We take the privacy of personally identifiable information in Snap very seriously, and this more detailed date and time of birth will only be used for this astrological profile feature.

Snapchat published astrological profiles in November 2020 a way for users to share and compare horoscopes of their stories and check their relative compatibility with friends.
