Uber has introduced a new way to verify your trips, in addition to providing health and safety reminders on each trip you take. This a new innovative security feature that the company has come up with to improve the safety of their customers.
Since your safety matters alot, the ride-hailing company has created a PIN Verification feature to help you verify that you’re entering the right car and with the right driver. The most interesting part of it is that it is an opt-in feature for added peace of mind on every trip you take.
How to use Uber PIN
- Update your Uber app to the latest version.
- Open the app, go to Settings and tap Verify your trips.
- Tap to toggle on Use PIN to verify trips and then select Every trip or Only at night.
- Tap Done
After opting in this feature, a user will always get a 4-Digit PIN on every trip you order. Before entering the car tell the Driver your PIN, if they are the driver the app matched the user with, they’ll be able to start the trip after they enter your PIN into their app.
Users can also verify that they’re getting into the right car by making sure that the driver matches their profile photo and that the number plate and car make and model match what’s shown in their app.
