What Happens When You Delete Your Strava Account?
I want you to take note of the things that you will lose by deleting your Strava account as well as some of your data that won’t be deleted from the platform.
Once you delete your Strava Account, Strava will delete any private segments and routes linked to your account except public segments and routes.
Instead, the company maintains a “perpetual license” on the public routes you’ve created once you’ve deleted your account.
However, you can make sure that these public segments and routes do not remain by first deleting them before proceeding to delete your Strava account.
If you want to delete a segment:
Open your Dashboard > My Segments > Created Segments > click on segment you wish to delete > select Delete.
If you want to delete a route:
Open your Dashboard > My Routes > click the wrench icon under route star icon > select Delete Route.
How To Cancel Your Strava Subscription
Before deleting your Strava account, I recommend canceling your Strava subscription, especially if you’re a premium Strava user.
To achieve this, follow the steps below:
Step 1: Log in to your Strava account on your desktop.
Step 2: Go to Settings, then to My Account.
Step 3: Click on cancel subscription.
However, if you subscribed to Strava through Google Play or the App Store, you have to go to your respective platform’s subscription management pages if you want to cancel the subscription.
