Hide photo time and start time

I want to be able to block my start time if my ride, why is this not an option? Also when you put pictures on this also shows the time!! I don't want people knowing a start time of my ride! Where is the privacy in this, a date will suffice. Can this be addressed asap otherwise as a premium user I will have to use another app. I have also seen loads of people want this please sort strava and hide start and photo times.

  • This is crazy disappointing. Seems they did everything except add this feature.

    Will Elle comment on this ?

  • Hi Folks, 

    Thanks for adding your thoughts. I don't have an update for you on this topic, unfortunately. Just wanted to drop in so there wasn't silence. 

    Cheers.

  • Seriously, what would be great is an honest answer. For SURE developper have talked about it and technology speaking this is really simple. So there MUST be a reason (ethical, strategic, whatever). Just tell us if you don't plan to add this features so we can decide if Strava is for us or not. And if you will be implementing it, just tell us when...even if it is in 5 years! 

    Thanks!

  • I recently made the comment on their Facebook page. It did get a response ... which is more than we can say for most of this thread.

  • I think that the ability to hide start and end times is a real let down. I almost certainly won’t renew my subscription unless they do it unfortunately :-(.

  • Another option might be to go into phone settings and change the time manually prior to recording activity - this would at least hide the real start time from others.  But seriously Strava, get with it!

  • The original request/post for this is 5 years old ... they know. They just don’t care.

  • From what I can tell, they have zero intention of doing this. The original thread for this request started in 2014. They know and they have decided, for reasons they will not share, that this is not something they want to do. We have to decided if we want to continue to use the app. Strava knows this as well, and they are betting we continue with to use their service regardless.

  • I can’t believe how many years this goes back! I get I can change my privacy settings to private and followers and all but a simple thing like just showing date of ride would help hugely from a safety issue as people flag no one wants people knowing when you regular ride and run a) knowing your home is empty and b) and more sinister knowing where to find you!!!
    Come on Strava!!!!

  • They clearly don’t care.

  • This is a basic privacy and safety issue, and should be a trivial update to implement. How has this not already been done?
