Several years back, Facebook used to send birthday reminders via email. They stopped doing it in favor of the "birthday ticker" on the home page. Problem with this is, you only see the ticker if you're actually on Facebook. I don't visit the site every day, and I've missed a number of friends' birthdays.

Is there a way to get my emailed reminders again? (Hopefully without needing to use one of the annoying third-party apps that want access to all kinds of permissions.)

Go to the Gear Icon > Account Settings > Notifications > Email, then check if it's set to either 'All notifications, except the ones you unsubscribe from' or 'Important notifications about you or activity you've missed'. Also, check if you've unsubscribed to emails about Birthday Reminders. If yes, click on the corresponding 'Turn On' link.

  • Looking at my settings, I'm not unsubscribed to birthday reminders. My email notifications is set to the first option (all except ones I unsubscribe to.) Not sure what else I need to do.

  • @EmmyS Are you getting other Facebook notifications in your email inbox? Check if you have the correct email address set at General Account Settings > Email. Jun 19, 2013 at 2:41
  • Yes, I had the correct email address set.
