I am a huge Uber fan! I use them pretty much exclusively when I travel. It looks like Uber is taking safety seriously and have add what look to me like 2 very user-friendly additions to the app to help keep riders feeling safe.

Uber Cool New Safety Features With App

We’re committed to helping keep you safe when you ride with Uber. From new app features to improving the screening process for drivers, we’re putting safety at the heart of everything we do.

Uber Cool New Safety Features With App

1.) you can now share your location with “trusted contacts” in the app.

2.) you can call 911 right from your app, where you can also see exactly where you are and in some cities, the app will even share it with the 911 dispatcher.

I love Uber, it is super convenient! If you still haven’t tried Uber yet, you can still get a credit towards your first ride with my referral link, here or your credit can be applied to your UberEats order instead!
