Can I undo or delete Kudos?

There is no way to "undo" or take back Kudos at this time. Sorry for the trouble.

  • I cannot believe Strava does not have a method of removing a Kudos. This seems like an easy fix!! I accidentally gave a kudos to someone and have no way of removing it. Minor League programming. Please fix this!!!!!

  • I accidentally gave kudos to a friend of a friend, who I don’t know myself, for an activity they did years ago. I feel mortified and would like to undo it. Please facilitate and introduce this feature.

  • How hard would it be to create an "edit" or "undo" on Kudo's and comments for us Premium users? Please?

  • I recently emailed Strava about this topic, after posting in July.  They instructed me to post in the community forum - obviously I've done that...as have many of us.

    The best thing you can do is continue to comment here.  Not sure anyone is listening, but I've learned emailing them does not help.

    Hey Strava, are you listening?

  • Just done same.. Did a Google on & it brought me to this thread, which has at least reassured me I'm not the only one to have made this embarrassing digital gaff!! Grrr. Someone I was just simply randomly curious about, but neither know or admire. Damn! Incredibly easy button to tap by accident being on right of screen & leave a permanent mark behind, but then I suppose, to be fair, the clever boffins at Strava never entertained the rising incidence of 'mis-kudosing' by nosey - oops, I mean seeking inspiration! - athletes! However, 'undo' button please, nice Strava people! :-)

  • What's wrong with extra kudos!??  I'd be happy to have see an unexpected kudos on my feed... random acts of kindness?  Don't get wrapped up in just being "too nice", never regret being too nice!

  • It used to be possible to do just by clicking the thumb (now orange) again (turns back to gray).  PLEASE bring back this simple functionality!

  • ^ ^ That

    Mark Holliday...yes!

    "You are about to give kudos to [name]. Giving kudos on Strava a permanent action--i.e. it is un-doable. Do you wish to proceed? Yes/

  • Seriously though- why can't we undo them?? It makes no sense.

  • Does it really matter? I get random kudos occasionally, probably because of someone else's fat fingers. It only has meaning if you give it meaning. And if you give a kudo by mistake, just move on. Life is too short to get bent out of shape about tiny problems.

  • Hey, Strava! I've been following this thread for nearly three years now, since I first posted about the issue.
    It's really unbelievable to see comments and traffic to this question for three years, with nothing being done on your part to make changes. And now, with people (including myself) paying for your service, it's truly a disservice to us all.
    There hasn't been an official Strava response to this thread since 2014. Will you follow up please?

  • Strava, you've had enough time to fix this. I've clicked on plenty of useless updates of yours; why not make this your next one?

  • I can't understand why this can't be allowed. Nor why Strava don't give their rational/justification for it.
    Perhaps some clever clogs will work out how to intercept the kudos message inside Strava (do the job for them), I'll be happier to not have the ability to give kudo rather than not be able to take it back when done inadvertently.
    I was woken at 3am by some stranger giving me Strava kudos, I assume a mistake my him. And peevingly in my sleepy state I gave him one back - the last this I wanted to do.
    Nor do I want to give a thumb's up to idiots, show-off, aggressors, dictators, rude people, ...

  • Please add the ability to remove a kudos. As others have said it is easy to do accidentally when scrolling on a phone.

  • Strava's power and influence is in the social part of the broader Strava community. On the app, I can't see who's given kudos without clicking kudos. Get what's happening there...

    To see who's given another user kudos, I need to click Kudos, and the app gives them kudos, and I didn't want to give them kudos, but I can't un-kudos them, so I can't be social and see without giving kudos. Your product manager, (insert the your accountable product manager here) forces me to give kudos to see that list. This part of your solution sucks!

    See how that is crap, Mr/Ms. Strava app/website product manager? This is to you, specifically.

    Make your experience more frictionless, please.

  • PLEASE, PLEASE provide an “undo kudos” facility. It seems to be a rather simple thing to provide, and I cannot understand why it has not implemented. I Gave kudos to what I thought was a normal bike ride, which turned out to be on a e-bike.

  • I do not believe that for four years people ask for the undo feature and Strava didn't do it yet, this is not a good relationship between Strava and the athletics users

  • Amusingly Strava have introduced new and exciting ways to give kudos across many social media platforms, but you still can’t undo a kudos given in error, despite assurances I was given by direct from an employee, go premium what’s the point, Strava it’s time to act on this!

  • Dear Strava - I have been following this complaint string for over 2.5 years now and I have see no response what so ever from you on any reasoning for your decision to not implement an undo option on Kudos based on all of the input that you have received. To not provide any comment is a slap in the face of your "customers". Remember, those who are paying you are your customers. Please start treating us like a valuable customers. There are other options.

  • 5 years people have been asking about this really simple change that's evidently important to some. This attitude is why I don't bother subscribing to Strava

  • Wasting your breath. So long as you keep paying Strava, they dgaf. They do what they want and the customer can f.o

  • It's appalling that the given solution is, "There is no way to..." — when this is the exact deal-breaker that disillusioned and alienated us in the first place. For every user taking time to comment on this thread, there must be thousands equally infuriated but without enough confidence in the system to bother writing. I hope a simple fix comes before any further boycott of users.

  • Please implement a toggle for kudos. If you can Like/Unlike videos in YouTube, why can't you have a similar function in Strava?

  • Gave kudos for a ride that was flagged. Buddy obviously got in his car with his Strava still tracking. Shouldn't get kudos, and I look like an idiot. Let me undo.
