How do I get it off??? When I go into my settings, under my birthday I have nothing, but it still shows beside my name in messages and on my profile. This makes me feel extremely uncomfortable, how can it be removed? Please help, thanks!

I have this problem as well. I feel it compromises confidentiality, as it could help someone with ill intentions to identify a survivor.  If an abusive family member has the birthdate of a person they wish to threaten or stalk, they can simply do a search of that birthdate on the forum to find that person.  I would like this taken off my profile as I do not feel safe with this additional means of identification attached to my profile.

Hello All,

 

On your profiles there's two birthday fields, one which is public, should you wish to put your birthday up - the other is the field completed when you joined and is only viewable to moderators and the actual members themselves.

 

To remove the public birthday from your profile- go to your name (e,g, for me "John") in top right corner, click on it, then click "My Profile", then click, "Edit my Profile" from here you can scroll to "My Profile Information" where you can edit (or remove) your publicly viewable birthday - the other birthday which everyone can see on there own profile, is the date you entered when you joined, and is only viewable to yourself and moderators.

 

Regards,

 

John

I feel dumb because I followed the steps and I still don't see it. The only one I see is the one that I've made not visible.
