Your step count data is regularly uploaded to our servers from your device, then this information is updated whenever you interact with the app. The data transfer can take a little time, so you might notice a minor difference between your device step count data and your step count in Gets Active. If your step count hasn't updated at all, please try visiting different areas of the app as this should reset it. If your step count still hasn't updated after an hour, please reach out to Customer Support support@winnieapp.com



If you have won a cash prize from an in-app competition, this will be automatically credited to your wallet within the Winnie by Lightfoot app. Cash prizes can be withdrawn at any point individually or in bulk to your personal PayPal account, or donated to charity via the wallet page.

If you are entered into a competition and achieve your target, you will be presented with a single prize ticket or multiple tickets, depending on the competition. You can check whether you are a winner by clicking the 'Reveal Result' button.

If you are unable to reveal the results due to a technical glitch, the prize reveal will still be available if you have a winning ticket.

If the competition has disappeared from the dashboard, it means you didn't win a prize this time. To access the competition details, go to the 'Ended' tab on the Competition page, as all past competitions are listed there.

Gets Active takes your step count from your device's default health data. The simplest way to count your steps is to take your phone with you when you go for a walk so Apple Health or Health Connect can track them directly and share this information with Winnie by Lightfoot.

If you forget to take your phone with you, there is a way to sync your device's health data with other activity apps like Fitbit - see the next FAQ for more information.

To find out more about how your data is being processed, visit our Privacy Policy page.
