It’s clear that Uber is the best way to get around. The company has been a fantastic hit since it was created and it’s easy to use. It’s cheap, affordable and incredibly easy to hail a cab. No matter how close or far you’re going, Uber is perfect for you. But what happens if you’re driving and you get someone else who isn’t your Uber driver? What happens if someone else takes their place and claims to be them? Now you’ll know, Uber says, with “driver selfies.”
Drivers will be required to take occasional selfies so that way Uber knows that they are actually the ones who started driving the car, and the ones who Uber hired.
This is a great way for Uber to make sure that it actually sends out who it says it is sending. Many people would be uncomfortable if they got message that one person was coming but someone else showed up. It’d be like your grandma saying she was coming for dinner but finding out it was actually your mother upon arrival. Awkward at best, a liability at worst. This is why Uber has decided it is important to address this issue as quickly as possible, and they’ve decided to address the issue by doing “selfie checks.”
The selfie check has been in place in some places for a few months now, but it is rolling out to all of the states in the USA soon. That means that the person you see when you get your ride call is actually the person who you will be riding with, making the process smoother for everyone. It’s just another way that Uber is trying to get ahead in the competition of cars.
