Strava API Changes – Rate Limiting and Increased Privacy

Posted by & filed under Privacy, Strava API.

A few changes are coming to the Strava api over the next couple of weeks, the main details of which I’ll leave for their official announcement. There are however a couple of things in those changes that will affect VeloViewer to a limited extent so here’s some info on what that will mean.


Understanding Strava’s Enhanced Privacy Mode

Posted by & filed under Privacy.

Over the last year I’ve had a number of people getting in touch (along with a couple of my own club mates) saying things along the lines of not needing to set up a Privacy Zone to hide where they live because they are using the Enhanced Privacy Mode in their Strava settings. This is not the case. The only ways to hide you home’s location on an activity will be by using a Privacy Zone, marking you activity as private or not uploading them to Strava at all!
