Best With Free User Account
You can create a Personal World Clock any time, but if you want to save it, we recommend that you log in to a free user account. Not only will this give you access to additional functions, it will also save your settings on timeanddate.com's servers, so you can use them from any computer, phone or tablet.
If your local system clock is altered in any way, the Personal World Clock will be altered by the same amount. In that case, please refresh/reload the page in your web browser to re-synchronize the clocks.
Problem: Wrong Cities
The Personal World Clock shows the wrong time or wrong cities: Press the Reload/Refresh button in your browser. If that does not help, try doing the same while holding the shift key down.
Problem: Cities Not Saved
No cities are saved: Your Personal World Clock might be working for weeks, months or years, and then suddenly the settings disappear. If you are not registered, your settings are not stored on the timeanddate.com site, but in a file (cookie) on your computer. If the cookies for timeanddate.com are somehow deleted, your Personal World Clock settings will be lost and you will need to reconfigure the clock.
