Uber today announced some new features to improve passenger safety. Every day, millions of people rely on Uber to travel from one place to another so that many security features for them will be well received. Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi has revealed a preview of improvements that will begin in the United States this summer in a post on the company’s official blog today.
The Uber application is updated with confidence in mind and all security features are placed in a central location so that they can be accessed directly from the base screen during a trip. Existing features such as Share My Trip will be easier to find as well.
Riders or drivers will soon receive an Application Security Center, which will provide security information such as advice in partnership with law enforcement, driver review processes, community guidelines and insurance protection.
