How to Change Your Birthday on Facebook:

If you have exceeded your limit of changing the date of birth then change the birthday on Facebook after the limit,

Step 1: First, log in with your Facebook Login credentials.

Step 2: Now, go to the Facebook help link.

Step 3: Once you’re on the page just select the year, month & date, and the reason you’re changing the date of birth for your Facebook profile.


Make sure you are putting the exact date of birth this time as Facebook may ask you to submit proof for this.

You would not be able to change the birthday on your Facebook profile until 14 days after the last change.

Facebook Birthday Change Limit:

You’ll get into trouble if you have changed the birthdate more than 3 times, after that you have to follow the official way to change it again.

On Facebook, you can change your date of birth, but it has some limits; you can only change it sometimes. Facebook allows users to change their birthday once every two weeks, and you can only change your birthday three times overall.

Once you have changed your account’s birthday three times, you can only change it again if you contact Facebook’s customer support team; there is no guarantee that they will change it.

You are not allowed to change a date that signals you were younger than 13 when you created the account; if you do so, then Facebook may ban your account.

How Many Days it’s Locked for after the Change:

Sometimes you may have mistakenly saved the wrong date on the birthdate field on your FB profile and wondering how to change the date. Facebook takes the birthdate as sensitive information in case of account recovery.

If you have made these mistakes for the sake of privacy then there are other ways to prevent that without changing the birthdate every time.

After 2 weeks or 14 days have passed, you can again edit the birthdate on Facebook. But, the limit is 3 times that you can edit the age for a Facebook profile from your end.

What should I do if I can’t change my date of birth on Facebook:

In case of an emergency, if you are thinking that your friends will be notified of your wrong birthday then you can set the date of birth privacy to ‘Only Me‘ and this will stop Facebook from notifying a wrong Birthday alert to your friends.
