Uber and FTC Reach Agreement on Expanded Settlement for 2016 Data Breach

This gives users greater and more convenient access to tickets for public transit services.

After years of resisting major changes pushed by riders and government regulators, Uber announced upgrades this week it said are aimed at keeping its US ride-hail customers safe.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Hall said the new features won't change how frequently he uses Uber but he supports the change. Those are both new features as well, allowing riders to share their ride information with loved ones and the police in the event of an emergency.

Uber Technologies will connect USA riders directly to emergency number 911 from this summer, the latest in a package of measures created to improve the global ride hailing company's popular image. "People are used to you go on the metro, it's a shared ride, you're going to be with a bunch of other people". Last year's FTC charges stemmed, in part, from Uber ending use of that system less than a year after it was put in place. We're teaming up with RapidSOS to pilot 911 integration with local emergency authorities, starting in Denver. It now offers detailed information on Boston, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, plus cities in other countries. But we've heard feedback from the cities we operate in that access to some of our aggregated data could help inform transport policy and future investments.

Shohei Ohtani loses flawless game in seventh inning against Athletics
But here we are after his first four games-five when you count his 6-inning debut on the mound-and he's out here turning heads. Ohtani struck out the side again in the fifth inning, and he fanned every Oakland batter except Jonathan Lucroy at least once.

In October 2016, hackers stole names, email addresses, and phone numbers of 57 million Uber riders around the world, along with data on more than 7 million drivers, which included over 600,000 drivers' license records. If there is no internet connectivity, if you ever feel you're in an emergency situation, you should call 100 immediately.

Improved driver-screening methods are also part of Uber's safety overhaul. It still does not intend to do Federal Bureau of Investigation fingerprint background checks, saying its check of court records and other databases is robust, fair and "stacks up well against the alternatives".

Uber will start conducting yearly background checks on drivers. "[We'll] be among the first to invest in technology that rapidly identifies new offenses.to ensure the driver is still eligible to use Uber". "Uber paved the way for a new paradigm in urban mobility, and we're tremendously excited to power seamless connectivity between Uber's options and public transit, reducing the number of cars on the road and enabling more on-demand transportation". Uber hopes to provide more safety to the passengers and for that reason, they are taking every possible step.
