Did you know that if you are riding Uber in India, there is a new security feature for you? Disguised phone numbers by Uber! Uber India is excited to announce their latest safety innovation for drivers and riders in India – Disguised Phone Numbers. Uber India is deploying their disguised phone number technology in India. This ensures that all calls between riders and driver-partners are connected using anonymous phone numbers — so both sides can communicate with each other to coordinate a pick-up without revealing their personal phone numbers. As always safety is Uber India’s number one priority. And that’s why Uber has been investing in new technology so that they can help ensure people’s safety before, during and after the ride.
