  • Accidentally gave kudos, being unable to undo that reduces my privacy on Strava.

  • Photos should be default "only me" and you should be able to select which ones you want to share with followers or everyone.

  • I generally don't care who sees my activity but it would be nice to have privacy settings for each activity.  In my case, I track my cool downs (usually walking) but I feel like I'm fishing for validation anytime I get kudos for 500 meter walk after completing a 6 mile run. I know I can change the setting for that individual entry after the fact.  But I'd like to permanently set Walking as private to me while leaving all other activities available to the community. No need to respond, I'd just like this recorded as a "Nice to Have".

  • Problem:  Not sure if this has been mentioned before, apologies if it has. I have a privacy radius set around my house so that any runs I do that start and end at my house are hidden which is great for any runs I do on my own. However, I also sometimes have friends come over for a run so for example sometimes there may be two or three of us running from my house. When we log our runs on Strava afterwards my start and end points are hidden from everyone on my activity map (including the people I ran with) except for me. But it'll say on Strava "Richard ran Morning Run with Runner X and 1 other" and anyone can click on their runs instead and see exactly where we started and finished, thus making my privacy radius completely invalid.

    Solution:  I propose that if for example 3 people run together and the start and end point of that run falls within one of those people's privacy radius' then it should apply to all 3 people. It won't make any difference to the 3 people themselves as they can each view the complete activity map on their own run, just that anyone else that views their activity the same as if they view mine at the moment, it will hide the exact start and finish points.

    Obviously this applies to all applicable activities, not just running as per my example.

  • The new privacy function to hide your start/end points need a "Select on Map" option. Many strava users live in places without addresses thereby making the current function useless. Auto-population does not work. 

    Please let us select using a map or make it more easy to modify on maps. Thank you.

  • Regarding blocked people: I would love it if there was a way to hide the people you  have blocked from leaderboards. I know you can't take them off of the leaderboard, but I would suggest that if you have a specific person blocked, they would appear as "strava user" or something generic like that on the leaderboard. And then they wouldn't be able to see you on the leaderboard either. Thanks ou!

  • Here's something I've spotted that I think should be on the Strava Development Plan:

    In Privacy Controls on my Strava App I have set 'hide start and end points at a specific address' to be a mile from my home address.

    The issue with this is that if anyone else visits me and we leave from my house, the app will report 'Chris L rode with...' and another person's route will be visible to whoever is allowed to see it and they could deduce where *my* home address is.

    I suggest that the 'Rode with' feature needs to respect all other riders' privacy settings and hide *everyone's* start and end points, as determined by the highest privacy setting of whoever was amongst the group of riders that went out together.

  • Not logged in users cannot see shared activity

    For not logged in users, it is not possible to see an activity shared with them, although the Privacy setting is set to "Everyone". Such a user lands on a page where the user needs to register or login.

    Sharing with not registered/not logged in users should however be possible according to this:
    https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/articles/216919377-Activity-Privacy-Controls

    • Anyone on the web:
      • Will see a logged-out version of your activity page which will include activity distance, elevation, moving time, pace/speed, calories, relative effort, photos (unless profile is set to followers), map, elevation profile, top achievements, splits, popular segment matches and your effort time, kudos, and comments.

  • Jan S From what you quoted, Strava says you'll see "a logged-out version" -- emphasis on "version" meaning it's not the same activity page and details you see when logged in. For a public activity, someone not logged in will see some super basic limited info, like the name of the activity, the map, and a select few thumbnails of pictures (but unable to click through them or see larger size), and no splits. Of course, it will still encourage someone not logged in to create an account or login.

    If you're not seeing the basics, do double check the privacy of the activity. You can confirm how it looks by opening the activity in a private browser window where you're not logged in.

  • m:  This bugs the heck out of me as well.  If I share my activity on facebook most of my facebook friends (due to not being on strava) can't see much of my stats.  I fully agree with Jan.  If they activity is flagged as "everyone" then it should be EVERYONE.  Not just Strava members because Strava wants more users.

  • Jeremy J. , @ m (sorry, cannot find out how to tag you @ m

    Thanks for answering. My problem is, that although i have the setting on "everyone" (i can see that in my personal settings and in the detail of the activity itself), the non-logged users (incl. me in an incognito window) still get the page where I have to login/register. On that page, there is a text "follow Jan to see this activity, registration is free".
    So i would be totally fine with having some view with basic data of the activity, but I don't have even that :)

  • Jan S: You might want to open a ticket then with Strava.  For my activities I get to see some basic stats and map when looking in incognito.  Maybe there is some setting you have flipped that doesn't allow it, but I don't know.

  • Hey Jan S If your profile's privacy is set to "followers" no one on the web will see a logged-out version of your profile or activity details pages. Others must log in to see your activity details, even if the activity's privacy is adjusted to "everyone". You can read more about our profile privacy controls here.

  • Soren thank you! That was exactly the problem. In order for "web people" to see my activities, i had to set the Profile setting to everyone, not only the Activities. 
    However, i find this confusing, because if there are separate privacy options for Profile and Activities, i would expect that these work independently. I am ok to expose my activities, but not all the profile data or let other to follow me without permission.

    Thanks again Soren !

  • Hi, I have learned how to hide the maps from my activities, but recently the location started showing up at the top of my activities in words (I.e. San Francisco, CA). I was told there was not currently a way to turn off or disable this. I would really like have the option to disable or turn off ALL information regarding location for each activity. The reasons for this are some towns are very small, I don't necessarily want people seeing where my family lives, where I go on vacation, etc. Thank you

  • I want to Hide my clubs and don’t want my followers to know that I joined a club. There are clubs that are named 40s Club, Asian club etc that are kinda specific. It depends where the athlete was located and his openness to the public. The reason that is important is because some are not comfortable or ready to tell the world about some specifics. This way an athlete has an option.

  • Many other posts here; but can the time of activity be optional? date is fine. I do not appreciate my followers knowing clocking in and out times based on my commute ride times.
