OP
That way others know your age but one does not need to reveal any potentially identifying information publicly. Even having the year on it's own would be better than the current option which forces you to include the month and day.

real, fake what do you think anyone can really do with a username and dob. even if i had your real name and DOB there still isn't much you could do with it. If you wanna run around and be paranoid go a head but your much more likely to have your identity stolen in a data breach from facebook or amazon than here at GBAtemp

Your full birth date is not viewable by the public only your age inputting it here is probably more secure than facebook
Yes it is if you did not change any settings.

well, i could describe various malicious things you could do with seemingly anonymous or little information, but i doubt that will help anyone.
instead, i'd recommend watching some videos by Computerphile and minutephysics on youtube, which explain such attacks better than i ever could.
