    Forgot to add code clip.

    public static class DateTimeHelper

    /// <summary>
    /// Method to retrieve milliseconds since epoch
    /// </summary>
    /// <returns>
    /// Milliseconds since epoch
    /// </returns>
    public static long getMillisecondsSecondsSinceEpoch()
    return (long) DateTime.Now.ToUniversalTime().Subtract(
    new DateTime(1970, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, DateTimeKind.Utc)

    We are having a problem where getting a call to DateTime.Now.ToUniversalTime is failing. Very infrequently we see a timestamp that is earlier than current time.

    What actually is the behavior when this fails? Is the bug only for DATETIME.TOLOCALTIME?

    We are on Unity Version 2018.3.14f1 and Chrome Version 78.0.3904.108 (Official Build) (64-bit).

    The error is very infrequent but serious when it happens.

    Is there a fix planned or a specific release of Unity that is more reliable?

    I don't see in this link to download. Is there another way to reproduce?
