Link: Uber’s safety tools can be really useful, provided you enable them — here’s how

Some of these tools I knew about already, and you probably have heard about them, too, like ShareMyTrip, which lets you send live location and ride details with people you trust. But did you know you could also record your rides? The recording is encrypted, and you can’t listen to it — nor can your driver — but Uber can and will if you submit a safety report. What’s even cooler is that you can customize these features according to time and location. For example, you can schedule PIN verification or the audio recording feature to turn on for all rides after 9PM and / or whenever you’re within 50 meters of bars. #
