How to Change Birthday on Facebook


Hi. I’m Max Dalton, and in this video I’m going
to talk through how to change your birthday on Facebook. While it may feel like the birthday you entered
initially on your Facebook profile is chiseled into stone — it’s not. You have to do a little bit of digging, but
it’s definitely possible to change your birthday. However, after you change it, you have to
wait at least a few days before you’ll be able to change it back. Additionally, if you change it too many times
on too frequent of a basis, your profile may start to attract attention because of suspicious
activity. And now, let’s talk through the steps to change
the birthday on your Facebook profile using the Facebook mobile app for iPhone, iPad,
Android, and Microsoft mobile devices. Step 1. Launch the Facebook app. You’ll land on your Facebook home screen. Step 2. Tap the “Menu” icon in the lower right corner
of the screen. The Menu icon looks like three horizontal
lines. A menu appears. Step 3. Tap “View Your Profile” at the top. Your profile is displayed on the screen. Step 4. Tap “Edit Profile” in the row of options that
appear directly beneath your profile picture. The Edit Profile screen appears. Step 5. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen, and
then tap “Edit Your Account Info.” The About screen appears. Step 6. Scroll down to the Basic Info section, and
then tap the “Edit” icon that appears to the right of your birthday. The Edit Profile screen appears, and your
birthday information is listed at the top in the Birthday section. Step 7. Tap the drop-down arrows to the right of the
month, date, or year associated with your birthday to bring up a selector on the bottom
of the screen that will let you modify any of those. A note will appear directly beneath the Birthday
section informing you that you can only change information associated with your birthday
a few times per year. Step 8. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and
tap the blue “Save” button. The changes made to your birthday information
will be saved and automatically reflected on your account for anyone who can see them. Now let’s walk through how to change your
Facebook birthday through facebook.com. Step 1. Open your Web browser, navigate to facebook.com,
and then log into your account if prompted. You’ll arrive at your Facebook home page. Step 2. Click your name that appears in either the
blue bar along the top of the screen, or at the top of the menu along the left side of
the screen. A screen displaying your Facebook profile
information opens. Step 3. Click “About” in the row of options that appear
to the right of your profile picture. The About section now appears on the lower
part of the window. Step 4. Click “Contact and Basic Info” in the menu
that appears on the left side of the screen. The Contact and Basic Info screen appears
on the right side of the window. Step 5. Scroll down to the Basic Information section
on the right side of the screen, and then hold your cursor over your birthday. An Edit link appears to the right of your
birthday. Step 6. Click the “Edit” link to the right of your
birthday. Your birthday information is now editable. You can change the month, date, or year associated
with your birthday. Step 7. Make the necessary changes to your birthday,
and then click the blue “Save Changes” link. A note appears that you can only change your
birthday a limited number of times. Additionally, you’ll need to click to place
a check mark in the option beneath the note asking you to confirm your age. Step 8. Click the blue “Save Changes” button. The change you made to your birthday will
be saved, and will automatically be reflected on your Facebook profile. Congratulations! You now know how to change the birthday associated
with your Facebook profile. Thanks for watching. Click the video link on the right side of
