Google Chrome is a extensively utilized internet browser globally. It is used by users in different time zones for their browsing needs. However, there may be times when your Google Chrome shows a different time zone from your current location. Do not worry! In this tutorial, we will show you how to easily change the time zone on Google Chrome.

How does Google Chrome determine the time zone?

First off, it is crucial to understand that Google Chrome determines the time zone based on the system settings of your device. That is, if your device is set to Eastern Standard Time, Google Chrome will display the same. Thus, when it comes to changing the time zone, the adjustment has to be made in the system settings of your device.

Changing your device’s time zone

For Windows users:

  1. Go to the bottom right corner of your screen, and click on the time and date display.
  2. Select Adjust Date/Time.
  3. Under the ‘Time Zone’ option, click on the drop-down menu and choose your appropriate time zone.
  4. Finally, refresh your Google Chrome browser and the new time zone should be updated.

For macOS users:

  1. Go to the Apple menu, then select System Preferences.
  2. Click on Date & Time.
  3. Go to the Time Zone tab.
  4. Uncheck Set date and time automatically if it’s checked, then select your time zone from the provided map or from the drop-down menu.
  5. Once done, refresh your Google Chrome browser and the new time zone should reflect.

What if my time zone is still incorrect?

If the time zone in your Google Chrome browser is still incorrect after following the above steps, it could be due to an extension that is overriding your time zone. If that’s the case, try disabling your extensions one by one to see if it corrects the issue.

To manage your extensions, type chrome://extensions into your Google Chrome address bar and press enter. Here you can disable or remove extensions that might be causing the problem.


Changing the time zone in Google Chrome is a straightforward process that involves adjusting the time zone settings on your device. Hopefully, this guide has been helpful in assisting you to change the time zone for a better browsing experience.
