Hey thanks for posting your question. When using an android phone to track steps, you would want to us either the Samsung Health app or the Google fit app on your phone and then link that app with MyFitnessPal. Most recent model Samsung phones come with Samsung Health preloaded on the phone.
To get started with the Samsung Health integration, first download and then launch the app from the Play Store. Once completed, go into MyFitnessPal and find Apps & Devices under the Menu Bar. Search for Samsung Health and then tap Connect. You should see a pop up for permissions regarding the Samsung Health integration. In order for it to work properly, turn the integration On and then allow the permissions. Please note you will need to scroll down on this pop up to see all of the permissions. Tap Done to finish the set up.
Next, return to the Menu Bar in MyFitnessPal and tap Steps>Samsung Health.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or feedback.
All the best,
