Uber drivers to take selfies for better security
Uber has started a new security feature that will require its drivers to share a selfie to make sure that the driver using the app matches the account on company's records.
Called Real-Time ID Check, the security feature aims to protect drivers and passengers. The driver will take a selfie before going online to make sure that the driver using the app matches the account on file. This prevents cheating and protects drivers’ accounts from being compromised.
