Set the Automatic Date and Time on Galaxy S6

Ever wake up late for work because you forgot Daylight Savings Time began? Your S6 can automatically set your date and time according to your location, so you always have the right time. You can also set the time manually, so if you're habitually late, set it 5 minutes fast and stay on your boss's good side.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Set Automatic Date and Time

You have enough to worry about, so let your phone take care of setting the date and time for you. All you have to do is set your preference. If you prefer to set the date and time yourself, you can do that too.

  • Navigate to Apps > Settings.

    1. Touch Search, then search for and select Date and time.  

    2. To turn on Automatic date and time, touch the slider next to Automatic date and time.  

    3. If you prefer to manually set up the date and time, touch the slider again, and adjust the date and time to your preferred settings.
