How Does Snapchat Know Where I Was Born?
Usually, this information includes user name, date of birth, sex, email address and sometimes the mobile number. Though Snapchat is one of the popular platforms, the users of this platform noticed that the app knows even much about them they accomplished, and it’s quite weird, to say the least.
Users Find Snapchat knows the date of their born place and time
For the past few weeks, a number of Snapchat users found that the app knows some pretty personal information about their personal lives. IIf the users go into their settings, it shows the exact time and location of the birth of the users. Quite Scary, right? Users of Snapchat have been taking the Twitter platform to discuss their shocking findings, and everyone emerged to be quite confused.
One user made a tweet in which he wrote, “How on the earth does Snapchat know that what was the exact time of my birth? I AM FREAKED OUT.”
Another user wrote, “Someone told me that Snapchat knows the exact time when I was born.”
One more person added, “Nah what the f*** how does this stupid app know the exact time of my birth and even the location.”
Snapchat Know but how?
So now the question is how does Snapchat know the exact time and location of the birth of users? Well sorry, guys to break it to you the reason behind this due to the information you entered at the time of sign up. It is the part of a feature called “Astrological Profiles” that was introduced in the year 2020. In order to set up the Astrological Profile, the users had to enter their date, time, and place of birth.
Then the user was able to see a whole wealth of detail related to the star sign including a daily horoscope, described the personality traits and information about the moon, rising signs, and sun. It means Snapchat has not accessed the top secrets about the birth of users and there is nothing wrong with this.
