There are two different ways to determine time:
- Local time (based on the IP address)
Kameleo spoofs the System Time, but if you want to reach 100% anonymity you will need to choose a timezone that fits the IP address’s location’s timezone. Read more about this in the article about 100% anonymity on websites.
If you select the correct timezone for your IP you will get 100% anonymity.
Daylight saving time
Note: you have to think also about daylight saving time. It messes things up a little bit, but if you read this below you will understand.
Let’s say you want to have a profile in San Antonio, Texas. Here you can check the timezone of San Antonio: https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/usa/san-antonio
San Antonio is in the (UTC-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada) timezone. This is how it is officially called. You also see it in the Windows Timezone settings.
Note that this naming convention is a bit confusing since San Antonio has DST (Daylight Saving Time). It means that during the year the local time is changed by 1 hour. During the American summer, the time in San Antonio, Texas is UTC-05 but it is still in the UTC-06:00 Central Time (US & Canada) timezone. This can be very confusing.
For example right now (9th May) I check San Antonio’s timezone. It says it is UTC-5.
If I now set (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) my timezone will be just spoofed with UTC-4 hours because of the DST. So, in this case, I selected the wrong timezone.
Be careful because even the Vip72 Socks Client can trick you. Here it shows UTC-05 again. But the correct timezone is UTC-06.
Auto timezone spoofing
For your convenience, we implemented little helper tools. You can find the timezone selectors in the Tools menu.
There are timezone selector tools, where you can search timezone by countries or states in the US.
In Kameleo v1.6 we introduced a feature of how you can convert any IP address to a timezone.
Simply type your IP or your VPN’s IP or your proxy’s IP and generate the correct timezone info from it.
It will help you to always find the correct timezone.
