Check if you are at risk
We have created a little helper to show you the start and end points of all your public Strava rides. We don't store any data, but only show you your public activities. We will never share this information with anyone but yourself.
As a bicycle insurance company, we take our customers’ data and privacy seriously. Customer data is encrypted at all times and never shared with third-parties without explicit consent. We’ve developed a tool that allows you to identify whether you’re exposing your home location to potential thieves by posting public rides on Strava.
Our app contains a guide on how you can hide private locations using Strava’s Privacy Zones feature, as well as other recommendations for improving the privacy of your account. We map out the start and end points of all your public Strava rides, and identify any recurring locations as being visible to thieves. This leaves you free to enjoy all of the kudos, segments and challenges that Strava provides.
