My EveryMove Fit account is connected to my Tandem account. But, an app or device I have connected to my EveryMove Fit account is not properly updating. What do I do?
For Most Connection Issues:
Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot an issue with an app or device:
- Try disconnecting and reconnecting your app/device to EveryMove
- Check your time zones are the same on EveryMove and your app/device (you can check the EveryMove side by logging in and going to your Settings page)
- If you share a computer, make sure you're logged into EveryMove as you (instead of your roommate or spouse) and that you are properly connected to your third-party account
- Check your activity is showing up on the third party site correctly (ie. login to your Fitbit account and see if your steps count is updating correctly)
- Sometimes these problems will fix themselves - so you can try waiting a few days to see if the issue persists.
- We are dependent on what an app or device is willing to share with us, so can't always see what you see in your account. Issues can arise due to network connections, mismatched activities, timing differences, missing or incorrect data passed on to us.
Verify that you have given EveryMove permission to receive your Apple Health data. To do this, open Apple Health on your iPhone:
- Go to the "Sources" tab.
- Tap the EveryMove icon under "Apps."
- Turn "Steps" and "Workouts" On to allow EveryMove to read data (green is On).
- Go to Settings on your iPhone.
- Tap on "Privacy."
- Tap on "Motion & Fitness"
- Enable "Fitness Tracking" and "Health," Both of these should be in the On (green) position.
- Open the Apple Health App and go to the "Health Data" tab.
- Tap on "Fitness" and select the activity you are wanting to sync (ie. "Steps").
- From this Activity page you should see an orange graph with your activity for the day on it. Tap on the "Share Data" folder.
- Tap the "Edit" button and Re-arrange the list of Data Sources and put your iPhone on the top of the list (if it is not already). Click Done.
- Go to the EveryMove app > Apps & Devices. Tap the orange "Sync" button next to "Apple Health App".
- Check Profile page to see if steps data appears.
Why is the Tandem password so long?
Tandem uses the latest security best-practices to ensure your personal information is private and secure.
Part of that protection is dependent upon you choosing a good password. You may not know it, but eight character passwords, no matter how complex, are no longer secure and can be compromised quite easily. In order to for your password to be secure it needs to be a minimum of 14 characters, preferably longer.
So how do you choose a password that is so long and still remember what it is so you can login?
One way to do this is to use passphrases. Passphrases are a group of four or more words combined to make one really long password. They should not be words that normally go together.
Example Password: correct horse battery staple
Another option is using a password vault, like 1Password or LastPass. These applications remember and fill in your password for you. It can be anything, including a long random string, since you don't need to remember it.
Example Password: Vm59^s8,TW3BTSNm+94YQYaHRdjyxK;fC
