I lost my streak even though I did my lesson.

I was on day 99, about to be 100. I did my lesson and was excited to know tomorrow I would get to 100. I logged on today and found that it said I didn't do my lesson and my streak was lost! I didn't buy a streak freeze. I am very upset and I don't want to pay $9.99 for something I should already have.

The three most common reasons for this are:

  • you're working on a phone or a tablet, and your phone / tablet hasn't been able to synchronise its data with the server.

  • your daily target is set to more XP than you did yesterday.

  • you've travelled across timezones, and Duolingo's using the time zone you travelled from.

The first is the most likely - that your mobile device hasn't synchronised.

It's always a good idea to buy a streak freeze if you care about your streak, and to check every now and then that it's still active. It's also a good idea to use the website to check that your phone / tablet has synchronised with the server.

Actually, my target goal is set to 1XP. I try to do at least 50XP a day though. I'm going with the first one. It really annoys me though. I actually thought I already had a streak freeze, so now I'm wondering how many times this happens.

EDIT: Also kinda annoyed because I was about to have a 100 day streak.
