    The time is correct on my phone itself. However, when I post something on Instagram, it will say that it has been posted for 24 hours, when i just posted it. When it first started happening, it would say it had been posted for 1 hour. Now it will say that it has been posted for 24 hours. How do I fix this????

    Welcome to Android Central! Is it only happening with Instagram? If so, it's probably a problem with that app. Try emailing the developer: android-support@instagram.com

    I am the one who posted the question. It is not just Instagram. On snapchat, when I post a picture to my story, it says it has been there for 23 hours.

    Thanks for registering! That's pretty weird. What phone do you have?

    It's an older phone that I use for apps. I believe it's an LG Lucid 4G

    So is it only apps that use the camera that have the wrong time? If so, I wonder if the camera is somehow attaching the wrong time to the photos.

    It does seem to only be the apps that use the camera. The time on my posts for facebook are correct.

    Try going to Settings>Apps>All​, select Camera, and Clear Cache and Clear Data.

    Go to Settings>Date & Time. Do you have Automatic Date & Time and Automatic Time Zone checked? If not, check them. If they're already checked, then let's see what happens if you uncheck them and manually set the date, time and time zone.

    I was having the exact same problem with my apps time. I set the time and date in the settings to automatic and it fixed this problem.

    If that doesn't work, look at the time and date on the picture (Photo exif editor can do that). If they're correct, it's not the phone's fault. If they're not, you can go from there, to find out why the pictures are being saved with the wrong EXIF (EXchangeable Image file Format) data.

    My pic times are right but none of my apps are. I had to manually set the time on my phone or its wrong.

    I'm having a similar problem with my instagram too. The timing on my Direct messages is wrong, it would say that I sent the message an hour ago, when I just sent the message. It's really bugging me.
