  5. Again my streak went away eveā€¦


Again my streak went away even though I practice each day! There must be something wrong.

March 8, 2018



Maybe you set a goal, and even though you practiced, you didn't reach that daily goal? I've set my goal to "10 XP" although normally, I do a lot more. But with this setting, I'm sure to maintain my streak even if I do just one lesson on a day.

If you met the goal that you set, then maybe it is a bug in the system. In that case, you should write a bug report. https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us


Thanks, I always reach my goal, 30 xp, usually much more. There must be a bug.


Tips for keeping your future streak:

(For users of the web version (www.duolingo.com) I see complaints from people, who are using outdated browsers and/or operating systems.)

It's always a good idea ....

  • to check that your phone / tablet has had a chance to synchronise with Duolingo's servers.

Why would it not synchronise? My Wifi/4G/LTE is okay

Because Duolingo has issues in synchronising, almost every day.

Always check if your phone had synchronised with the Duolingo servers after doing a lesson. Sometimes it can take 5-10 minutes after finishing a lesson in the App.

  • have always Duolingo's web version open in the browser of your phone
  • set this browser in Desktop mode
  • refresh your browser after each lesson in the App, and check if the amount of XP increased in the browser with the web version.


My wife seems to have the same problem. She believes it is because she practices at different times every day. Just a thought.


Thanks for the information everyone. I also practice at very different times of the day depending on my schedule. I always practice on my computer. I have good up to date browser and software, all functioning at peak performance. I've decided not to let it bother me. I'm still learning anyway!


Perhaps try buying a "Streak Freeze" and keep it equipped even though you practice every day. I am on PC and have had the streak freeze equipped for a few months. I haven't needed it, but it's good to know it's there if I miss by accident or maybe if something happens with the website.


Thanks for the suggestion. Great idea.
