Update December 2009:: You can now change your birthday information at Yahoo. Apparently, this might still not be available if you haven’t answered the two security questions. Earlier, Yahoo wouldn’t even display the birthdate because it was used along with the country of residence and postal code to verify your identity when you’ve forgotten the Yahoo ID or have Yahoo email password issues.
As most of you would be aware, Yahoo had added a second security question some time back. All users were urged to protect their accounts, especially with rampant phishing scams, by creating one more security question.
The option to change the birthday would be available after 35 days of answering both the security questions. Yahoo has made great efforts in making its users realize the importance of protecting their account login information – Yahoo Sign in seal, for instance – and I suppose this 35 day period is in place because of the same reason.
To change your birthday information on a Yahoo account simply edit the profile – follow the steps below. These instructions have been worked out in the All-new Yahoo email interface via the Chrome web browser (Windows 7).
