Shock: Uber Can Track Your Location with their App once Installed

UberThe popular Uber App for quick cab booking across multiple countries and cities has been indispensable for users looking to save on communing time by giving them a quick access to a cab pickup. However, it has been learnt that since the App works on tracking your geographic location to update you on a cab pickup, it would also be storing and transmitting your location and using that for targeted advertizing, though the App would ask for permission for acting on these details.

This latest shocker would be seen as a violation of an individual’s privacy, and has come straight from the revised terms and conditions on the Uber website, which would be taking into effect from July 15’ onwards. So next time you choose Uber, remember to notice that it knew that you were there already.
