Strava, like all social media apps, can reveal a huge amount of information about you. Even if you prevent random strangers from stumbling across your home address, you may sometimes need to actively stop a certain person from seeing what you are doing. How to block someone else on Strava.
By default, everyone on the internet can see your activities and potentially train where you live. Make sure you review your Strava account privacy settings as well.
What does blocking do on Strava?
Blocking someone on Strava:
- Remove them from your followers and you from theirs.
- Prevents them from following you again or showing your activities in detail.
- Hides your profile information in addition to your profile picture, cinema, total activity for the last month, that week̵7;s activity statistics and how many followers you have. This is what someone who does not follow you see when they show your profile, but that’s not really all.
Somewhat surprisingly, if you have a publicly visible activity, such as a top 10 position in a segment list, they will be able to see the summary of that, but they will not be able to click through for a more detailed view.
If you block someone, they do not send a message, but they know something has changed if they try to view your profile.
