How to create a privacy zone on Strava

Use privacy zones to hide specific addresses on Strava.

Strava has a solution for users with privacy concerns.

Strava is a fitness tracking app that incorporates social media features. It allows you to record a wide variety of activities from running to windsurfing and share your activities with your followers. Depending on your privacy settings, your workout route is shared on to everyone, to your followers, or kept private. Unfortunately, if you make your activities only visible to your followers or completely private you cannot participate in challenges on the app.

If you're nervous about posting runs that begin or end at your home or work, but you still want to participate in challenges, Strava has the option to create privacy zones which hide specific areas in your workout. You can adjust the size of the radius from one-eighth mile to one mile. The privacy zone only applies where you start and end an activity, so if you pass through a privacy zone on a run it will still show up on your activity map.

Because we know how important your safety is, we've broken down to how to create a privacy zone on Strava.
