Flybys Privacy Controls

What are Flybys?

Flyby is a Strava Labs tool that lets you playback your activity, as well as those near you, on a map and timeline. You can access your Flyby by tapping the button on your activity details page on the web. Alternatively, you can manually enter your activity ID into the Flyby tool.

Managing your Flyby Privacy Controls

  • On the web, go to your Settings page by hovering over your profile picture in the top right and selecting 'Settings.'
    • Click on the 'Privacy Controls' tab on the left side of the page.
    • Select 'Everyone' or 'No One' under 'Flybys.'
  • On Android, select ‘Settings’ from the navigation menu and select 'Privacy Controls' on the next page.
    • Select 'Flybys' to choose between 'Everyone' or 'No One.'
  • On iOS, select 'More' on the bottom right-hand corner of your screen and select 'Privacy Controls' on the next screen.
    • Select 'Flybys' to choose between 'Everyone' or 'No One.'

How it Works

You have the ability to opt out of this feature entirely if you do not want your activities to be included in Flybys.

  • When you select Everyone:
    • All Strava Athletes:
      • Will be able to see if you crossed paths or were nearby on a Flyby.
      • May be able to click your Flyby avatar to open your Strava activity. If your activity settings are set to “Followers”, non-followers will not have access to your activity details page if they try to click through a Flyby.  
    • Anyone on the web:
      • Will be able to replay your Flyby if they have a link to your activity. 
  • When you select No One:
    • No One:
      • Will be able to see you on Flybys, not even yourself. You can still view other athlete’s Flybys if they have the setting enabled.
