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.

Helping to protect you on the road

While driving with us, you're covered by insurance that's maintained by Uber.

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.

Peace of mind, wherever you go

Safety is designed into the experience. So you feel comfortable driving at night. So you can tell loved ones where you’re going. And so you know you have someone to turn to if anything happens.¹

Emergency assistance button

You can use the in-app emergency button to call authorities to get help if you need it. The app displays your location and trip details, so you can quickly share them with emergency services.

24/7 incident support

Uber customer associates trained in incident response are available around the clock.

Share Trip

Friends and family can follow your route and will know as soon as you arrive.

2-way ratings

Your feedback matters. Low-rated trips are logged, and users may be removed to protect the Uber community.

Phone anonymization

If you need to contact your rider through the app, your phone number may stay private.

GPS tracking

All Uber rides are tracked from start to finish, so there’s a record of your trip if something happens.

You’re covered on every trip with a rider

Each trip you take with us is insured to protect you, your rider, and your car.*

Liability for injury or damage to third parties for at least $1 million for a covered claim.

Uninsured or underinsured motorists and hit-and-run accidents for at least $1 million for a covered claim.

Your car, whether an accident was your fault or not, is covered up to the cash value of your vehicle after a $1,000 deductible.

Coverage you can count on

Uber partners with leading insurance providers like Allstate, Farmers®, James River, and Progressive to help protect you if anything happens.

An option to help protect you and your family

Driver Injury Protection is an optional insurance program offered through our partner Aon.** For less than 4 cents per mile, this supplemental insurance helps to minimize the financial impact a covered accident can have on you and your family.

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 and to take healthy breaks, so you’re alert behind the wheel.

Safety tips

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.
