Other than providing riders with reliable rides, safety is one thing that Uber values the most .

Uber Safety Toolkit helps you and your loved ones to be much safer 24 / 7.

Have you ever worried about your family coming home late, or travel around a new city?

Your safety is one of the most important things that Uber cares about. Uber app added three new features to make you feel even safer riding with us.

1.【Safety Center】
From the Safety Toolkit, riders can learn more about safety at Uber in one central location in the app – from driver background checks, insurance protections, to details on how to contact our 24/7 support.
