Social media applications have become the new address/detail book. Yeah, and similarly, Strava can reveal a lot of information about you. You do have the liberty to hide your home address from random strangers. But at times, you will have to stop a specific person from intruding and viewing all your activities. So, let us get started on how to block someone on Strava.
The default settings allow anyone on the internet to view your activities and, as a result, work out where you live. All this is super easy if you know how the internet works these days.
What would be the advantage of Blocking Someone on Strava?
Well, blocking someone on Strava is a great help as it will do the following.
- It will remove them from your follower list and vise versa. It is more like mutual unfollowing initiated from your end.
- Apart from the above said, the same person will not be able to follow you again. And just will not be able to view your detailed activities.
- Blocking will completely hide your profile from the person except for your profile picture, bio, total activity count for the last month, that week’s activity statistics, and how many followers you have. It will appear as it appears to a person who does not follow you.
Well, there is one thing. If you are anyhow into a publicly viewable activity, like for example, say a top 10 position in a segment Leaderboard, that is a problem. Because in this manner, anyone will be able to see a summary of the activity there. However, there is an advantage to it, that they can not click on it to view detailed information.
Will Blocking Trigger a notification to the person?
Yes, the most important thing. When you block them, they would not get any notification or any other kind of message. But when they try to view your profile, they will surely get to know that something has been changed.
