Of all the young people using miMove, very few seem to fabricate or exaggerate their activity data. If they did, we would ask, why are they motivated to be dishonest? Are there prizes on offer?

miMove is only available via a school (or other type of organization like a sports club or a health promoter). It is not available to individuals. As such, it is ed-tech i.e. technology for educational purposes just like any other apps that are used in school. These are always paid for by the school.

miMove can be accessed on any android or IOS device (phone or tablet). It can also be accessed on most Chromebooks.
