How to add a family member to family in FITBIT app?

Adding a family member to your Fitbit app can be a bit confusing, but don't worry, I'm here to help. The process differs slightly depending on how you logged into Fitbit, so let's go through both scenarios.

If you signed into Fitbit with your Google account, you'll need to manage your family in a separate place. All you have to do is add up to five people to join your Google family group. To invite your family member to your Google account, visit and send them an invite via email or using the Family Link app, Google One app, or Google Assistant. Once they accept the invitation, they should automatically appear as members in your Fitbit family account.

On the other hand, if you logged into the Fitbit app with your email and password, you'll need to add your family member as a friend first. Here's how:

  1. Open the Fitbit app and tap on "Family."
  2. Tap on "Friends" in the bottom right corner.
  3. Tap on "Add Friends."
  4. Enter your family member's email address or search for them by username.
  5. After they receive the friend request, they should confirm it by opening their email or Fitbit app.

Once the friend request is confirmed, follow these steps to add them to your family account:

  1. Go to "Family Account."
  2. Look for the option to invite members or add guardians.
  3. Tap on the name of the person you want to invite.
  4. They will receive an email notification in the Fitbit app to join the family.

Now, if you signed into Fitbit with your Google account, you may not see the button to add family members since the process is managed through Google. You have the option to attach your Google account to your Fitbit account and try adding family members through the Google family group feature.

Unfortunately, the current design of the Fitbit app can make this process a bit complicated, and many users, like yourself, have found it confusing. You're not alone! Hopefully, the developers will address these concerns and make it easier in future updates.

For now, the best advice is to follow the steps I've outlined based on how you signed into Fitbit. If you're still having trouble, don't hesitate to seek further assistance or watch tutorial videos that offer guidance on this specific issue.
