How do streaks work?

Wondering how do streaks work? I feel like I’ve lost my streak twice this week even though I have been using the app every day. Does it count like 24 hours since last log in? I know it doesn’t really matter but it feels bad to lose a streak because I could study in the morning one day but in the evening the next.

There was another thread about streaks a while ago, but I can’t find it at the moment. I think (but I could be wrong!) that the streaks simply count a day as being between 0:01 and 23:59 based on the server’s clock, which happens to be local time in Portugal. So if you for instance live on the US west coast, your evening could easily be the following early morning in Portugal.

That that seems very plausible based on the times I tend to log on. Thank you!

Sorry to leave this hanging, just stumbled across it. This is correct, it uses the server’s clock. We also add a large buffer of hours to extend the 24h window, to account for a situation in which someone logs on one day, then flies to a different timezone and does another session later in the day.
