We require you to provide your date of birth to use our services in part because knowing your date of birth helps us provide enhanced privacy and safety for minors on our platform. If you are under 18 and create a Strava account after September 3rd, 2021, your privacy settings will be the following:
Only your followers on Strava will be able to see your complete profile. Any athlete who does not follow you on Strava will only be able to see limited information on your profile. They will also need to request your approval before they can follow you on Strava. Learn more about your profile page privacy controls here.
Only your followers on Strava will have access to your activities and your activities will not appear on leaderboards for segments or challenges. Anyone who does not follow you on Strava or who does not have a Strava account will not be able to see your activities. Learn more about your activity privacy controls here.
Group Activities: Followers
Only your followers on Strava will be able to see if you are part of a group activity. Athletes who do not follow you cannot see you if you’re grouped to their activities and cannot see if you are part of another athlete’s group. Learn more about your group activity privacy controls here.
Map Visibility: Hide Start/End of Activity
The first and last 400 meters of your activity will not be visible to other athletes, even if they follow you. You will still be able to see these portions of your own activity highlighted in grey. Learn more map visibility controls here.
Metro: Activities included in Metro and Heatmap
“Heat” from your public activities will be combined with other athletes’ public activities and will be visible on Strava’s global heatmap and in Strava Metro. No one will be able to see heat from activities where the privacy controls are set to ‘Only You’ or from portions of your activity that are hidden. Learn more about your Metro and heatmap privacy controls here.
Local Legends: No One
Your activities will not be counted towards a Local Legend achievement. Learn more about Local Legends here.
Flyby: No One
Flybys provide in-depth activity playbacks and see athletes who were nearby and where you crossed paths. No one will be able to see you on Flybys, not even yourself. Learn more about your Flyby Privacy Controls here.
