Often times when you fill-up online registrations forms, due to hurry or any other problem, you make mistake to enter your DOB – Date of Birth. I have seen many users who mistakenly input wrong DOB and later they become unable to change it. While some sites on Internet allows you to change your Date of Birth, some do not. You will be thinking that it doesn’t matter whether you entered correct or incorrect DOB, but I would say it does matter. When you have forgotten the password of your account and want to recover it, then you will probably be asked to enter your DOB in order to go to the password retrieval process.
There are also other events when your correct DOB helps you. Like, if a site launches a particular site which is accessible by only a certain age of people. If you had entered the correct DOB, you will get access else you won’t. People often time input wrong DOB on sites like Yahoo! Mail and later they find it hard to change the DOB. Here we have prepared a guide for you on how you can change your date of birth in Yahoo! Mail.
