Need to be able to hide HR data as a privacy setting

It is great that Strava has enabled the ability to hide HR-data (ex. heart rate) onan activity level, but this shoudl be a privacy setting that I can set to default hiding HR data for every activity I record.

  • Just out of curiosity, why would you want to hide HR data in some cases? Just curious mostly. I know of a recent incident where a guy I know tried to fake a KOM on a climb by driving it just a little faster than you can ride it. Most of the data looked like it was plausible (although not necessarily for that person with the training they have been doing) except for the HR. The HR data that was posted with the file was the giveaway that made it obvious, maxing out at 106 for a 15 minute hill climb. If he could have hidden the HR data on that file, it would have been harder to identify it as a fake file.

  • Voting for this because I agree that the option should exist.

    Work around option #1) find the "submit a request" button at the bottom of this page, and ask Strava support if you can deny them "consent to process and store your health-related data." See https://support.strava.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000556410

    Work around option #2) Change all of your activities to private by default, then you can manually set them to public and check that heart rate box as desired. It's just as tedious, but at least it prevents the data from ever going public by default.

  • In response about hiding heart rate to fake KOM etc..
    Strava could implement a similar concept to the challenges (activities have to be public to count for the challenge)... Likewise, they could make it to where heart rate must be public for races, KOM, and the like.

  • I don't think that's fair because a) not everyone has a HR sensor, b) those sensors aren't always very accurate, c) not consenting to share health related data publicly shouldn't be used as a means to deny participation in a challenge, and d) this is just Strava... don't forget to have fun and not take it so seriously... no organization anywhere requires HR data during competition.

  • I am no longer using strava because of this. I check back in from time-to-time to see if this glaring problem has been addressed.  It is unfortunate that so much time has passed and yet this issue remains unresolved.

  • Jason the reason you might want to hide HR data is not to do with any KOM points or anything related to cycling. If your (and millions of others) HR data is public, private health funds might swift through it, detect you have a higher than average risk of HR failure and make your premiums more expensive or directly deny them. This is not fiction. This is just one example, there are many many other sinister uses of your data.

  • +1 from my side, this would be great and should be available.
