I noticed when I was "Editing my Details" that it shows your Date of birth. It also has an option to publicly display this. I didn't turn it on, but I thought it was unsafe to post that on ?
Here is a picture....
I was wondering as well; I have mine set to show only the day and month I was born (not year) I never knew where this info was displayed nor did I take the time to think Do I really want people to know my birthday? I'm going to turn it off now. Thank you for reminding me!
Why should we hide our age? I mean sure it makes you somewhat safer, but no one can find you or anything if we don't post our image or town or whatever?!?
that is a great question!
One reason is that "bad" people abuse this information. Often they "target" younger children due to their innocence and just wanting to have fun & friends. Once they have an idea of your age or age range, they wil pretend to be the same age. - Please do not let this frighten you, however. As long as you keep your personal information just that - personal! you should be safe and sound.
Another reason is COPPA does not allow the posting of any personal information (your town, phone #, real name, etc) under the age of 13 (I believe, someone can clarify if wrong).
It's all in your best interest, letting one piece of info slip can lead to another and soon people have a good picture of who you are and where you live! & we don't want that falling into the wrong hands.
