Betty White is three months away from turning 100, and fans will do anything to keep America’s sweetheart safe — including demanding security.

The 99-year-old actress’ birthday is fast approaching in January, and after last year’s scare when she trended on Twitter and everyone thought she had passed, they’re desperate to ensure her safety.

“Please provide her with national security protection and wrap her safely in bubble wrap,” tweeted one fan.

“I’m going to fall apart if we lose #BettyWhite please keep her safe,” wrote another.

“I have been informed that Betty White is turning 100 in January. We’re all getting the day off as a national holiday I presume,” a fan tweeted.

Much like last year, White is trending on Twitter yet again and causing worry. While the false alarm sent people into a frenzy when they saw her name trending on the app Wednesday and Thursday, they were relieved to see she’s alright.

“Every single time Betty White is trending my heart skips a beat,” one fan tweeted.

For being nearly 100, White is in “good health” and being “extra careful” during the pandemic, she said earlier this year.

The “Golden Girls” actress, who is older than sliced bread, told People on her 99th birthday that she always tries to find the bright side of life, saying that positivity is “a lot more fun.”

A sense of humor is what keeps her going, she told the outlet, adding, “Don’t take yourself too seriously. You can lie to others — not that I would — but you cannot lie to yourself.”

The Illinois-born, California native began her acting career in 1939, only three months after graduating from Beverly Hills High, featuring in an “experimental” show.

Since her early acting beginnings, White has made history in a multitude of ways — namely, being the first woman to produce a sitcom in the 1950s. From playing Sue Ann Nivens on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” to Rose Nylund on “The Golden Girls,” White stole a place in our homes and our hearts.

In a past interview with The Post, White joked she’s “the center of the storm.”

“I’m just grateful to be working, and that starts at the beginning,” she said. “When you start out, you’re so grateful to have a job … and you carry that feeling through your whole career. At least I have.”
