Absolutely. For whatever silly reason, the time zone you sign up in is the time zone that you have forever. Even if you move half the world (12 timezones) away. Maybe eventually they will figure out how to change this, but for now whatever timezone you signed up as you get to keep.

Are you sure? I signed up in a different time zone from my cousin, then moved to the same time zone as him, and our days end at the same time (midnight where I am now). I seem to remember my streak ending at midnight there, too, though I'm not sure I really payed that much attention. Incidentally, I never listed my location with Duolingo at all. I had assumed Duolingo used your IP address to figure out when to have your streak end, but really I have no idea . . .

I live in France and get reminders on French time, but my location is and always was set to Jakarta! I don't even know where that is... It's infuriating losing long streaks because I have to do duo before I get home from work.

P.S. I emailed support about it about 6 months ago and never heard back.
