Uber CEO responds to proposed ridesharing tax hike in DC

Uber has announced a new service similar to Airbnb, but for vehicles. The service is widely available all over the world in most of the countries.

Uber introduced several new safety features for its app, to give people a sense of security on their rides. The ride's information and the entire navigation will be shared with those selected contacts. Night time sharing will be an option.

Uber Technologies Inc will connect USA riders directly to emergency number 911 from this summer, the latest in a package of measures created to improve the global ride hailing company's popular image.

Riders will see a shield that they can touch, sending the app to another screen with safety tips, instructions on how to easily share ride information with others, and a button to call 911. We're teaming up with RapidSOS to pilot 911 integration with local emergency authorities, starting in Denver. Prefer to share your trip during evening rides only?

Uber's new 911 Assistance service is now under testing mode and is being used in Denver. "And while there's been a lot of progress, we're committed to doing more". Uber says can do more to ensure drivers continue to meet our standards on an ongoing basis, long after they take their first trip.

"After misleading consumers about its privacy and security practices, Uber compounded its misconduct by failing to inform the Commission that it suffered another data breach in 2016 while the Commission was investigating the company's strikingly similar 2014 breach", said Acting FTC Chairman Maureen K. Ohlhausen. The data will rerun every year and the drivers have to go through various testings before riding an Uber drive.

The ride-hailing company also said it's improving how it screens drivers; it'll conduct annual background checks and receive automatic notifications when a driver commits a criminal offense, like drunken driving.

In addition to compelling Uber to disclose certain future incidents involving consumer data, the new provisions in the revised proposed order include requirements for Uber to submit to the Commission all the reports from the required third-party audits of Uber's privacy program rather than only the initial such report.

A data breach in 2016 exposed the names, phone numbers and email addresses of more than 20 million people who use Uber Technologies Inc.'s service in the US, authorities said on Thursday, as they chastised the ride-hailing company for not revealing the lapse earlier. They are even spending millions of dollars for the same.
