There are situations while taking the requests, drivers need to go for long and the time taking rides which puts a question on their safety. Now drivers will be able to share their location along with the ride detail with the concerned ones via the ‘Share My Trip’ which is also compatible with social accounts like WhatsApp. The ride-hailing giant is initially enrolling the feature in 600 cities where Uber is currently operating.

“While connecting to the drivers globally the most prominent concerned that we came to know that drivers wants to let their family and friends know their position easily and quickly” said Kate Parker, Uber’s head of trust and safety initiatives. She further added, “ drivers just want to share with their loved ones where they were, so they didn't get any calls from them unless it's an emergency”.

In order to use the feature drivers just need to tap on the sharing option and it will pull out an address book. The mentioned family members and friends will be alerted and can track the driver's progress along with riding details.

In addition to this Uber also enrolled one more feature on Monday which is a user ID protocol. Under this enhancement, riders need to verify their identities via Facebook accounts in the regions where rides are paid by cash instead of phone-based credit cards to ensure the driver's safety and avoid fraudulent.

Uber is constantly working to revive its relation with 2 million peoples who drive the company’s service across the 800 plus cities. After finding out that drivers from some the areas are ditching the company’s system to earn profit Uber is working hard to retain their faith in the company. As a part of the company’s campaign “ 180 days of change” Uber is working hard to change the things around with the drivers also.
