Updates to our 3rd Party API Progress (ZwiftPower, CVR, ZwiftGPS)

(Vincent W.) #1

Hey Zwifters! Here’s an update to our 3rd Party API progress, presented by our very own Wes Salmon, Senior Product Manager at Zwift!

"Happy Monday Zwifters. I have some news on progress we have made to help re-enable some of the Zwift community built tools and services. Today we enabled a data sharing opt-in settings via your Zwift profile to allow you to grant data access to ZwiftPower.com, CVR and ZwiftGPS.

By opting into data sharing, you will be sharing your performance, profile, event data, gender, country, weight, height, name, and heart-rate with these services. This data may appear publicly for others to see and evaluate on the services you choose to share data with.

Important Note: These opt-in options are the first step to bringing these services back online. There is additional work ongoing which will take a little more time before these services are fully functional again.

Each of these timelines may be different so please be patient as each of these groups work to enable their services within our new data sharing framework.

The new opt-in UI is available at https://my.zwift.com/ via the Edit Profile --> Connections menu.

Ride On! :biking_man:‍♂:biking_woman::biking_man:‍♂:biking_woman::dash::dash:"

Thanks for the update. 


Will you add other 3rd party apps to opt in as well? I am thinking particularly of ZwiftHacks.com , their mapping and chat functions is a valuable add on to the Zwift experience, in fact Zwift feel incomplete without it.

No info on that right now Gerrie, but we’ll keep you updated as more info rolls out!

About ZwiftPower, CVR, ZwiftGPS & the GDPR …

I noticed (was expected) that just a percentage of Zfifters opted in. Now results in ZwiftPower for an event only list data for accounts that opted in, but I think we’ve a workaround, at least a partial one.

Remember that anonymous data are not subject to GDPR.

What about to list an anonymous place holder, with no personal data shown?
At least If I ranked 25 over 250 I know that, not I’m 12 th over 50 …

TyL, Paolo.
