trying to understand why Samsung provide a service like global step challenge and then allow cheats to dominate the board every month.. it's not rocket science that if someone dies 200000 steps a day they are cheating or if on average they have done 2 steps a second , every second eithout sleep since the challenge opened they are cheating. why don't Samsung care about this and stop it ? it puts a lot of people off using the service

I wish I could have covered this amount of steps legitimately - wait sorry obviously cheating

Rather frustrating but I'm happy competing and where I rank being honest and my real effort

put it into context. If you do one step a second you could do this amount in a full year if you did one step a second every minute of every hour of every day without taking any breaks for 364 days..

I'm impressed with the 99k steps in one day

I totally agree. The Moonlight November 2021 challenge just started today and someone is already at 196,387 steps out of the 200,000 to go. Its only 12:20 pm. Why do they even participate if they are going to beat it in less than one day.

True. At first I thought ok maybe ppl r actually walking or maybe they r putting it in there dog or something but I googled it tonight after see the top 3 ppl  on the leadboard already at 45k steps completed when it's been only 12:30am how in the universe is that even possible. Now I kno how ....

So you mean it's unreasonable to think someone has walked 7.3 mph for the last 12.5 hours without stopping? It's not even halfway believeable, I don't know what they get out of blatantly cheating
