Many Snapchat users are searching about “How Does Snapchat Know Where I Was Born”. It is because the app shows the time and place of birth of the users in settings.
Users indeed provide much information when signing up for any social media profile. This information includes name, date of birth, email, and even phone number.
However, it is considered when Snapchat knows things like place and time of birth. This information is beyond some user’s realization.
How Does Snapchat Know that Information?
It is not a mystery on the part of the app, because it is you who entered that information.
Back in 2020, a feature “Astrological profiles” was launched. To set up your profile you had to enter your time, date, and place of birth.
After the profile is established, it offers information related to your star sign including daily horoscope and more.
It means Snapchat has not secretly accessed your birth records, it is you who provided this.
