Uber Introduces Panic Button In App

Uber is introducing two new safety features for riders in India after concerns about the passengers safety after one woman claimed she was raped by a driver. 


Uber, based in San Francisco says it will launch a 'panic button' in the app allowing riders to notify police in case of an emergency, as well as a 'safety net' feature that will allow users to share trip details and their location with emergency contacts (up to 5).


They have also said they are setting up a local team that will respond to reports by riders and will get a notification when the panic button is pressed.
