How to mute activities in Strava app and not clutter your activity feed

Apple Watch with Strava watch app

With Strava, one can share activities with map details and photos with friends. It is a feature that everyone loves, BUT this can quickly become an annoying experience for many to see constant trivial activities on their feed. 

Strava has updated the app and added a new feature via which you can mute your activities directly from the app.

Muting your activity prevents it from showing up in the Home and Club feeds. It is still available on your profile for others to view. Muted activities still count towards your goals, and it helps to remove clutter from the feeds.

  • Select the activity by tapping on it.Select Strava Activity
  • Tap on the three dots More button on the top right corner of the screen ( content menu.)Select Strava activity menu
  • Choose Edit Activity.Edit Strava Activity
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the screen.
  • Choose Mute Activity.Mute Strava Activity from feeds
  • Tap on Update Activity.

That’s it!

This prevents your activity from showing up in the Home and Club feeds.

You can now mute all small activities from showing up on others’ feeds. This may include your commute, dog walks, and other minor activities that you don’t want to share.

The other way to tackle this is to make all your activities private on Strava and only make the activities public that you want to share with others.
