How to not show entire birthdate on ward directory

Postby ahrens1 » Sun May 15, 2016 12:24 pm

I was surprised to see my husband's and my entire birthdates on the ward directory. I have been trying to delete them - at least the year - and can't do it in the current edit format. Any suggestions as to what would work?

Short of having your name removed from the records of the church - you can't. However, it's only shown to ward leaders based on their calling, so it's not like the whole ward can see it.
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

What ward directory are you referring to? The Directory on lds.org doesn't show birth dates. If you mean the directory in the LDS Tools application for smartphones then those birth dates are only shown for yourself and for leadership who have specific need for it. Other members of your ward can't see them.

There is no way to remove those dates because they are part of your membership information but rest assured that they are considered sensitive information and are only visible to those who need to know them.
