  • How To change the time zone of the WordPress activity log

For every WordPress change that is recorded in the WordPress activity log, the WP Activity Log plugin records the username and role, the actual change and also the date and time of when the change happened, as can be seen in the below screenshot.

Changing the time zone of the WordPress activity log events

The plugin records the time of the change in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) but the time zone of the time displayed in the activity log is the one configured on your WordPress website. You can change the timestamp of the WordPress security events in the activity log back to UTC  or to the same time zone you have configured on your WordPress from the Events Timestamp settings shown in the below screenshot, which can be found in the Activity Log tab in the plugin’s settings.
