object to requesting my birthdate at login
I object to you collecting my birthdate as a requirement to log in. It's easily possible to use some other information to authenticate me. I do not trust Adobe to keep my information confidential, because frankly, you lack imagination for not using another shared secret. Adobe is not authorized to use my birthday for any other purpose.

This is company provided software so why would I provide a personal piece of information?
I agree. It's an unnecessary invasion of the users' privacy.
So much so that I'm considering uninstalling Adobe Acrobat and moving to another software, less invasive!

Absolutely agree, that's how I came upon your post. A totally invasive, unnecessary practice. Data mining, plain and simply.
I completely object to collecting sensitive data!!! Unless my company changes it's policies and uses another tool, I will not be using Adobe.
