Who can see my personal information on Fitbit?

When you first created your Fitbit account, your personal information is set to private by default:

  • Birthday (if you sign in with your Fitbit login)

  • Sex, height, and weight

  • Location

  • Friends

  • Badges

  • Lifetime steps, distance, and floors

When you add a friend or join a group on Fitbit, your average daily step count, display name, and profile photo are visible to your friend and other group members. Your About Me information and the date you joined Fitbit is visible to your friends.

Control who sees your personal information in your privacy settings.
