How to change a timezone under my account

The timezone is a region that has a specific standard time, which is government-mandated and is used for social and business purposes. It is defined by lines of longitude.

TraceMyIP account can be set to a specific user timezone that is used for statistics reporting. When a timezone is changed under TraceMyIP account, all new statistics data will be logged under the new time, however, all previously captured statistics that occurred before the timezone setting update will remain unchanged.

The timezone setting includes the hourly offset and a daylight savings options.

  • Timezone offset setting - defines hourly offset from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
