Looks like a pretty cool feature to let my kids start using Uber on my same account. Does anyone have experience with this? I believe it is intended for letting kids take Uber. Sounds super convenient. are there any gotchas.
Has anyone used Uber's Family Profiles? Sounds like my children can take Ubers now?
The Guru Take
No, minors still cannot utilize Uber's service. Family Profiles is basically for a family to share a single payment method, say one credit card. This enables family members without their own credit cards to still utilize Uber's services.
Each person still needs to download the app, create an account, and agree to Uber's full terms of service. Here's quote from Uber regarding Family Profiles:
"Each rider added to your Family Profile must meet Uber's terms of service. To obtain an account, riders must be at least 18 years of age or the age of legal majority in their local jurisdiction. "
