Drive with confidence
You deserve to be able to go wherever the opportunity is. Get there with support on the road and technology that helps protect you and those around you.
Masks are no longer required
As of April 19, 2022, riders and drivers are not required to wear masks when using Uber. However, the CDC still recommends wearing a mask if you have certain personal risk factors and/or high transmission levels in your area.
Remember: many people still feel safer wearing a mask because of personal or family health situations, so please be respectful of their preferences. And if you ever feel uncomfortable, you can always cancel the trip.
Updating our no-front-seat policy
Riders are no longer required to sit in the back seat. However, to give you more space, we’re still asking that riders only use the front seat if it’s required because of the size of their group.
Thank you for helping take care of one another
We know the pandemic has been difficult. But you’ve continued to go the extra mile to help protect our communities—whether it’s wearing a mask, making space for one another, or helping people get the food they need. Thank you for that.
It’s still important to take safety precautions while driving and delivering. So make sure to roll down the windows for extra airflow, sanitize your hands before and after trips or deliveries, and always cover your cough or sneeze.

New measures to help keep you safe and healthy.
In this together
To prioritize your health, all riders are required to wear a face cover or mask.
Face Cover Check
Before you go online, we ask you to take a photo of yourself, and our technology helps verify that you are wearing a face cover or a mask.
Health and safety supplies
We are working to provide you with health and safety supplies like face covers, disinfectants, and gloves to deliver food.
We are working with the World Health Organization (WHO) to share safety tips and resources.
Ride Safety Feedback
You’ll now be able to leave feedback on health issues, such as a rider not wearing a face cover or a mask. This helps us improve and holds everyone accountable.
Designing a safer experience
Features to help keep you safe
The app is built with technology to help you stay connected to your loved ones, our team, and emergency authorities, so you can go even further.
Help if you need it
Specially trained incident response teams are available anytime right from the app.
An inclusive community
Through our joint efforts with cities and safety experts and by working together, we’re helping to create safe journeys for everyone.
Tips for smooth, safe pickups
Your safety is our top priority. That’s why we’re asking you and your riders to double-check all details before they step in, to ensure extra peace of mind right from the start.
Before the trip begins, riders are advised to check your car license plate number, make and model, as well as your driver photo and name.
You can ask riders to confirm your name too. You could ask, “Hi, who is your driver?” or “Can you please confirm my name? It should be displayed on your app.”
Safer roads for everyone, thanks to you
You play a key role in helping to make cities safer and roads friendlier to move around in.
Staying focused while driving
The app reminds you that you’re driving within the posted speed limit, so you’re alert behind the wheel.
From finding a safe place to pick up riders to reminding them to buckle up, you can make a big difference in your safety and that of the people around you.
