Updated February 28, 2018 05:04:45 When you ask an Uber driver for a ride, do you ask for his driver ID?
Not so fast.
In an effort to avoid privacy concerns, Uber announced that the company will begin using facial recognition to scan drivers in its network.
The technology was developed to detect criminal activity, while also helping to ensure that drivers and passengers do not fall into the hands of unscrupulous individuals.
Uber is also developing technology that will help drivers better understand their passengers.

Uber’s new program is only the latest in a series of efforts to create a more secure, secure, and secure digital future.
