Fitbit eliminating Google sign-in support in front of account transition

  • 28-December-2022

Fitbit will require a Google Account to use new devices and features starting in 2023. Fitbit.com is dropping support for Google sign-in as part of its move to a single account system.

You can sign in to Fitbit.com at the moment by using "Continue with Google" (also known as a Google Account) or a username and password (also known as a Fitbit account). The website also allowed users to sign in with Facebook in 2021, but that feature was eventually removed, which was not surprising.

The Fitbit website’s sign-in page has been updated with the following message: “We are removing the option to log in to your account on fitbit.com with your Google credentials to support an improved experience coming soon.” No hard date for when this will occur is provided.

All Fitbit users should be aware that the Android and iOS apps already require their email address and password. If you haven't already, you should change your password and reset it.

As a result of this change, Fitbit accounts will be replaced by standard Google accounts, eliminating the need for two distinct systems. A Google Record will be expected to get to new highlights and set up gadgets, however clients will actually want to stay with existing Fitbit accounts until 2025.

Besides access to new features, Google touts features like “industry-leading account security, centralized privacy controls for Fitbit user data, and more features from Google on Fitbit.”

You will need to "consent to transfer your Fitbit user data from Fitbit to Google" when this consolidation begins. There is currently no timetable for when this will occur.
