At Uber, we’re always looking for ways to strengthen security on the app. We’re constantly developing and testing new solutions to enhance security for both drivers and riders using technology in ways not possible before. With that, we’re proud to announce that Real-Time ID Check, our latest security feature which uses Microsoft Cognitive Services to protect both riders and drivers, is now live in Singapore!
As we commemorate the International Week of the Deaf this year, we can’t think of a better time to introduce our app updates for deaf and hard-of-hearing partners! In a world where people with disabilities face more challenges in a world designed for the able-bodied, these features make it easier for deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals to earn a flexible income on their own terms.
Thank you, Uber Singapore riders and driver-partners, for going the extra mile for a good cause! You have helped raise S$10,000 for the President’s Challenge, which will go towards supporting various worthy causes in Singapore from eldercare, disability, rehabilitation, healthcare to uplifting the pioneer generation.
We’re excited to honour these incredible driver-partners with our #6Star Award program and we want you to nominate that 6-star driver you’ve met on your recent ride. Tell us why you feel it was such a memorable ride for you. If your story is selected, you’ll be awarded with $300 credits. Plus, your nominated driver will receive $800 for providing great service. It pays to spread good vibes!
