  1. You’ll find a new menu item listed on the left hand side, called “My API app”. We are interested in the “Your Access Token” field, so press the “show” button to display your access token.
  2. Your Strava Access code should be revealed, however depending on your browser, the ‘Show” button may not work. In which case, using your mouse, right click on the Strava “My API app” page and display the page source.
  3. Within the page source, find the string “Your Access Token”. You’ll find your access token in the “data-secret” span tag.
