Lost Duolingo Streak? Has your Duolingo Streak disappeared? Arg, that hurts! Building a streak takes time and effort. But life happens, and we can easily miss a full day or two without signing into Duolingo.
Sound familiar? You log in and realize your streak has vanished into thin air.
But don’t lose hope just yet. There’s a chance you can recover it! Really? Yeah, and without spending a penny.
If you’re in this situation right now, keep reading. Meet Streak Saver, the hero of this post. He’s been helping people retain and restore their streaks! And he’s here to help you also!

Ok, ok… I get it, you have just lost a streak that has taken you a long time to build, so you’re not in the mood for 3D pictures. So let’s cut to the chase, people. Streak Saver has some secrets to share, and you don’t want to miss ’em. Let’s get that streak back and show Duolingo who’s boss!
Lost Duolingo Streak – Here are two ways to get it back!
We not only have one but two ways to get your streak back! I’m confident that at least one (if not both) will work for you!
1. Quick fix (change your date and time)!
As simple as it sounds, it works. Just change the date and time of your device and complete a lesson! Your streak will be back! If you need more specifics on how to do this, here is a step-by-step guide for iPhone and Android.
- Open your Settings menu. Click “General”.
- Go to “Date & Time”.
- Turn off the switch next to “Set Automatically”.
- And then change the date to one day back.
- Open your Settings menu. Click “System”.
- Go to “Date & Time”.
- Turn off the switch next to “Automatic date & time”.
- Select “Set Date” and change the date to one day back.
The process of changing the date and time varies depending on your device’s model. So, you’ll need to find your way around some steps.
After changing the date and time, go back to Duolingo and complete one or two lessons (some users found that using Duolingo offline helped). Then close the app and go back to the settings menu and turn on the switch next to “Automatic date & time” or “Set Automatically”. Thank me later!
2. Become a Super Duolingo member:
Did you know that every Super Duolingo member has a streak saver a month? And this streak saver comes as an addition to the Streak Freeze you buy at the Duolingo Shop.
So you can recover your streak by simply becoming a Super Duolingo member.
It even works for those who were not Super Duolingo members when they lost the streak.
The only requisite is joining Super Duolingo less than 48 hours after they lost it.
How many days could you keep your streak if you’re equipped with two Streak Freeze and are a Super Duolingo member?
You can go by without opening Duolingo for three days if you’re equipped with two Streak Freeze and are a Super Duolingo member.
Check the picture below. The blue circles indicate the days that the Streak was frozen.
Two examples in which you can have your streak back.
If you are still wondering if this news is too good to be true, and you do not know if the recovery process applies to you, we will expand the explanation by giving you two examples. Let’s hope that you’re in one of them.
Here is the first example:
Let’s imagine you have had a busy week. You met your Duolingo goal daily but could not log in yesterday.
Today, you log in, and your streak number has gone to zero. You hadn’t purchased a Streak Freeze from the Duolingo Shop. And please don’t buy it now because it won’t bring your streak back. It will only help you keep your future streaks.
Again, we remind you that you should buy a Streak Freeze before losing your streak. But after you have lost it, purchasing one won’t bring it back. Some Duolingo users have gone with excitement to the Duolingo Shop and bought a Streak Freeze, only to discover that their streak continues to be at zero.
So, this may be a bit disappointing. What can you do? Don’t worry, there is still a way to save your streak. Yeah!
You can become a Super Duolingo member, and your streak will be back. It’s important to mention again that you must become a Super Duolingo member less than 48 hours after you lose your streak. If you wait for more than 48 hours after you lose the steak, you will not be able to recover it.
Here is our second example:
You’re a very organized person and had seen beforehand that these days were coming. As a result, you got equipped with two “Streak Freeze” at Duolingo Shop.
So one day, you could not log into Duolingo and missed that day! But you’re relaxed that you bought the Streak Freeze ahead. But then you weren’t able again to log into Duolingo the second day either. So, it is good you had equipped yourself with that second Duolingo Freeze. But a third day goes by, and you still do not log in. Finally, you rush into your Duolingo account on the fourth day and are welcomed by a zero in your streak!
Don’t worry! All you need is to become a Super Duolingo member on that fourth day (again, it must be less than 48 hours after you lost the streak), and your streak will be back.
You may be saying at this point: “But you promised that restoring my streak wouldn’t cost me a dime! And since Super Duolingo is the paid version of Duolingo, it will cost me some money after all!” And the answer is: you can still recover your streak completely free.
There are two ways you can become a Super Duolingo member for free:
1.) The most obvious way of becoming a Super Duolingo member is to be willing to pay the fee. But if you have never been a Super Duolingo member, you can test drive it the first time for free. It’s a no-brainer. You have nothing to lose and a streak to win.
2.) The second way you can become a Super Duolingo member is by inviting a friend to join Duolingo. You can do this by giving them your “affiliate link.”
Your friend can then join through your “affiliate link.” When this happens, Duolingo grants you the Super Duolingo membership for one (1) week.
You enjoy all the benefits of being a Super Duolingo member. And among these benefits comes saving your streak! And it doesn’t cost you a dime!
How do you find your Duolingo affiliate link on the app?
- On your Duolingo main page, go to the bottom and click the profile icon.
2. On the profile page, scroll down. You will find a section: “Invite your friends,” as seen in the picture below.
3. Click “Invite Friends.”
4. You will be asked how you want to share your invitation.
5. Let’s say you choose to share on WhatsApp. The link to join Duolingo will go out to your friends, as shown in the picture below. That link is your affiliate link. Any person that joins through that link will give you Super Duolingo powers (and recover your streak).
How do you find your Duolingo affiliate link on your desktop?
- On your Duolingo main page, go to the left-side menu.
2. Click “Profile” and you will land on your Duolingo profile.
3. Scroll down until the end of your profile and you will find “Invite Friends” as seen in the picture below.
4. Click “Invite Friends.”
5. A new window will appear with your “affiliate link.”
6. Click “Copy Link”.
7. Then paste that same link in the message you will send your friend inviting them to join Duolingo.
The day you need to restore your streak, contact a friend. Tell them you have a cool language platform they can join completely free. And send them your “affiliate link.” Tell them to join by clicking the link and then signing up as a new member. Easy, isn’t it?
Try it! It works! Many have been lamenting that their streak is gone forever. But after checking this out, they then celebrate seeing their streak back!
Did you try it? Are you in the mood now to see Streak Saver’s 3D logo? Then get your 3D glasses. ?
Once you have your Streak back
Here are a couple of suggestions:
First of all, equip yourself with two Streak Freezes ahead of time. ? You can actually buy two.
Each Streak Freeze costs ten Lingots (in the Duolingo desktop currency) or 200 gems (in the Duolingo mobile currency).
Being equipped with two Streak Freeze means you will retain your Duolingo Streak even after two consecutive days of inactivity.
And do not limit yourself to learning a language only with Duolingo. Duolingo can only take you so far. This suggestion should not be surprising to you. Because the very founder and CEO of Duolingo, Luis von Ahn, promises this concerning his platform. We quote him referring to the realistic results you should expect. “Get users to a level between advanced beginner and early intermediate.” So, please use this occasion you temporarily lost your streak to your advantage. Start to explore other paths that can take you beyond the early intermediate level. Click here (or on Streak Saver’s invitation below) to check out alternatives.
