Why did I get an Xert Breakthrough?


Recently re-joined TR, 3rd workout in and today when it synced to Strava it looked like this:


I dont have an active Xert account and as you can see the ride does indicate TR. I checked my old Xert account and the activity is not there.

Probably a better question for Strava support…


LOOOOOOOL. I won’t hold my breath.

Just disable the xert approved app in strava.

It was already disconnected and in disabled mode. Bizarre.

Check whether there is still an approval for Xert to access your strava under: Log In | Strava . If so: remove the connection and/or complain to Xert.

If not, you found a security bug in Strava (xert accessing your account without your authorization) and should complain to Strava. That would be a serious security issue, so my money is on the previous option.

Anyway, Trainerroad has nothing to do with this. This is Xert seeing that you did a ride (by getting the data from strava), analyzing the ride, and updating the title and summary, because apparently that’s how you set up xert in the past.

“Different account synced” - apologies this was the case. :man_facepalming::man_facepalming:
