Explanation & Answer
Uber Security Concerns
Uber state as a new business of peer to peer ridesharing, taxi cab has been familiar and
popularize in the world today. It provides a chance to build up relationships (between clients and
the driver), a better driving environment, and a convenient ride-hailing conditions. I would say
Uber could never be as safety as the public transportation. Uber's privacy and the private space it
creates for the clients make the ride more dangerous. The qualification of the driver is hard to
regulate and rarely if never does the driver’s social profile and reputation taken into
consideration. As much as many may think that Uber has revolutionized transport industry
among other benefits such resource utilization, source of income and ready availability, I do

public transport sector.
To begin, the background check during driver hiring process is apparently not as strict as it is
stated in the regulations of the company. Usually, those to be hired to drive civilians around need
to pass a background check to ensure that they are free from criminal records, driving
malpractices and health problems that may put the lives of the passengers in danger, or even
passengers’ property. However that is not always the case. It is as if almost anyone with a car has

revealed that some drivers indeed had the positive record of these background checks. For

conviction among other criminal records within a period not long before their hiring. This may
serve as a security loophole where ‘bad guys’ can gain their way into Uber industry and
consequently harm civilians.
We should not always dwell on the security of the Uber drivers. These people are also humans
and can be harmed in the similar ways that passengers can be harmed. Even though not
thoroughly done, at least drivers undergo background check for criminal record. On the other
hand, the passengers only need an app and a few identification information which do not bring
out their criminal past, medical records or even psychiatri...
