Aggregated Data Usage Privacy Controls

The Aggregated Data Usage privacy control allows you to determine whether your activities contribute to community-powered features such as Strava Metro, the Global Heatmap, Points of Interest, and Start/End Points.

How it Works

  • When you enable the toggle to “Contribute your activity data to de-identified, aggregate data sets”:
    • Anyone on the web:
      • Will see your aggregated and de-identified contributions to community-powered features such as Metro, Heatmap, Points of Interest, and Start/End points.
    • No one:
      • Will see contributions from activities that you’ve made 'Only You.'
  • When you disable the toggle to “Contribute your activity data to de-identified, aggregate data sets”:
    • No one:
      • Will see contributions from activities you’ve uploaded, regardless of the activities’ privacy controls.

Managing your Aggregated Data Usage Privacy Controls

  • On the web, hover over your profile picture in the top right and select Settings.
    1. Click on the Privacy Controls tab on the left side of the page and scroll down to “Aggregated Data Usage.”
    2. Select or deselect “Contribute your activity data to de-identified, aggregate data sets.”
  • On the mobile app, select 'Profile' > 'Settings' (gear icon in the upper right-hand corner) > 'Privacy Controls.'
    1. Tap Privacy Controls > Aggregated Data Usage.
    2. Select or deselect “Contribute your activity data to de-identified, aggregate data sets.”
