I am working on an app which asks for date of birth of users during signup process. The app can be used by users of all ages. Having said that, I think there must be some validation in place. In my opinion kids should be at least 13+ (which also clears FTC guidelines) to understand and use the app. But what should be the max age limit?
Here are some findings from the web (Format = Brand name | Min year | Max year):
- Google | 2015 | 1866
- Yahoo | 2015 | 1885
- Facebook | 2015 | 1905
- Apple | 2015 | 1865
(All provided a dropdown menu and in all above cases, I couldn't create an account with year of birth as 2015 due to validations/legal constraints. Wondering why provide 2015 as a menu item in the first place?)
