Time Zone Problem

On 30+ day streak and went to Berlin - one hour ahead of UK (my home).

On return and at 11.30-ish UK time, remembered that I hadn't reached my target for the day.

Sat down and did a couple of units before 12 midnight only to find my streak had disappeared - Duo thought I was still in Berlin and seemed to consider my work too late.

Anyone else encountered this problem?

Yup, I travel from the US to Europe sometimes, and I encounter this problem. But the good news is that the fix is super easy... Just log into the mobile app, using Wifi or your local cellular data network (just to be safe, I'd turn on location services if you have a smartphone, although I don't think this step is necessary) and it'll automatically sync to the timezone of wherever you are at the moment.

Supposedly only if you have an Android smartphone - not on iOS or Windows Phone.

Thanks for the response.

Unfortunately didn't work for me - too late probably.
