System Timezone

Timezone can be obtained using common Javascript functionality. Kameleo can spoof this.

There are two different ways to determine time:

  • System Time (requested through Javascript)
  • 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 timezoneThis can be easily achieved by selecting Automatic Timezone Spoofing. Read more about this in the article about 100% anonymity on websites.

If you prefer, you can set up a value automatically. Make sure that the Timezone will match your IP's location's timezone.

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 Automatic Timezone Spoofing Mode. This will always provide the proper value based on your Proxy's IP address.
