Uber drivers in Kenya will no longer have access to your number

Uber has launched a privacy feature on its service that will see the phone numbers of both drivers and customers anonymized. This means that the two parties won’t be able to see each other’s numbers when contacting each other.

Drivers will now see the same contact number for each customer that contacts them. Once a trip comes to an end, customers can use Uber’s in-app support feature in case they need to reach a driver.
