    Facebook birthdays

    I am for some reason or another now receiving Birthdays from Facebook.
    1. I don't want to get those as I could care less, and have gone into the security settings and turned Birthday's off
    2. I have looked on both my Surface tablet app and Windows Phone app and don't see anything that would indicate to turn that off.
    3. The main Facebook web page on my tablet is just like my laptop page. Birthdays are off.

    Ideas anyone?

    Thanks
    John

    Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

    Thank you for the nice information really I was unaware about this.. So your message will help me to secure my FB account as I use my face book account on regular basis.

    It's one of the features i most enjoy about Facebook, actually. There's no way i could keep up otherwise.
