You might have noticed something weird on your Strava Overview this week. The Flyby is missing. Why is it missing? And how can you fix this missing flyby? Strava have not made a big song and dance about it, and it seems it only happened because a Twitter user pointed out how easy it would be to stalk women out running alone as, unless they had full privacy settings, you can click on their profile. Quite rightly Strava have responded by making the adjustment. The downside is that is seems I am running in a ghost town.
The good news is that it is really easy to fix a missing Strava flyby, and as a result you will be able to watch at least a few of us on our runs.

How to fix your missing Strava Flyby
Fixing your missing Strava flyby is not difficult at all. Remember why it has been taken away? Simply reverse the privacy setting.
Once you have logged in to Strava you need to click on your profile pic (top right)
On the drop down select settings
On the left hand side chose Privacy Controls
On Flyby change the drop down on “Who can see” from ‘no-one’ to ‘everyone’ then click OK
And that is it. Told you fixing the missing Strava Flyby would be easy.
This might be a good time to check your other security settings and ensure they are updated to your satisfaction.
