No, this value can't be modified, but it's not really used for anything and is only visible to yourself (not other users).

When putting in my real date of birth, it said " You aren't able to create an account based on the information that you provided." I would really like to know why it's doing this and how to fix it.

 

Hey, thank you for bringing this to our attention. You shouldn't be getting this error unless you are under the recommended age requirement. It's recommended that you be 13+ to create an account and use the headset.

 

You can use this link for more details about our age requirements. If you're 13+, you should not be receiving this error. We know this can be tedious and wanna make sure you're able to make these changes!

 

We recommend you to submit a support ticket with a screenshot of the error. We don't have the required tools to assist further here on the forum. Once of our specialists will be happy to go over some more troubleshooting steps with you.  

I can’t change my birthday even after submitting a ticket. Support says they can’t change birthdays on their end so now I’m stuck with the wrong birthday and can’t even purchase M rated games.

I cant change it because I accidentally put in an age under 18 and it is really really hard to find a facebook support page. 

I'm having this problem to I'm 21 I accidentally put i was 13😭
