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 partner, restaurant partner or customer, everyone is expected to treat everyone else with respect, help keep one another safe, and follow the law.
In this video, you’ll learn about:
- Some of our standards

Community Guidelines spotlight
Not following any of our Community Guidelines may result in the loss of access to your Uber accounts. Here are a few examples:
Using the 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 us. If you encounter a difficult rider or customer, here are a few recommendations.
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 investigates 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.
Questions from drivers and delivery partners
- How does Uber enforce the Community Guidelines?
Uber receives feedback through a variety of channels, reviews reports submitted to our customer support team that may violate our Community Guidelines, and may investigate through a specialized team. We may put a hold on your account until our review is complete. Not following any one of our Community Guidelines may result in the loss of access to your Uber accounts. This may include certain actions you may take outside of the apps, if we determine that those actions threaten the safety of the Uber community or cause harm to Uber’s brand, reputation, or business.
- What are some actions that may result in losing access to any Uber app?
Not following any of our Community Guidelines may result in the loss of access to your Uber accounts. Here are some examples of Community Guidelines violations:
Physical contact. Hitting, hurting, or otherwise intending to hurt anyone.
Threatening and rude behavior. Using language or gestures that could be disrespectful, threatening, or inappropriate.
Breaking laws. Violating any applicable law, including airport rules and regulations when at the airport, and the rules of the road, including speed and traffic laws, at any time when using the Uber apps. All drivers and delivery partners using a vehicle are required by law to maintain a valid driver’s license, insurance, and vehicle registration.
Discrimination. 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.
Drugs and alcohol. Driving or biking while intoxicated (it’s against the law).
Fraud. Deception can weaken trust and also be dangerous. Examples of fraud include deliberately increasing the time or distance of a trip or delivery for fraudulent purposes; accepting trip, order, or delivery requests without the intention to complete them, including provoking riders to cancel for fraudulent purposes; creating dummy accounts for fraudulent purposes; claiming fraudulent fees or charges, like false cleaning fees; intentionally requesting, accepting, or completing fraudulent or falsified trips or deliveries; claiming to complete a delivery without ever picking up the delivery item; picking up a delivery item but retaining all or a portion of the item, and not delivering the entire order; abusing promotions and/or not using them for their intended purpose; disputing charges for fraudulent or illegitimate reasons; or creating improper duplicate accounts.
Account sharing. To use any Uber app, you need to register and maintain an active account. Don’t let another person use your account, and never share your personal user name and password with anyone else.
Providing inaccurate vehicle information. For an easy pickup or delivery, the Uber apps give riders and customers identifying information about drivers and delivery partners and their vehicles, including their license plate number, vehicle make and model, profile picture, and name. Inaccurate or outdated information creates confusion among riders and customers and can diminish their experience using the Uber apps.
Sex while using the Uber apps. Uber has a no-sex rule. Sexual contact is prohibited while using the Uber apps, including during a trip or on a delivery, regardless of whether you know the person or they give you their consent.
Sexual assault and misconduct. Uber prohibits sexual assault and sexual misconduct of any kind. Sexual assault and misconduct refers to sexual contact or behavior without explicit consent of the other person.
Unwanted contact with riders after a trip or delivery. Contact should end when the trip or delivery is complete, unless it’s to return a lost item. For example, texting, calling, visiting, or trying to visit someone in person after completing a trip or delivery is not allowed.
- Do Uber’s Community Guidelines apply to my riders and customers, too?
Yes. Uber's Community Guidelines apply to everyone who uses any of our apps, including drivers, riders, delivery partners, Uber Eats customers, restaurants, and users.
