If you’re wondering how to hide your birthday on Snapchat, then we’ve got you covered.

Most things on Snapchat are temporary. For instance, your story disappears after a day, chats might be set to delete after viewing, and you can also send one-view Snaps. However, your profile is very much visible, with details like your birth date and zodiac sign. And on your birthday, you also get a cake emoji next to your username. Plus, before your birthday, you will be visible in upcoming birthdays.

Thankfully, if you don’t want to share your details and manage your privacy better, you can choose to hide your birthday. In this guide, we will show you how to do that.

Quick Answer

To hide your birthday on Snapchat: Go to profile > Go to Settings > Birthday > Turn off the Birthday Party

That’s it. Your date of birth will no longer be visible on your profile. Please note that this will  disable the birthday cake that appears next to your profile on your birthday. Your friends will not be notified on your special day and nor will you be visible under ‘upcoming birthdays.’

Can you change your birthday on Snapchat?

Yes, you can change your birth date on Snapchat. All you have to do is – 

Go to your profile > Go to Settings > Select ‘Birthday’ > click on the date > Change the date > Continue > Okay. 

That’s it. 


To sum up, you can easily hide your birthday on Snapchat. The changes may take some time to reflect on the app. Once done, the cake icon beside your name on your birthday will no longer be there and thus your friends can no longer see your birthday. Your Snapchat Birthday Charm will not be visible to them as well. However, you can still see the birthday of your friends unless they have also chosen to keep the birthday private.
