Add or change your birthday on Google+

When you sign up for a Google Account, you may be asked to add your birthday. Knowing your birthday helps us use age-appropriate settings for your account. For example, minors may see a warning when we think they’ve found a site they may not want to see.

Add or edit your birthday

Important: Changing your birthday in Google+ will change it on all Google products.

Hide or show your birthday

You don’t need to show your birthday to others unless you want to. By default, the people in your Google+ circles can see the day you were born, but not the year. If you’d like to keep your birthday private, you can use your settings to choose who sees that information on your Google+ profile.
