Fitbit moving ahead with Google account transition by removing Google sign-in

What you need to know

  • Fitbit begins alerting users to the coming phase out as it switches to basic Google accounts for signing in.
  • The company sees this as a good change for users as it can now offer better security and more while being centralized under a single Google account.
  • Devices can begin to be linked with Google accounts in 2023 with Fitbit accounts disappearing by early 2025.

Fitbit’s single account transition is moving forward as certain elements of its main website change.

According to 9to5Google, Fitbit is beginning to show signs of the transition away from its own accounts in favor of users using their Google accounts instead. The well-known wearable company’s sign-in page on its website has started delivering a message to users about their accounts. The message states, “we are removing the option to log in to your account on with your Google credentials to support an improved experience coming soon.”
