Choose who I share it with?

There’s a limit to how many times you can change your birthday. If you’ve recently changed it, you may have to wait a few days before you can edit it again.

To change your birthday:
  • From your News Feed, click your name in the top left.
  • Click About next to your name on your profile and select Contact and Basic Info in the left menu.
  • Scroll down and hover over Birth Date or Birth Year, and then click Edit to the right of the info you’d like to change.
  • Use the dropdown menus to change your birthday and use the audience selector to choose who can see it.
  • Click Save Changes.
You can change who can see your birthday by adjusting the audience. There are 2 audience selectors next to your birthday: one for the day and month and one for the year. Friends won’t get a notification about your upcoming birthday if you don’t share the day and month with them.
