fitbit steps not registering on mfp lale_71 — Oct 08, 2018 11:36PM PDT

I have done everything from disconnecting to re connecting both accounts, syncing etc etc. Mfp is not connecting to my fitbit. It is not syncing my steps but rather syncing my iphone steps

I'm having the same issue and no resolution. Tried unlinking and linking, not working. Maybe something is going on?

Hello folks,

Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

We were experiencing an issue earlier but this should now be resolved and Fitbit should now be back in working order.

If you are still seeing an issue take the following steps in this exact order:

- Log into your Fitbit Dashboard and unlink your MyFitnessPal connection
- Log into MyFitnessPal and make sure that Fitbit is completely disconnected
- While still logged into your MyFitnessPal account please reauthorize your Fitbit account

Hi carrie291

I can see Fitbit successfully connected to your account. Can you set Fitbit as the steps source and see if your data will start to sync by the end of the day?

All the best,

I am just setting up my new Fitbit 3, trying to connect to MFP, also.

I have disconnected and reconnected - my Fitbit account says it's sharing with MFP, but MFP says another device is already connected.
Help, please
