Hello,

You can invite a friend to join MyFitnessPal if you know their email address, or if you are friends on Facebook and you have linked your MyFitnessPal and Facebook accounts.

On the Web – Email address

Log into your account on our website at http://www.myfitnesspal.com. Mobile app users should log in using the same username and password they use in the app. Click the “My Home” tab, then click “Friends.” Click “Add friends by Email” Fill in the form, and your friend(s) will receive an email invitation to join MyFitnessPal. If they are already members, they will receive a Friend Request to their MyFitnessPal account

On the Web – Facebook Friends

First, make sure your MyFitnessPal and Facebook accounts are linked. Log into your account on our website at http://www.myfitnesspal.com. Mobile app users should log in using the same username and password they use in the app. Click “My Home” then “Friends” then “Add friends by Facebook.” Your Facebook friends who are not currently MyFitnessPal members will appear in the second part of the list. Click “Invite” to send them an invitation to join MyFitnessPal.

In our iOS or Android Apps – Email address

Launch the app and visit the “Friends” page. Tap “Add Friends” or the plus “+” then tap “Email or MyFitnessPal Username.” In the “To” field, enter the email address(es) of your friend(s) to send a friend request. If they are already members, they will receive a Friend Request in their MyFitnessPal account. If your device’s contact list contains your friend’s email address, you can tap the “Contact” option instead of the “Email” option to easily send email invitations by selecting friends from your contact list.

In our iOS or Android Apps- Facebook Friends

First, make sure your MyFitnessPal and Facebook accounts are linked. Launch the app and visit the “Friends” page. Tap “Add Friends” or “+” then tap “Facebook.” Your Facebook friends who are not currently MyFitnessPal members will appear in the second part of the list.
