Snapchat is a great platform for the younger generations to meet new, like-minded people if they don’t prefer Tinder or Bumble or are too young for those platforms. It’s a safe place for potential friendships and relationships if you’re ready to face more than a few disappointments. We aren’t saying there’s a lot of scope for disappointments on Snapchat; it’s just that with top-notch privacy, people often take advantage by making up fake identities. It’s not unavoidable as long as you take the necessary precautions and don’t end up making a fake identity yourself.
Whenever you connect with someone on Snapchat who you’ve never seen or heard about in real life, it’s a good idea to immediately ask for a recent snap and do the same. That way, both of you have gotten the initial suspicion out of the way to avoid any unpleasantness.
Next, ask them a few generic questions and see if their answers sound genuine or made-up. No one can teach you this; knowledge in these topics only comes from experience. However, you’ll most probably feel it if they’re lying.
If you don’t want to be that calculative, you can avoid this whole thing entirely. For that, you’ll need to connect with people you already know about.
You might think you don’t have many friends, but you know many people. Kids from your neighborhood, the new family that just moved in down the street, the students at your school. You’ve seen them and heard their names but don’t know them.
Or, you could just go to the Quick-Add section and check out the people there. It contains people from your contacts, people with whom you have mutual friends, people who’ve recently joined Snapchat, and those near your location. As a bonus, Snapchat also tried to add people you might know, but that’s not very reliable.
Anyhow, don’t forget to have fun on Snapchat!
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about whether or not you can change your birthday on Snapchat after crossing the limit for it.
Is It Possible to Change Birthday on Snapchat After Limit?
Almost all social media platforms have the option to enter your birthday. This is for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, this allows the platform to present you with content other users your age seem to like. Secondly, some platforms like Snapchat also like to do a small something for your birthday, like a wish and a small change just for you.
For example, Snapchat, in particular, sends you a snap wishing you a happy birthday. All your friends on Snapchat can see a birthday cake next to your name the whole day.
Your bitmoji selfie will change to one where you’re blowing a horn. All the snaps you’ll receive will have a bow tie to give the impression of a present. Isn’t that so cool and thoughtful?
Birthday changing limit on Snapchat
Let’s say that you accidentally entered the wrong birthday upon signing in but didn’t pay much attention to it. Now that you’ve learned all the things Snapchat does on your birthday, you want to correct it.
Most platforms don’t allow you to change your birthday at all. Fortunately for you, Snapchat does. However, you can only change your birthday on Snapchat a limited number of times. After about five or six times, you’ll receive a warning that you won’t ever be able to change your birthday on the platform again if you enter it wrong this time.
We think it’s more than fair. How many tries could it take a person to enter their birthday correctly? Certainly not more than five.
We’re sorry to say that it isn’t possible if you want to change your birthday on Snapchat after you’ve reached the limit. But if you haven’t crossed the limit yet, then we’ve got you.
Here’s how to change your birthday on Snapchat
Step 1: Launch Snapchat on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: The first screen you’ll land on is the Snapchat Camera. Near the top left corner of the page, you’ll notice the icon of your bitmoji. Tap on it.
Step 3: This’ll take you to Your Profile. At the top-right corner, you’ll see the gear icon of Settings.
Step 4: Tap on the fourth option from the top called Birthday.
Step 5: On the birthday page, you’ll see a warning saying Choose carefully. So, you can’t say you weren’t warned. Tap on your birthday.
Step 6: When you do that, a calendar dial will appear, and you can set your birthday correctly this time!
In the end
As we end this blog, let’s recap all we’ve discussed today.
If you’ve accidentally entered the wrong birthday on Snapchat, don’t worry; it happens to the best of us. Thankfully, Snapchat allows you to change your birthday a few times, so you can easily correct your mistake.
However, there’s a strong limit. After five or six times, you won’t be able to change your birthday, so it’s best to be careful when doing it.
