I just recently received an email describing how thieving are locating and stealing expensive bicycles by tracking the start and end points bicycle rides on Garmin Connect.
I actually use Strava.com, so I did a quick vulnerability check.
What I found has me giving huge kudos to the Strava gang, because it’s easy to protect your start and end points.
Just do this on your Strava account:
- Go to “settings”
- Then “privacy”
- Then enter your home or work address and Strava will anonymize your start and end points out to a maximum of one mile. [And you can enter multiple locations.]
Way to go Strava!
