A little less than two years ago, I ran a 40k over the Swiss border and down into the French mountain town of Chamonix. It was not easy. In preparing for the race, one of the tools I used was Strava, an app that can help runners, cyclists, or rowers track their progress in their preferred sport, set goals and plan routes.
After the alpine adventure, I realised I had completely stopped using the platform, though, so I got rid of it. While Strava is inarguably useful for many a sportsperson, if you don’t use it, get rid of it because you don’t want to compromise your personal info, not to mention your whereabouts and movement.
It’s easy to delete your Strava account. Here’s how.
