Strava Tips – Hide Your Home!

There have been a few cases in the media recently where thieves have targeted cyclists homes to steal their bikes by using information available on social media sites, like Strava, to discover where you live! In Strava there is an option that allows you to obfuscate where you actually live and it’s really easy to apply this setting!

When logged in to Strava go to your Settings page and from there select Privacy. With the Privacy settings there is a section to “Hide your house/office on your activity maps“. Simply enter your postcode and select the radius, e.g. 1/2 mile and then click Create Privacy Zone. See blow:

This will hide the exact location of your home and show it as a 1 mile circle. Thus making it harder for these unscrupulous people to identify exactly where you live from your Strava page and activities.
