The health and safety of the Uber community is always our priority. We are actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID‐19) situation and are taking steps to help keep those that rely on our platform safe. Click here for more information.
We recognize that every time you open your Uber app, you're putting your trust in our technology—to not only connect you with a driver, but to also give you resources in case of emergency. That trust is what drives us to continuously raise the bar, building new safety features, setting guidelines for respectful and positive experiences, and more.
Before anyone can drive with Uber, they must undergo a multi-step safety screening that includes driving and impaired driving violations, and a criminal record check. In addition, drivers are rescreened every year.
In an emergency, speed and accuracy are critical. If you call 911 from the Uber app, the app displays your live location and trip details, so you can share them with the emergency dispatcher.
Intact protects riders and drivers on the Uber app. Uber maintains commercial auto insurance on behalf of drivers and delivery people in case of a covered accident.
Uber support is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and is handled by a team of trained safety agents. If you’re in immediate danger, you should always contact authorities first.
We use technology to help keep your phone number private, so neither drivers nor riders will see each other’s numbers when communicating through the Uber app. Once a trip is completed, the app also protects rider information by concealing specific pickup and dropoff addresses in a driver’s trip history.
