Our commitment to safety

You deserve to be able to move safely. To look forward to the opportunities ahead. To be connected to people and places that matter most. Which is why we’re focused on developing technology and setting new standards with the goal of keeping you safer.

Building safer journeys for everyone

Driver safety

Uber has machine learning technology that blocks trips considered potentially dangerous and checks the National ID for all users that pay trips in cash. Our focus is on your safety, so you can go where the opportunity is.

Rider safety

Millions of rides are requested every day on our platform: all of them are tracked by GPS and insured in case of a covered accident. Every partner driver goes through a background check, in accordance with the law, run by a specialized company.

The future of safety

More than 200 Uber employees, from researchers and scientists to designers and engineers, are focused on building technology that puts safety at the heart of your experience. Uber will also have its first Technology Development Center focused on Safety in Brazil, with more than 150 professionals and an investment of 250 million reais over the next 5 years.

Partnering to make a difference

Our commitment to safety goes beyond your ride. We have teamed up with leading experts—from public safety officials to anti-violence organizations—to help make roads and cities safer for all.
