Birthday listed on Spotify is incorrect. Says to change it on Facebook, but Facebook is correct.


Changing the date on Facebook doesn't update it on spotify. All 3 parts of it are wrong: Month, Day, Year. Specifically, it's off by 4 months, -2 days, and 2 years.


It doesn't let me change it on Spotify.

Hey @Axoren


That's definitely a strange one! Could you Private Message me with the email address associated with your account? I'll take a closer look for you.

Exactly the same problem, same age difference as well..

I have the exact same problem, my birthday is listed as off by 8 years, 3 months, and 11 days. Facebook has the correct birthday, but I can't change it on spotify account management since it is synced to my facebook account.

I'll send you a PM as well with my account info.

I'm having exactly the same problem. 

My facebook account is accurate, but Spotify had a completely different date noted. 

It's out by 9 Years 11 months.


Has anyone found a solution to this yet?

Same here! Facebook is correct but spotify is way off. I'm April 6th 1988 and is says sometime in 94. 

Same problem. Only out by about 13 years though!

I have the same problem, despite my birthday listed on Facebook being correct. It's off with 5 years, 1 month and 2 days.

Hey can this problem fixed already?
It seems to be a reoccurring issue that Spotify has yet to update since 2015.
It'd be nice to have the correct information, thank you so much. :^|

Me too

I have updated my email on facebook, but it didn't change in here, I tried log out and log in, it still didn't change.

Hi all,

I recently started using Spotify and I have the same issue.

What I did notice though, which I think might be the source of the problem is that when it asks to authorise your Facebook account it wants to check that you're above 21. But what Spotify does is basically make your "Date of birth" exactly 21 years before the date that you started using for Spotify.

This is what Spotify tells me my birth date is: "12/03/1997" and "12/03/2018" is when I started using Spotify.

Hopefully someone at Spotify can use this information to implement a fix.
