Strava is a great tool for cyclists and runners. It’s easy to use, elegant and gives those with competitive tendencies the opportunity to stretch themselves.
But, what about the security implications of showing a public route with a clear start and finish point? For cyclists, this means giving away the rough area where you live / work and presumably where you keep your bike(s) (or running shoes). One option is to manually start and stop Strava once you’re away from your home or office, but this is cumbersome and you are prone to forget.
There is a better and easier way however.
All you need to do is log into your Strava account, go to “Settings” then “Privacy”. On this page you will see the option to hide your home or office from your routes (you can have multiple privacy locations). It’s simple, it works and gives a bit more peace of mind.
