Uber, FTC agree to new settlement terms over data breach

Uber is looking to be virtually a one-stop transportation shopping app, saying on Wednesday it will add new services, including car-sharing and train tickets.

The FTC said Uber in November 2016 learned that intruders had again accessed consumer data the company stored on its third-party cloud provider's servers but did not disclose the incident for a year.

Trusted contacts: Riders will be able to designate up to five friends and family members as trusted contacts, and be prompted to share trip details with them during every ride. That's why we want to provide alternatives to personal auto ownership by bringing together multiple modes of transportation right in our app. And I think that Silicon Valley is understanding that with building these platforms comes responsibility to make sure that those platforms are being used for good, and the old days are over and you have to take this responsibility seriously and you've got to invest behind it.

When the 911 button is pressed, riders will immediately get their location to relay to dispatchers, helping riders traveling in unfamiliar areas. While no background check is flawless, our process is thorough, fair, and relevant to the work at hand. Some Uber drivers contest that classification, though, and argue that Uber's algorithm exerts far too much control over their lives to be viewed otherwise. Going forward, we'll proactively rerun criminal and motor vehicle checks each year, regardless of whether there is a legal obligation to do so'.

Uber will conduct its annual background checks through a company called Checkr starting in the next few weeks. We hope the same service to roll out in more regions within the country once the testing mode is done successfully by the testers in Denver. This new features are here to ensure the safety of the passengers who ride through Uber's cab.

The company is also utilizing a new system aimed at notifying the company when drivers in the system are involved in a criminal offense.

Uber's Safety Advisory Board was established in 2015 to bring new approaches, feedback, and expertise to our safety processes and technology. Johnson is a former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security.
