True friendship has always been hard to come by, even back then when people have all the time in the world to look for the perfect friend who checks all the boxes. It is more so today when people don’t have the time, energy, or resources to actively hunt for people to befriend. In fact, people who do embark on such a mission will only be viewed as fools. After all, why would one search for a friend when there are so many better things to do in life? Granted, they’ll have to do all those better things alone, but we must sacrifice something, right?
Moreover, the law of attraction states the more you want something, the less it wants you. Just go with the flow, and do those things you’re sure will reap good results; success and happiness will follow.
But in the meanwhile, if you do have the time, energy, and resources to actively search for a friend or are just extremely lonely, what would you do? Where would you start your quest in this world full of opportunities and variety?
You could start at famous hangout places near your house where people your age are spotted. Trust us; a simple Google search will answer all your questions. Cafes are also brimming with opportunities if you feel confident enough to approach people.
Even online, there are a few categories to choose from.
There’s Tinder and Bumble for safe and fun interactions with a general intent to date. For friendship, the website Omegle or Snapchat works much better. Unfortunately, Omegle is known to feature highly inappropriate content; it’s part of why there’s no Omegle app, only a website.
It looks like Snapchat is the only option left. Don’t worry; it’s the best at the job, too. All you need is to add a few friends and acquaintances who live in your neighborhood and locality.
Then, head to the Quick-Add section on the app. It includes friends of your friends, people from your contacts, and people who live around where you live. Most of the time, you’ll find people from your school who you were too nervous to talk to. Well, here’s your chance!
You can think about what you’ll say online without any external pressure. Isn’t that cool?
In today’s blog, we’ll talk about whether or not you can hide your birthday on Snapchat. To learn all about it, stay with us till the end!
How to Hide Birthday on Snapchat
Snapchat is one of the top platforms in terms of privacy and security. Despite its reputation for data breaches (the platform has been a part of five data breaches since its launch), they’ve come quite far at securing its users’ data.
They’re also very mindful of their users’ experience on the platform. There are options to unfriend, block, and report the users who act inappropriately, are faking their identity, or just make you uncomfortable.
So, let’s now move on to the main topic of this blog: how to hide your birthday on Snapchat.
If you’re a new user of Snapchat, you might not know what a sweet ordeal Snapchat makes out of your birthday.
You get a ‘happy birthday’ snap from Snapchat, all the snaps you receive come with a little bow, and all your friends can see a little birthday cake next to your name. Isn’t that cute?
However, it might look like you want attention from some people. It’s understandable not to want everyone wishing you a ‘happy birthday’ wherever you go. It’s even worse when people remember it’s your birthday after seeing it on your Snapchat.
So, if you want to hide your birthday on Snapchat, we’ve got you.
Here’s how to hide your birthday on Snapchat
Step 1: Launch Snapchat on your smartphone and log in to your account.
Step 2: The first screen you’ll see 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 will take you to Your Profile. At the top right corner of the screen, you’ll see the gear icon of Settings.
Step 4: Tap on the fourth option from the top called Birthday. Under your birthday, you’ll see a tick box with the words This will add a [birthday cake] next to your name, display a special Birthday Charm, help Friends find and celebrate your birthday, and some other fun surprises… Changes can take up to 24hrs to take effect. By default, that box will be checked. Uncheck it, and your work here is done!
