Designing a safer ride

Safety features are designed into the app, so you can tell your loved ones where you are, and so there’s help if something unexpected happens.* Stay connected and protected when you ride.

Emergency assistance

Get help fast. Call local emergency services right from the app, wherever you are.

Help with incidents around the clock

Our customer service team is specially trained to help with acute security issues.

Share My Trip

Let the people you love know where you are. Choose your Trusted Contacts in the app to share your trip details with them.

Safety Centre

Visit the in-app Safety Centre to learn what we're doing to help keep you safe. Just tap the shield icon the next time you take a trip.

2-way Ratings

Your feedback matters. The two-way rating system maintains an enjoyable Uber experience and helps keep riders and drivers safe. A consistently low-rating can lead to suspension or deactivation.

GPS Tracking

All Uber rides are tracked by GPS from start to finish, so you can follow your ride and see exactly where you’re going.

Phone Number Anonymization

Calls and messages made using the Uber app do not reveal personal phone numbers. Your details are automatically protected.

Driver Profile

Get to know your driver before you step into their car. You can see their rating, how many trips they've completed, how long they’ve been driving, compliments from previous riders, and more.

Drivers must clear several screenings

All potential Uber driver-partners must complete a screening process before they can accept ride requests through the Uber app.

Insurance on every trip

Uber partners with registered insurance providers to help protect you if anything happens.
