Privacy Settings

How does Strava protect my privacy?

Strava allows you to make any individual activity private. You can also create a privacy zone perimeter around any address like your home, office, or any place you tend to start activities from that you’d like to keep private. You can make your profile viewable only by signed in Strava members, and abbreviate your last name for more anonymity. In addition, you can require approval before allowing someone to follow you. Learn more about privacy settings.
