You need to buy a streak freeze from the shop. It will last for one day but will sit waiting for that day to happen.

Since you cannot freeze the streak for more than one day, and if it is not possible for you to get on the internet when you are away, you will probably ask someone you know to get in to your account and buy you additional streak freezes each day.

I agree it would be nice if you could stack a few days on streak freeze as long as you have lingots to do so.

To be precise: You can't buy more than a one-day streak extension. If you will only miss one day of DL, buy the streak freeze from the lingot store any time between now and when you leave. It will wait until you miss a day and then activate, preserving your streak that one extra day.

If you miss a second day, however, your streak will be reset to zero. You can't skip more than one day.

I have solved this problem by keeping track of my total DL days on my profile, whenever I lose a streak, which happens once or twice a year when I am away from Internet, I just add the value of my last streak to the total and start over with a new streak! Currently I'm around 430 total days on DL (joined when it was still in beta).

This could be an idea that Duo Staff may want to consider in the future. If you want to maintain a streak, but cannot access Duo/ the internet for > one day, perhaps the Lingot Store can sell multi-day freezes (up to a week?) for greater amounts of lingots. If your streak is high enough to want to preserve, you'll likely have the lingots required to afford this "purchase".
