How we’re helping keep you safe

We introduced innovative technology to help ensure that your experience feels positive, inclusive, and safe.

Raising the bar on safety

Adaptable technology

We build in-app features to help keep you safe—from GPS tracking that detects if a trip goes unusually off-course, to tools that verify face covers.

Shared accountability

We help ensure that everyone—drivers, riders, couriers, and foodies—all have the opportunity to help keep one another safe when they use Uber.

Safety integrations

In certain markets, we help manage risk through integrations with Concur Locate and International SOS.

Helping to keep you safe at every turn

Concur Locate and International SOS are integrated

We’ve partnered with powerful employee risk management and safety communication solutions that let you quickly check in with your employees.

Every trip is insured

Uber maintains at least $1 million of commercial auto liability insurance on behalf of US drivers while traveling with a rider.

Driver and Courier Screening

Drivers and couriers are screened before they are able to use the Uber platform.

Community Guidelines

Everyone who signs up for an Uber account across all of our apps is expected to treat each other with respect, help keep one another safe, and follow the law.

Providing peace of mind for all

We’re continually working to improve the safety of all the communities we serve, including riders, drivers, delivery people, and businesses.

  • In-app Safety Toolkit

    This is a dedicated place in the app where riders and drivers can easily access key safety information, quickly reach emergency assistance, and learn how to share their location with emergency dispatchers.

  • RideCheck

    Using sensors and GPS, RideCheck helps detect if a trip goes unusually off-course, if there’s an unexpected long stop, or if a possible crash occurred, then checks in to help provide support. Precise features vary by market.

  • Emergency assistance button

    You can use the in-app Emergency Button to call 911 to get help if you need it. The app displays your location and trip details, so you can quickly share them with the 911 dispatcher. In select US cities, this information is automatically shared with emergency services when you call.


Your business is going places. We’re here to help.

*Except in New York City where driving history reviews are conducted by the Taxi and Limousine Commission for drivers accessing the Uber platform.
