Can I undo or delete Kudos?

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

  • Obviously Strava developers never read this.. we need a remove kudos function to remove accidental clicks on give kudos

  • 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 waved at someone when I was running, then I realised it was not who I thought it was. What should I do?!! 😱

  • @Nick Grahame, the difference is your waving wont be available to anyone on the internet to see.

  • And the accidental Kudos is about as transient as the accidental wave. No one cares who gives kudos to who.

  • Wow Strava, that pretty LAMED! For all the technologies, someone can't take the time to address something so simple. Disappointed!!!

  • 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

  • Was reading a comment where someone called my friend a bitch and I accidentally tapped Kudos on his activity. Should be obvious why I'd want to "undo" the kudos, he's a sexist jerk.

  • Dato che è molto facile che accada di mettere un kudos senza volerlo, mi auguro vivamente che possiate abilitare il prima possibile questa funzione, a me è successo di guardare il profilo di una persona che non stimo assolutamente e che mentre nella vita è una pessima persona nello sport va "forte" e quindi il fatto di non poter più togliere il kudos
    mi ha causato molto dispiacere. Grazie per la disponibilità.

    e sono

  • Stupid. If you give Kudos by accident, why can't you just select it again to remove? Every other social network has this option.

  • Thanks Chris... It is beyond my comprehension that this is so complicated it can't be implemented. There are about 200 comments on this thread since it was created in February 2014 so some interest in this feature exists. Is there some database issue they don't want to fix to allow decrementing a count? They already track who liked which activity. How hard can it possibly be to remove an entry in a database and recalculate the kudos total?

  • Yea it's pretty obvious that Strava doesn't give a crap about the opinion of their customers. Stop paying for features (golden cheetah has them beat in the metrics arena anyway) and downvote the app. That's all you can do.

  • As Strava is completely ignoring this request literally since years, without even commenting in a way that would make it at least a try to explain, my take here is the following:

    Someone inside Strava marketing / product management had the stupid idea to take the accumulated figure of Kudos added in Strava as a kind of KPI for the platform's success. So allowing Kudos to be removed would hurt their defined "success" KPI, that unfortunately collides with a minor customer satisfaction issue. But sales/success KPI overrules customer satisfaction. Stupid, but perhaps not fully fictional explanation ... ...

  • This makes no sense. The percentage of people who would actually un-kudo has to be tiny. I've only had it happen once or twice that I can remember. Unfortunately the first time I wanted to do this was also when I got stuck on this thread. I agree with Strava that most of the time it is a pretty small thing and doesn't really matter but every now and then there are real reasons for wanting to un-do. I guess the only real option at this point is to delete the account which gave the kudo and create a new one. This is a pretty stupid workaround and I'm not even sure if that is enough.

    It would be so nice to just have this trivial feature added so we can move on. Pretty much every other social network accepts that it is okay to have people remove likes. Please Strava add this basic feature.

  • Here’s the thing:
    1) This is a basic feature of every other social network out there.
    2) Users expect to have it.
    3) Users feel crummy when they can’t undo an unintentional Like.
    4) Most importantly, as a software architect of 9 years, I just can’t see how this isn’t trivial to implement.

    Just like the whole “1 or 2 decimals” debacle, this is another case of Strava being inexplicably cautious in implementing a feature that people universally want, the lack of which makes people feel bad, and which would only take a few minutes to fix. The decision-making at this company just defies all logic.
