You can hide the following stats from your activities when they appear in other athlete’s feeds or when others view your activity details.
- Heart rate
- Pace or speed
This setting can be enabled on individual activities and can always be adjusted in the future if you change your mind. Please note that stats hidden from the activity page may still be visible to other athletes elsewhere in the product. Additionally, other athletes may be able to deduce stats that have been explicitly hidden using information that remains visible.
How to Hide Stats
You can also hide your heart rate via the upload/save screen, see step 4.
- Locate the activity on which you’d like to hide your stats.
- Click the ellipsis icon (three dots) in the upper right-hand corner.
- Click Edit Activity.
- Scroll down and click the eye icon under "Hide Stats".
- Toggle the switch on (it will turn orange) next to the stat(s) you wish to hide to enable.
The option to hide heart rate data can also be found on the Strava website. At this time, pace/speed and power can only be hidden from the mobile app.
- Locate the activity on which you’d like to hide your heart rate data on Strava.com.
- Click the option to edit (pencil icon).
- Click the box next to Hide Heart Rate to enable this setting.
Can I hide my stats by default?
You cannot set a default preference to hide your activity stats. By default, all stats will be shown to other athletes, but you will always have the option to adjust this setting on the edit or upload screen.
Can I still see my own stats?
Yes, you will still be able to see any stats you've hidden on your activities.
If I hide my stats, will they still contribute to training features like Fitness and Freshness or Relative Effort?
Yes, hidden data will still count towards these features. Relative Effort will also be hidden from other athletes if you choose to hide your heart rate, however.
Can I bulk update old activities so that my stats are hidden?
You can hide your heart rate from all your previous activities using the instructions outlined here. At this time, it is not possible to hide your pace/speed or power in bulk, however.
How is hiding heart rate different than approving/denying Strava from processing health-related data?
Hiding heart rate will allow you to continue seeing this data on your activities, but hide it from other athletes. Denying Strava consent to process and store your health-related data will remove heart rate data entirely. It will be stripped from your activity files so neither you nor anyone else will see it.
