My progress is gone

I signed in a week ago into my account and all my progress was gone , how can i solve that . thanks guys

There are two different types of saved progress for Free Code Camp: your profile and your browser cache. However, there is also a known issue that may be affecting your account (see below).

Your completed challenges are all saved to your account in the FCC database. You can see the list of completed challenges and also the last submitted solutions by looking at your profile page.

If your profile does not include your completed challenges, here is my troubleshooting advice:

  1. Double check that you used the same method to sign in. Try logging out and back in again with the original method. Attempting to sign in with a different method will sometimes create a duplicate account. (FCC is taking steps to prevent this from happening in the future.)
  2. Double check that you aren’t on the beta site now and that you didn’t create your original account on the beta site by accident. (Yes, this does happen.)

Your progress tracking (map) is saved in your browser’s local storage. In-progress code is also saved in your local browser cache. If you are changing browsers or clearing your cache regularly you’ll have to use to navigate to your next challenge. Especially as you get to more complicated challenges that may take multiple sessions, I strongly recommend saving your in-progress work outside of the browser cache. This is a good opportunity to learn the ins and outs of your GitHub account, but you can also just save locally or use a service like which allows for versioning.

Known issue:

If your former progress cannot be found on your profile page, and your score has reset to 1, you have been affected by a known, but rare, issue. The team is working to resolve this issue.

If you want to start again, remember only the beginner and intermediate algorithms (marked on the map with a *), and the projects, are required to attain the front end certificate. Since your projects are likely hosted on Codepen, Surge or GitHub Pages, they have not been lost due to this reset - you can just resubmit them. Your algorithm solutions are the only critical solutions hosted directly on freeCodeCamp, so as you work on these be sure to push them to your GitHib repo, or store them with a service like Codepen, JSFiddle or Repl.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience and we are working hard to resolve future issues.

thank you for answer. But why there isn’t a way to save my progress in your server, because I took me a lot of time to do the task and i had many explanatory notes that i wrote. What do you mean with saving localy? copy paste in a notepad?.

It is being saved on the server as default. If your progress is gone, that means that you have been affected by a bug.

A few questions:
What is your username on freeCodeCamp?
Are you sure you were logged in when doing the exercises?
And did you confirm your emailaddress?
Also, if you go to a challenge you already did, does your code show up?

My username is: YoussefBoulben
Yes I was logged in.
my emailadress was confirmed because when i went to the con firmation email and clicked this message showed on freecodecamp : Looks like you have already verified your email. Please login to continue.
My code does not show up but the name of the challenge is light blue as if i clicked before in all the exercices that i did

What is the url you see when you go to your profile page (click on the icon in the top right corner)?

My url would be:, but is not working.

this is the url that i seee :

outside the forum when i click map this is what oi get :

I see that you have 200+ brownie points (points you get for completing a challenge). So it looks like everything is saved?

EDIT: This might be relevant as well => Announcement: Viewing and sharing solutions from user profiles is temporarily disabled

Did you not give a username?

Hi, I have accidentally signed out of FreeCodeCamp and when I logged back, all my 110 challenges were gone.

Username I believe is: fcc3f6756b7-27cf-42da-be0e-6eb01951be30

My longest streak is also gone. Yet if I navigate though previous 110 challenges, I see that those have the saved answers. Do I have to review all those 110 for this to be OK? How about my longest streak information?


Yes, they are saved in local storage. I guess the only thing you can do is login and manually run the tests and completing the challenges one by one.

No its not saved I ont´care about brwinie points I only want to see my exercises done . I spent hundreds of hours doing them.

And the Longest Streak info along with the days that I worked on FreeCodeCamp can forever be gone?

Did they once show up even when you weren’t logged in?

See the issue I linked too. They are saved, but you can’t see them for now.


I have the same problem, i can see my progress but i can’t see the code with which i completed each algorithm.

My profile URL is:

please help since i want to check some code i previously run.

thank you.

Hi, we have prepared a fix, to re-enable viewing your solutions. Hopefully this will be available soon. I have updated the original announcement thread for details.

Apologies for the inconvenience.
