Does it matter that everyone knows your birthday?

Should I stop wishing friends Happy Birthday on Social Media? Are birthday wishes a security risk?

Banks use your date of birth to verify your identity – so why display it on social media for all to see? Okay it’s nice to get lots of birthday greetings from your followers – it makes you feel good. 

At least consider giving the wrong date – for example – if your birthday is 23rd February 1986 why not change it to 23rd February 1966? It might make you 20 years older but you’d still get birthday wishes on the right date, give you peace of mind and be a little more secure online!

Your real friends know how old you are . . .
