Android App Settings

Accessing your Setting

Tap the Menu button - the three lines - at the top-left of any page within Strava, and select Settings. Please note that if your phone has a built-in Menu button, you will not see the three dots; you should use your phone's Menu button instead. From your Setting page, you can manage your Summit subscription, link other services such as Instagram, MyFitnessPal or Google Fit and manage your preferences.
