How to Enable Facebook Birthday Scopes

Enabling Facebook user_birthday Scope will allow you to access the date and month of a person's birthday. 

This may or may not include the person's year of birth, dependent upon their privacy settings.

Here's how to enable it:

In your Facebook App, click on "App Review" then "+ Add Items"

Select "user_birthday" and then click the "Add 1 Item" button

Click on "Edit Notes"

  • Select how you intend to use the information.
  • Turn Web "ON"
  • Write how you intend to use the app.
  • Upload the video (found here)
  • Click on "SAVE"

Sample description:

1. User connects to Wi-Fi Network

2. User agrees to Terms and Conditions, including Privacy

3. Connects with Facebook, accepts access, and is given Free Wi-Fi Access

Likes are asked in order to gauge interests of users to send more relevant information/coupons/offers.

Click on "Submit For Review"

That's it!

Once approved, it will look like this:


Update your Integration:
Once your Facebook App is approved for the user_birthday scope.
You have to pull the updated scopes for the Facebook App that you added as an Integration.

  • In the MyWiFi Dashboard
  • Navigate to the Integrations section from the Left Menu
  • Identify the Integration that you added for your Facebook App
  • Click on the Edit button next to it
  • Click Save on the Edit view
  • Click the Edit button again and make note that the App Scopes have been updated and include user_birthday

Please Note:
If the user_birthday scope is not part of the App Scopes list, that means that the Facebook App you have added does not have access to the those scopes. Please re-check your App Scope Permissions or contact support if you believe this is in error.
