The Apple Watch is a great way to stay connected and track your fitness goals. But did you know that you can also control who can see your activity data? This is a great way to keep your information safe, while still allowing friends and family to cheer you on.

To start, open the Fitness app on your iPhone. Tap the Sharing tab, then tap the friend that you want to hide your activity from. Tap Hide my Activity. This will prevent them from seeing any new data that you add, but they will still be able to see what they’ve previously seen before.

These are just some of the ways you can control who sees your activity data in the Apple Watch ecosystem. Whether it’s for security or privacy reasons, it’s important to have control over who has access to this information so that it remains secure and private.
