hide your birthday on Facebook®

When setting up an account on Facebook®, you are asked to enter your birthday. Many of us fill in the information without thinking much about it, until the date shows up on our page for everyone to see. Actually, the default setting for who can see your birthday is “Friends of Friends,” which means you really don’t know who is seeing this personal information. If you want to hide your birthday on Facebook®, read the instructions below to learn how to do it.

Hiding Birthday Information on Facebook®:

  1. Launch your Internet browser, go to the Facebook® page and log in to your account.
  2. Click on your name to get on your Facebook® timeline page.
  3. Switch to the “About” tab under the timeline photo.
  4. Click on the “Edit” button in the “Basic Information” section.
  5. In the “Birthday” section, you’ll see two dropdowns on the right side - one for the day and month, and one for the year. You can set the visibility for each of these separately.
  6. Click on each dropdown and select “Only Me” and then click on the “Save” button at the bottom. Now your birthday information will be visible only to you.
