Camera access?

Why do they have access to our cameras other than having to take a selfie when they feel like keeping tabs on you? Are they watching the drivers? Also, I was talking to a support person while driving my son to school, they said “I see you are on a live trip now...” I said “no, but why would you say that?” A bunch of fumbling excuses and then hangs up.... clearly we can be tracked even when not working....?????

      Unfortunately, since Uber is a private organization they probably have the right to do this. I wonder if the fact that we are contractors changes that though. Companies can definitely spy on employees. Happens all the time even in white collar jobs. Maybe not contractors? don't know.

    This is exactly the kind of thing a union would regulate...

    Its running in the background. I just posted about it on your other thread. I just found this out recently. There is a way to turn it off on an Android. Sure you can on IPhone also.

    Uber knows everything the driver and the passengers are doing during the trip through the GPS signal and gyroscopes smart phones have. Every time I drive over a certain speed limit, Uber app sends me a warning.
