How to Report Cheating on Strava

Remove inaccurate or false times from Segment Leaderboards: Flag an Activity

Follow these steps from the Strava website* to flag the activity and remove it from leaderboards. When you flag an activity, a notification is sent to that athlete to inform them of the flag action.  

*Activity flagging is not available on the Strava mobile app at this time. 

  1. Find the segment time on the leaderboard and click through to view the Strava Activity page that you wish to flag. 
  2. Use the 'wrench' icon at the left side of the page to select 'Flag Ride/Run.'  
  3. Select the correct reason for the flag and leave descriptive and thorough comments.
  4. When you're done, press the "Flag" button. All the public results will be removed from the Segment Leaderboards. 

See our Segment Leaderboard Guidelines for more info.
