Choose more safety. Choose Uber.
We want you to move freely, make the most of your time, and be connected to the people and places that matter most to you. That’s why we are committed to safety, from the creation of new standards to the development of technology with the aim of reducing incidents.
Building safer journeys for everyone
Count on 24/7 support to help with any questions or safety concerns. Share your trip with loved ones. Our focus is on your safety, so you can go where the opportunity is.
Millions of rides are requested every day. Every rider has access to safety features built into the app. And every ride has a support team if you need them.
Using sensors and GPS data, RideCheck can help detect if a trip has an unexpected long stop. If so, we'll check on you and offer tools to get help.
Button to call the local authorities
Easily call local authorities in case of emergencies. The app displays your location and trip details, so you can quickly share them with authorities. Additionally, Uber will receive an alert to follow up on the incident.
Verify Your Ride
Taking our Check Your Ride guidelines a step further, we’ve introduced Verify Your Ride to give you an extra layer of security. Turn this feature on to receive a unique PIN for every ride, then share that PIN with your driver to help ensure that you’re in the right vehicle.
To help all drivers meet safety standards, they must undergo a multi-step safety screening both before they take their first trip and as they continue to drive with Uber.
We implement verification tools for users through their Facebook account when they choose cash as their payment method. If their payment method is electronic (credit, debit, or PayPal), we verify their relevant information.
Helping to keep each other safe during COVID-19
We’re actively monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and are continually working to help keep those who rely on our platform healthy and safe.
Our new Door-to-Door Safety Standard
We want you to feel safe riding with Uber as our communities start to move again. That’s why we’re introducing our new Door-to-Door Safety Standard. Powered by Uber’s innovative technology, encouraging shared responsibility, and including guidance from health experts, these new measures are designed to help protect the health and safety of everyone who uses our platform.
In this together
All riders and drivers must wear a face cover or mask when using Uber.
Face Cover Check
We ask drivers to take a photo of themselves before they can begin driving, and our technology helps verify that they are wearing a face cover.
Health and safety supplies for drivers
We are working to provide drivers and delivery people 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.
