Strava uses location information to create maps of activities. Strava has privacy settings to help control who can see what information and where. These settings can be a little overwhelming, so we've summarised them for you.
There are three main Strava privacy controls in your Strava Privacy settings.
Your Profile page on Strava displays information about you, such as your name, activities and followers. There are 2 levels:
If you are new to Strava we recommend setting your profile to Followers.
This is the default privacy setting for your activities. You can override this for each individual activity, so if you have a particular activity you wish to keep more private than normal then you can override that on that particular activity.
We recommend setting activities to Everyone or Followers.
Remember these are default settings and you can over-ride them for specific activities.
No details for activities which are Private are shown anywhere in Active Teams.
There are 3 ways to control what location or route information is shown on your activity maps.
We recommend setting the first and second options above.
