Mobile/Web media uploads: generated file name contains timestamp in local time; should be UTC
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The timestamp at the end of generated file names for mobile uploads should be in UTC, not in the user's computer's local time.

Don't know what, if anything at all, our privacy policy says about it, but in any case this gives an unnecessary lead about where the uploading user is located.
