Uber's Community Guidelines

Our Community Guidelines were developed to help make every experience feel safe and respectful. Whether you're a driver or a rider, JUMP user or delivery person, restaurant or Uber Eats customer, everyone is expected to treat everyone else with respect, help keep one another safe, and follow the law.

Not following any of our Community Guidelines may result in the loss of access to your Uber accounts. Here are a few examples:

  • Using Uber apps to commit any crime

  • Sexual assault or sexual misconduct

  • Discriminating against someone based on traits such as age, color, disability, gender identity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected under relevant law

Your personal space and comfort should be respected at all times while you're driving or delivering with Uber. If you encounter a difficult rider or customer, here are a few resources.

You can cancel a trip at any time

If you feel threatened or unsafe, you can end the trip and report the incident to us.

Report the incident

Uber reviews all reports submitted to our customer support team that may violate our Community Guidelines. To report an incident through your app, go to Help, select the relevant trip, and submit a message to our support team.

Contact authorities in the event of an emergency

If you need help while you're on a trip, use the in-app Emergency Button to call authorities. The app displays your location and trip details, so you can quickly share them with emergency services.
