    Hello. Which device and Android version are you using?

    @Firelord according to the tags, it's Android 7 (Nougat). And AFAIK, since then the time format can no longer be set separately but is bound to the locale. So the language is missing from the details as well. If it's e.g. en-US, changing to a different locale like en-GB might help (provided the brits use dd/mm/yyyy that is).

Go to Settings -> Date & time -> Choose date format -> Select 31/12/2020.

  • no option named 'choose date format'
