10,000 steps getcheltc — May 03, 2019 03:06PM PDT
I have Myfitnesspal on my phone and i carry it all day. It records all my steps but i don't get any calorie reductions for any walking that I do. If I set on map my hike/walk that calculates calories burned and I transfer them to my account. Any Idea why?

Our apologies for any problems you are having seeing your Steps within the app.
Would you mind trying a few options for us to see if any of them help? Could you fist please make sure you are on the latest version of the MyFitnessPal app. You should be able to check the App Store or Google Play to see if you are due for any updates.
If you are updated, next try going to the Menu or More section of the app and find Steps. Then select, “Don’t track Steps”. Go to a different section in the App, then return back to that area and try to select your Step source once more.
If you are using an iOS device, please also make sure to go into your device settings (not the app settings) then find MyFitnessPal under your listed apps, then make sure to enable “motion & fitness”.
Please also make sure you are not connected to more than one step tracking partner at a time. For example, if you are using iOS steps to track, you can not also track steps with Fitbit. You must choose the one you prefer and disconnect the other.
If that does not trigger the Steps again, you may want to try logging completely out of the App and then log back in. Then select your step source once more. To log out, go to the Menu (or “More” page) then Settings, then Log Out. Please make sure you know your username and password before logging out.
If you need to reset your password please visit https://www.myfitnesspal.com/account/forgot_password (your username should be included the body of that email).
Please let us know if you continue to have a problem.
All the best,
