Photos in Maps

Mt. Kenya

There should be an option when viewing the map to not have to see other peoples pictures and the "see this location" option.

Let us turn that feature off through filters.

Hi @samschilling 

Thanks for the feedback on this new feature. We don't accept feature requests to roll back feature launches, but your feedback is valuable, and I've moved your post to our Feature Chat Board and tagged it as feedback. 

To to be sure you're aware, it is possible to control whether you’d like to make your photos available to the community (subject to your privacy controls—see below) by following these steps on the Strava mobile app. Any changes to this setting will be applied to all photos you’ve previously uploaded to Strava and all photos you upload moving forward.

    • Open your Settings by tapping on the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner of the You tab and selecting Privacy Controls.
    • Tap Public Photos on Routes.
    • Choose whether or not to allow Strava to use photos on routes

Full details are here

Thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts.
