Visit admin/settings/date-time/formats in you instance & add a custom date format. See PHP manual for the options which you can.

Use your created date format to show the field value wherever you want like views.


I am writing this for future devs who stumble upon this. For me in the Webform Submission Data field, choosing "Number" and "Plain Text" resulted in dd/mm/yyyy format
