Uber Data Breaches : Puts Fire On Social Media

Uber

Uber's latest privacy scandal has put the company on the hot seat, with lawmakers and customers alike wondering how the ride-sharing service handles sensitive personal data. The news comes just months after Uber settled a lawsuit by Google for $500 million over its use of private data collected from drivers.

The court documents revealed that Uber had been collecting and storing more than 50 million drivers' names, licence plate numbers, email addresses and mobile phone numbers in a database called "God View," which allowed it to track their movements around the country.

The company also reportedly tracked drivers' locations in real time and tracked their cars while they were off duty, according to The New York Times. That information was accessible to the entire company through a computer system known as "God View."

Uber's chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi apologised for the incident on Wednesday, saying that "none of this should have happened," but that he took full responsibility for what happened at Uber. He also promised to provide more information about how they plan to prevent similar future breaches from occurring again.

Khosrowshahi said in an interview with CNNMoney that he didn't know about this breach until he read about it in The New York Times on Tuesday morning. He added that he found out about it because reporters called him "out of the blue". The latest breach drew attention because of its potential to raise questions about whether Uber can be trusted with such sensitive personal information.

The issue is that as many as 57 million people's names, email addresses and phone numbers were leaked when an attacker accessed a cloud storage service for Uber employees last year. The company said it immediately took steps to secure the data, but it is still unclear who stole it from where or when.

Uber is a great company. It's one of the most innovative companies in the world, and its mission to help people get around on demand has changed transportation forever. But Uber is also facing a major challenge right now: a growing public backlash against its aggressive expansion.

The company's reputation has taken a hit in recent months, thanks to some bad PR and a series of high-profile scandals. In June, one of its drivers was arrested after allegedly raping a passenger; in February, another driver was accused of running over six people with his car; and in December 2015, an Uber executive said that he had used his private jet at least once for a trip from Los Angeles to New York City — even though there was no seat available for him on any commercial flights that day.

Uber has not been performing well for a few months because of growing users. Uber has been facing the problem of low employee retention rate and many people are leaving the company every day. The company has also been facing a lot of criticism from customers who are not happy with the service.

Uber recently announced that it will be launching its own ride-hailing app on April 5th, which is supposed to be better than its competitor Lyft. But as we all know, Uber has been facing a lot of problems since it was born and it seems like it will never be able to compete with its competitors even after spending billions of dollars on new technology and services.

Final Words

Uber's real-time location system has been plagued by a series of issues that have affected billions of trips. Uber's (UBER) app is now being used by more than 50 million people worldwide, according to the company, and it has become the most valuable startup in history, with a market value of about $70 billion. But lately, Uber's growth has slowed down as the company struggles to keep up with demand.
