Can I opt out of having people find me by my email address?

If you would prefer to prevent your friends who use MyFitnessPal from finding your profile when searching by your email address, it's simple to opt out of this social feature using our full website, or our iPhone, iPad or Android apps.

On the Web
  • Log in to the site at www.myfitnesspal.com. Mobile app users should log in using the same username and password they use in the app.
  • Once you've logged in, click "My Home" then "Settings" then "Change email address/email preferences" and make sure the box is unchecked next to "Allow people to see that I am on MyFitnessPal and easily add me as a friend." Be sure to click "Save Changes" when you are finished
In our Android, iPad and iPhone apps
  • In the Menu (or "More" page) tap "Settings" then "Sharing & Privacy" then "Email Settings" and make sure "People Can Find Me by My Email Address" is unchecked.
