  • Robert Mountjoy Can you please submit a ticket to our support team so we can assist?

    Christopher H. While it isn't possible to prevent your followers from favoriting you, you can see who has chosen to do so via the mobile app. Navigate to your profile > Click on "Followers" > at the top, you'll see who has favorited you. 

    LoLo C you can see what information is always public by visiting this help center article: https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/articles/360034758331-Your-Privacy-Defaults-when-you-Create-a-Strava-Account

  • Jojo, thank you for replying. I know I can see who favorited me. I don't have a problem with that so much. I just don't want automatic notifications going out to people when I finish an activity and think that Strava should give control over that to the athlete whose activity it is, not their followers. If Strava is concerned about our privacy, I hope you guys will reconsider how the Favorite function works. Otherwise, I'm going to start blocking people I don't really want to have to block.

  • Please increase the largest radius option on privacy zones. In a city, a 5/8 mile radius (the current max radius) covers hundreds or thousands of households, but in rural areas, a 5/8 mile radius may only include one or two houses.

  • Really great feature would be an option for default private activities and allow a setting for a minimum distance for an activity to be set public, per activity type

  • How to use geographic coordinates instead of an address at privacy zone? already changed several times the format and it´s never correctly located.

    Can you please inform in which format to put, and the geographic coordinate system. 

    Is that WGS84?

  • I would like my weekly stats to be shown on my profile again to people who are not following me. Now the yearly stats have even disappeared on my profile to my non followers , please at lease bring this back. I am not able to have everyone I would like as a follower on NRL page due to personal and work related reasons , and still been able to see the weekly/yearly stats on each other’s page has been very useful, with still been able to keep the rest of our profile private as it is needed for work and personal reasons. Please bring this feature back.

  • 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".

  • 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.

  • 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 :)

  • 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.

  • I second a lot of the comments posted here. The ability to hide or randomize start times is a GREAT privacy feature to add. With the pandemic I am sure that most everyone is starting runs at/near their homes. 

    I also like ability to regenerate the privacy zone but I think this should be done also at random without the user having to go in and manually regenerate it.

  • I enjoyed a ride to Plymstock Devon UK today and was delighted to find I had a few PRs on Strava Segments upon return. Alas one of these segments had been given a very offensive name. I don't really want this attached to my profile or stats.

    I could maybe delete this segement on my record but it may show up when I next ride it and also others who may also be offended. Can Strava change or get the name changed please.

    I am going to leave it on my profile for the next few days so that any moderators can see it.

  • Jojo I would please like the ability to control who can favorite me in their Following list and then receive notifications when I upload an activity. I don't mind if someone wants to go searching for me and my activities in Strava, but automated real-time notifications of my activity is a bit much IMO.

  • Hello Strava Team, I have a question regarding privacy settings. Would you consider making an option that would allow followers to see my complete routes, but for public, the privacy zone would apply? In my opinion, this would be a quite realistic use case for users who would like to share their routes with everybody, but hide their address from people they don't know.
    Thanks for your consideration, Tamás

  • 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.

  • GPX download control

    It would be good to have a way to control who can download your gpx by blocking the gpx download button for all your activities or even better for each particular activity.

    Right now to avoid somebody to download your gpx you have to hide the ride from everybody. However I have no problem with my followers knowing in which area I rode, but that doesn't mean I want them to be able to download the gpx and get all the details of my ride: lines, entrance and exit points, etc. Sometimes these info is personal and I don't want all of my followers to have access to it.

    Thanks for considering this idea and thanks for a great app!
