Over the last few years, Uber has introduced many a step to ensure transparency and the safety of its users. They have now announced Check Your Ride in-app reminders and push notifications to all riders across the region, just as it did in the United States in April.
This new notification feature will remind people to complete three steps to make sure they’re getting into the right car with the right driver every time, by matching the license plate, car make and model, and the driver photo with what’s provided in the app.
In addition to these steps, riders can also ask the driver to confirm their name. Drivers see the rider’s name in their app, and the driver’s name is displayed in the rider’s app. As of this week, users will start to see notifications in the app reminding them to check their ride. This notification will become a permanent safety feature.
