True friendship has always been hard to come by, even back when people had all the time in the world to search for the perfect friend who ticked all the boxes. This is especially true today when people don’t have the time, energy, or resources to actively seek out people to befriend.
People who embark on such a mission will only be seen as fools. After all, why look for a friend when there are so many better things to do in life? Sure, they’ll have to do all those better things alone, but we have to sacrifice something, don’t we?
Also, the law of attraction states that the more you want something, the less it wants you. Just go with the flow and do the things you know will work. success and happiness will follow.
In today’s blog, we’ll see whether or not you can hide your birthday on Snapchat. To find out, stay with us until the end!
How to Hide Birthday on Snapchat
Snapchat is one of the best platforms when it comes to privacy and security. Despite its reputation for data breaches (the platform has been part of five data breaches since its launch), they have made a lot of progress in securing its users’ data.
They are also very attentive to the experience of their users on the platform. There are options to delete, block, and report users who act inappropriately, fake their identity, or just make you feel uncomfortable.
So, now let’s move on to the main topic of this blog: how to hide your birthday on Snapchat.
If you are a new Snapchat user, you might not know what sweet ordeal Snapchat makes for your birthday.
You get a “happy birthday” snap from Snapchat, all the snaps you receive come with a little bow, and all your friends can see a birthday cupcake next to your name. Isn’t that cute?
However, it may seem like you want to get some people’s attention. It’s natural if you don’t want strangers to continually be shouting “happy birthday” at you. It’s even worse when people remember it’s your birthday after seeing it on your Snapchat.
Hide your birthday on Snapchat
Open Snapchat on your smartphone and log into your account.
The first screen you will see is the Snapchat camera. Near the top left corner of the page, you’ll notice your Bitmoji icon. Press it.
This will take you to Your profile. In the upper right corner of the screen, you will see the gear icon Settings.
Tap the fourth option from the top called Birthday. Under your birthday you will see a checkbox with the words This will add a [birthday cake] next to your name, display a special birthday charm, help your friends find and celebrate your birthday, and a few other fun surprises… Changes may take up to 24 hours to take effect. By default, this box will be checked. Uncheck it and your job here is done!
