While creating or signing up for an e-mail account, the website asks you to enter your date of birth. This is due to the reason that it will provide you with age-suitable settings. For instance, if you are minor, it will restrict you from the websites and stuff meant for the majors.
Here is one thing to note every e-mail account requires a date of birth, and we cannot create one without providing it. Moreover, it is impossible to delete your birth date from your e-mail account. You can only edit and change it from who can view it.
Sometimes, people enter the wrong date of birth (DOB) and wish to sort it out with the correct one while signing up.
Are you some people?
Don’t worry! In this blog, we have curated a comprehensive step-by-step guide to editing and changing your date of birth settings in Gmail.
Here we go!
