Should Your Uber Driver Know Exactly Where You Are? They Could Soon

http://techcrunch.com/2015/05/…..nvenience/

“Where are you? I’m outside. Do you see me? Where should I meet you?” These kinds of frustrating calls with your Uber driver could be a thing of the past. Today Uber updated itsprivacy policy, saying it will now ask to pull people’s exact location while the app is running in the foreground or background.

You’ll have to decide whether that’s helpful or creepy.

Previously, Uber’s drivers could only see where the car was and where you dropped a pickup pin. The rider’s app would send Uber’s databases their location at certain times when they had the app open on their screen. But these intermittent, unpredictable bursts of location data aren’t nearly as fruitful. Now it can pull your current GPS location even after you’ve put away your phone or switched to another app unless you opt out.
