How do you get a UNIX timestamp using JavaScript?

My script needs to send a UNIX timestamp to the server, but it seems like JavaScript returns in a different format:

const timestamp = (date = new Date()) => Math.floor(date.getTime());

// 1673697202284

@SibertJan 16, 2023 — You can get the current UNIX timestamp (the number of seconds since the Unix Epoch, January 1, 1970 at 00:00:00 UTC) using the function or the Date.getTime() function in JavaScript.

let timestamp = new Date().getTime() / 1000;
