Date of birth on mobile.

It is extremely hard to enter your date of birth on mobile. You get a helpful pop-up box, but it's not really helpful.

The pop-up box only allows navigation by one-month increments. The option to type it in, or at least to allow navigation by years would be very helpful!

It is a bit of a chore to navigate by 659 months back to 1965!!!

No, I'm not a Boomer--I'm a Gen-X'er--Like that would make any difference!!

Thank you so much for your help.

    Hey @jscurnow,

    I know the feeling — until very recently I was doing the exact same thing, and I even avoided date of birth fields from my phone!

    I recently found out you can change the year quickly though. When you're using a native Android date picker, such as in 1Password, you can tap the year (normally at the top of the date picker) and it should bring up a list of all the years for you. That way you don't have to go through each month. Let me know if that helps or if you have any other questions. :chuffed:
