My streak number keeps starting over

Updated 2 months ago by Pieter van der Merwe

When you open the Bible App each day, your streak will increase by 1 each day

If your streak number resets it could be for one of the following reasons
  • You did not open the Bible App between 12:01 am and 12:00 midnight for a particular day. In other words, every 24 hours, is counted as one day. This is the most frequent reason a streak will start over
  • You were not signed in to your YouVersion account when you opened the app on a particular day
  • You use the Bible App on multiple devices but are not signed in to the same YouVersion account on all devices. Streaks is unique to the account you are signed in to
  • Rarely, There may be a ‘glitch’ in the YouVersion server
