In this fast-moving age where people are constantly on the go, fitness can often take a backseat. This holds especially true for individuals living in big cities, where every destination is so far away that you cannot possibly imagine walking there. People use vehicles to go to the places they want; they often use elevators or lifts instead of stairs and then sit in the office for long hours working. And to make up for the lack of movement and exercise, they go to gyms and fitness centers.
In such a scenario, platforms like Strava really come to the rescue. Strava is a platform designed especially to promote health and fitness among people. It’s also convenient to use because it is a mobile application available for both IOS and Android users.
Using GPS-enabled programming, people can use the platform to track their activities like walking, running, cycling, swimming, and more. They can even see data pertaining to their outdoor activities, like distance, time, speed, elevation, etc.
It is a must-have app for fitness enthusiasts and athletes because it lets you capture and track all your activities and connect you with people passionate about health and fitness. You can also share your own activity progress with them in real time.
When you connect with someone on Strava, it’s natural to wonder whether they have checked your profile on the platform. If you are wondering how you can see who has viewed your profile on the platform, keep reading!
In this blog, we are going to explore whether you can know when someone views your profile on Strava, and if yes, then how?
How to See Who Viewed Your Strava Profile?
If you are an active Strava user, you would certainly try to make the most out of this incredible platform. This might mean creating connections on the platform to meet more people who share the same passion for fitness as you; it could also mean trying to track other athletes’ activities to learn and better your own.
If you want to see who’s been checking your profile on Strava, unfortunately, the platform provides no way for users to know who checked their profiles. You can only view who’s following you on the platform, but that’s it.
A Strava user’s profile contains all their public user data for the other users to see; this will include their gaming history, their wishlist, and any other information they decide to make public on the platform.
You can check this information by going to any user’s profile; they will also not be notified of the same. You can then go ahead and add that user to your friend list if you want.
The only way you can ever get to know if someone viewed your profile on Strava is if they performed an activity on it. It can be anything from sending you a friend request, inviting you to an activity, or commenting on something on your profile.
Strava provides several incredible features on the platform. One such feature is the ability to invite someone to an activity in case they could not record it themselves.
In simpler terms, if you were with a friend doing an outdoor activity, but the friend was unable to record the activity on their Strava application, you can simply invite them to your activity. This will also record the activity in their profile.
Let’s explore how you can invite a friend to your activity on Strava.
How to invite a friend to an activity on Strava?
Let’s learn a simple method using which you can easily invite a friend to your Strava activity in case theirs was not recorded for some reason.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on inviting friends to an activity on Strava:
Step 1: Open the Strava application on your device and log in to your account.
Step 2: Go to your activities and select the one you want to add a friend to.
Step 3: Once you have selected the activity, you will be taken to the activity details page.
From there, you can select Add Friends or Add Others options that will let you invite friends to the particular activity.
Step 4: You will be taken to your followers list once you tap the option.
You can select your friend from there and tap on their name to send them an invitation. In case your friend isn’t on Strava yet, you can still send them an invitation. You can choose other methods to share the invitation link with them, such as emails, social media platforms, and other messaging apps.
Step 5: Once you have sent the invitation, your friend will receive an invitation link or a message.
They can then tap on the link or follow the instructions in the invitation message to join your activity.
And that’s it! A simple and easy way to invite friends to any of your activities on Strava.
To wrap it up
That brings us to the end of today’s blog. Let’s quickly go through everything we have learned so far today. We began our discussion by exploring the Strava app and what it’s all about.
We then determined whether or not users have a way of knowing when someone visits their profiles on Strava, the answer to which, unfortunately, is No.
Users cannot know when someone visits their profiles on Strava; they will only get to know about it if someone does any activity on their profile. The activity may include sending a friend request to the user, commenting on any of their activities, and so on.
We then explored how one can add a friend to an activity on Strava in case their friend fails to record the activity on their own application. We learned how to invite a friend to an activity using a step-by-step guide.
