I have per activity privacy set for some months now and it correctly sets all my new activities to private. I also wanted to change my older activities, which were public, to private. I did not want to do this manually, which would take forever, so I was playing around with the privacy settings in order to change all my past activities to private. I had seen a message on this forum that changing to public sets them all public, so I figured setting it to “Just Me” would turn them all private. Afterwards I could switch back to per activity to still appear in leaderboards and what have you. This seemed to have worked? Randomly sampling some activities from the past shows them set as “Just Me”. However, I noticed some issues:
- My total street count seems to have dropped by ~2000 streets (I vaguely recall it being in the 3000s, now it is down to 1200). This does not make sense because manually adding up some of my cities puts me past the 2000s easily.
- While I was set to “Just Me”, I could still access my lifemap from a private browsing session and hovering over the lifemap showed the individual activity dates for each lifemap “strand”. I don’t think I want that to happen in the Just Me setting or the per activity setting.

Happy to clarify/retry anything.
