    Strava and Criminal Charges

    An interesting read. Could it be a problem? Yes, under the right circumstances....

    After reading that, I wonder how much more or less accurate Strava is when using a Garmin vs a phone or other GPS devices

    There has been a lot of attention to internet based alibis in LE, as you might expect. I can think of a couple of ways I would go after a Strava based alibi right off the top of my head.

    I wonder if going into someone's Strava account constitutes illegal search and seizure?

    Probably not....the EULA you didn't read when you signed up for Strava (like that of RBR), probably gives the host carte blanche to do whatever they want with your data with or without your consent for any purposes they want.


    Now...one could claim EULAs have no right to do that, and such practices are null and void since no one reads those TOS or EULA statements other than the people drafting them. Which honestly can and should be done, because of the overreach of the damn things....but that would be an uphill battle legally since everyone does it.
