Managing Your Privacy on Strava
Nothing is more important than the safety of our Gippy Girl community.
Strava is special in that you can record activities anywhere in the world and connect with like minded people along the way. One of the ways that Strava keep you exercising is by using accountability — the ability to share your workouts with friends so you can urge each other onward — but wanting to share with your pals is different than wanting to share with an app developer or some anonymous marketer.
If you are concerned about someone knowing where you are, where you ran or where you live, Strava have got the tools to help you take control and we will show you how.
Privacy Level That’s Right for You
The simple level is to choose to not use any privacy controls and make your info available publicly, like it would be on Twitter. If you prefer a higher level of privacy, you can choose greater privacy to add additional controls. This allows you to manage who can follow you and see certain profile details. You can learn more here.
Or pehaps you’d like to chose the highest level of privacy. Choosing to make your actvites private, means you will be the only person who can see this activity on Strava. Learn more about making your activities private here.
More Control on Strava
- Profile Page
Set your profile privacy control to Everyone or followers depending on your choice of privacy
- Add Privacy Zones
A privacy zone will hide the portion of your activity that starts or ends in your zone from everyone. If you don’t want anyone to know where you live or work for example, you can set up a privacy zone 200m-1km. Learn more here.
- Metro and Heatmap
Metro and Heatmap use and display combined data about where Strava members have recorded activities. They do not include activities, or portions of activities, marked private by Strava members. To Learn more.
Flyby is a Strava Labs tool that lets you playback your activity, as well as those near you, on a map and timeline. If you do not want other people to see your activities that appear in Flybys, you can change this in your flybys settings.
- Group Activity Privacy
The social experience is part of what makes Strava a motivating, fun and engaging app. This feature detects if members= record activities together. When this happens, your activities are grouped and displayed according to your choice. Learn More.
- Hide Activities From Leaderboards
Activities with this setting allowed will not appear on public leaderboards. If you’ve chosen to join a challenge, your activities will appear on public challenge leaderboards. You can avoid this by not participating in challenges.
- Training Log
By default, your training log is private. You can make this public if you’d like to share with your friends.
- Sharing my activities with my followers
Strava occasionally sends emails and push notifications to your followers to share your recent activities with them. If you would prefer that Strava not send these notifications, you can opt-out in your settings.
Now How to Find Your Privacy Setting
Accessing your privacy settings is simple. On your computer, you click ‘setting’ in the dropdown under your profile photo then select ‘privacy’ in the menu on the left of the screen. From the mobile app click profile, cog wheel in right hand corner, select “privacy controls”

Gippy Girls Can, tell us what you think!
Gippy Girls Can, tell us what you think!
All of our supporters, including you, have played such a huge a role in sharing our Gippy Girls Can and VicHealth’s This Girl Can – Victoria campaign far and wide to inspire as many Gippsland women as possible to get active.
We would love to hear more about your experience as a Gippy Girl, including what worked well, what could be improved and the best way to service our Gippsland community, so we can continue to make this campaign and physical activity programs even better and stronger in the future!
Over the last 12 months, GippSport was lucky enough to have received funding from the Latrobe Health Innovation Zone to roll out a range of free/subsidise physical activity programs for women and girls in the Latrobe City area. This has resulted in 350+ sessions offered to the community!
As we come close to the end of our funding for the Latrobe City area, we will be looking at sustainable models to keep our Rock Up Netball & Yoga programs running, but also how to keep them at a low cost to you as a participant.
We would appreciate your time to share your thoughts with us via the survey link below. This survey is opened to all Gippy Girls across Gippsland.

On behalf of GippSport and Gippy Girls Can, thank you for your support!

This Girl Can campaign gets the royal treatment
VicHealth’s This Girl Can – Victoria campaign came to life on the lawns of Government House this morning in a special event in honour of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
More than 150 Victorian women delivered a live version of the empowering campaign for Their Royal Highnesses proving that Victorian women aren’t afraid to have fun, get sweaty and be active – even in front of royalty.
VicHealth CEO Jerril Rechter said the event was about empowering everyday women to get active however, wherever and whenever they wanted without being judged.
“We want all women – no matter how sweaty they get, how red their face is or how good they are – to feel comfortable about getting out there and giving physical activity a go. That’s what This Girl Can – Victoria is all about,” Ms Rechter said.
“This Girl Can – Victoria features women from all walks of life – real, everyday women of all ages, from diverse cultural backgrounds, with varying levels of ability, different body shapes and sizes.
“We were excited and honoured to be able to show The Duke and Duchess how Victorian women are smashing the outdated stereotypes about what a woman can or can’t do in the gym, on the sporting field and in our neighbourhoods.”
VicHealth’s edgy campaign is based on Sport England’s viral hit This Girl Can. It’s proven to be a winning formula, with the Australian version achieving the equivalent level of success as its English counterpart in its first year, inspiring one in seven Victorian women to get active.
“We’re so thrilled the campaign is achieving its goal of empowering women to smash their fears of judgement and intimidation holding them back from being active,” Ms Rechter said.
“It’s an honour to be part of The Duke and Duchess’ visit to Melbourne, and we hope it will inspire even more Victorian women to get active and do the things they love.”
The next phase of This Girl Can – Victoria will launch early next year with the aim of inspiring even more women to join the movement. Women wanting to get involved should head to thisgirlcan.com.au and join the community on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and follow the #ThisGirlCanVIC.
GippSport were delighted to have 8 Gippy Girls be a part of VicHealth‘s showcase of This Girl Can VIC for The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Sang Rok Judo Club Join Gippy Girls Can Campaign
Sang Rok Judo club are launching a program for woman and girls in partnership with GippSport to bring #GippyGirlsCan to Wonthaggi. Sang Rok Judo #GippyGirlsCan will aim to build self-esteem, confidence and offer a gentle exercise program over a three session format.
The sessions will run on Saturday’s at 3pm commencing from October 27, with the club committing to run this first program at no charge. The program is capped at 15 participants so get in fast.
GippSport Program Coordinator Gene Parini encourages all females over fifteen years of age to get involved. “Sang Rok Judo club are an extremely welcoming club and this program is offering local females the chance to build some skills in a friendly, inclusive environment” said Mr Parini.
The #GippyGirlsCan Campaign is part of the VicHealth Regional Sport Program which is enabling more people in regional Victoria to be physically active in healthier sporting environments. The Program is an investment under the VicHealth Physical Activity Strategy that aims to engage less active Victorians in rural and regional areas in sport. The program has a focus on getting woman and girls engaged in community sport.
Sang Rok Judo Club’s Tahlia Blackman who will be delivering the program is thrilled by this new program. “We are always looking at ways to welcome new members” said Ms Blackman.
“We have offered this approach to individuals already and had some amazing results with some even moving into taking up Judo but that isn’t our focus. Enabling women and girls to get more active and building their confidence is our main aim with this three session program. Offering it to more participants is really exciting” said Ms Blackman.
Tahlia started judo when she was 15, as a way to boost her self-confidence and fitness. She has been competing ever since and is Sang-Rok Wonthaggi’s first female Dan grade (black belt) and women’s coach. Since becoming a mother to 2 girls (Alex is 13, Willow is 5), her focus has shifted to teaching and helping girls have confidence in themselves and believes this program certainly does that.
To sign up or if you‘d like any further information you can contact Gene Parini at GippSport on 5674 6004 or email@example.com

GippSport are looking for other opportunities to increase physical activity across Gippsland so if you have an idea or want to get your club involved in the #gippyGirlsCan campaign please contact GippSport office on 5126 1847 or firstname.lastname@example.org
