    Hi all.

    I'm desperately looking for some help in finding a step tracking pedometer app where you cannot edit your steps manually.

    My girlfriend sadly suffers from an eating disorder and an addiction to walking and does many thousand of steps each day that she tracks with a pedometer app. I keep on eye on the app in an attempt to monitor her walking. However, the two apps she's used in the past have had the ability to manually edit steps. So before showing me the app each day she often lowers the number to lie about her steps.

    This is unfortunately causing huge problems in her recovery and is there is no accountabilty and she is now desperately underweight. I am not exaggerating when I say that finding a pedometer app where she cannot edit the steps genuinely might help save her life.

    So if anyone knows of a way on Android of having it track steps without letting the user edit them I would be beyond grateful. And just any help whatsover would be very appreciated.

    Thank you so much.

    Welcome to Android Central! That's a tough situation. I don't have an app suggestion, but I would say that the exercise probably isn't as detrimental as the abnormal eating, so the latter would be even more important to address. Is she already under the care of a multidisciplinary medical team for this illness?
