Changing time in whonix workstation?

how do you change time in whonix workstation? :slight_smile:

Thanks!!

The question is a bit ambivalent so we can easily talk about different things and misunderstand.

Change time zone? No good idea, see:

To sync the clock:

Start Menu -> Applications -> System -> Whonix Timesync

Or in terminal.

timesync

Apart from sdwdate/timesync being installed by default, also https://www.whonix.org/wiki/About#Based_on_Debian applies.

Thanks for the reply and I’ve read the wiki before but it didnt answer my question, I want to change the time like you know how we do it on windows, ubuntu etc,
The only reason I am using whonix is to isolate my data,I do my normal activities on whonix in virtual box and save my data in the ubuntu host, this way my data is safe, I dont care if my location is compromised,

Disable sdwdate.

sudo service sdwdate stop ; sudo chmod -x /etc/init.d/sdwdate

Change time / time zone the same way as you would do on Ubuntu, see:

Actually you right right click on the clock.
