Ride with confidence

The Uber experience was built with safety in mind. Through incident prevention tools and technology that keeps you connected, we’re dedicated to helping you move safely and focus on what matters most.

Drivers must clear several screenings

Every partner driver must undergo a background check, in accordance with the law, run by a specialized company before they can start driving in the platform. With ‘Real-Time Identification’, the app frequently asks drivers to share a selfie with Uber, which we match against their on-file identification to prevent account sharing.

Peace of mind for where you're going

Safety features are designed into the app. So you get home after a night out. So you can tell your loved ones where you are. And so you can call authorities for help, if something unexpected happens.*

Insurance on every trip

Uber protects you on every trip with Chubb's insurance. The coverage includes medical expenses in case of an accident or, in more severe cases, permanent disability coverage, among other coverages that ensure your protection.

Check your ride, every time you ride

Matching the car model and license plate with the information in your app makes for a safer ride. Be certain that you get into the right car by following these steps:

Strengthening our community

Our Community Guidelines were established to keep Uber enjoyable and inclusive for everyone. Any person who doesn’t follow the guidelines can be removed from the platform.
