I'm creating a lightfoot halfling bard via 5e Companion App, and it automatically added a proficiency to Acrobatics. Is that legit, or do I need to remove it?

    \$\begingroup\$ Are you asking about the +2 or the proficiency? What is the total skill modifier on acrobatic? If you can, please add what background you use for your character. \$\endgroup\$ – Vylix Jul 8 '19 at 7:34

Lightfoot Halflings do not get any skill bonuses

They have the Lucky trait:

When you roll a 1 on the d20 for an attack roll, ability check, or saving throw, you can reroll the die and must use the new roll.

They have Brave:

You have advantage on saving throws against being frightened.

They have Halfling Nimbleness:

You can move through the space of any creature that is of a size larger than yours.

And they are Naturally Stealthy:

You can attempt to hide even when you are obscured only by a creature that is at least one size larger than you.

They also get +2 Dex from the halfling race, and +1 Cha from the lightfoot halfling subrace.

Dexterity is tied to Acrobatics, and so the +2 racial bonus will increase Acrobatics by +1. Any proficiency with the skill would be from a class, background, or gear.
