In the past few years, many passenger safety accidents have occurred in the ridesharing company's service, which undoubtedly challenges customer confidence.

Uber promised to work on enhancing safety for both riders and drivers after some unpleasantness with the London authorities. Therefore, the functions including trusted contact, in-app emergency button, and in-app security center are added.
Recently, they are launching a new security feature to detect the movement of Uber vehicles through smartphone sensors. If the algorithm of the system determines that a car is parking unexpectedly or suddenly in the course of driving, or is taking a particularly strange route, it will alert the driver and rider to check that everything is normal.
If you tap the alarm, you will see a series of response options, including "I'm fine, I parked intentionally", "911 assistance", "dial Uber safety hotline" and "report car accidents". Uber's security team may also follow up on a phone call to seek further confirmation of what is happening.
Over the past year, Uber has tested it in Los Angeles, Dallas and several other cities in the United States. Maybe it won't be long before this function will be extended to your city.
