Canadians are getting a new feature in their Uber app that's designed to make trips with the ride-hailing company safer. The new Uber pin code helps riders ensure that they get into the right car. People across Canada can now enable this feature and get pin codes for their rides through the app.\nAs of January 7, the ride company is rolling out a new form of verification for riders and drivers in Canada that's all about safety.\nWith the new feature, users are able to have the option of getting a four-digit pin code through the app to give to their driver before starting each ride.\nTo turn on this feature you just go into your Uber app, go to settings and tap on "Verify Your Ride" then choose to use the pin verification.\nYou can choose to use it on every single trip you take or on just nighttime trips from 9:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.\nIf you use this feature, you'll get a unique four-digit pin code in the app when the driver is on their way to the pickup location.\nWhen the car arrives you can tell the driver the code before getting into the car.\nThe driver has to put the code into their app for the ride to be verified and your trip to begin.\nView this post on Instagram My kind of Uber #theDrivingGrid . . . . . . . . . #mercedes #amg #amggt #merc #uber #princeadventure #519drives #amggts #merc #mercedesbenz #mercedescanada #mercedesbenzlondon #guelph #downtownguelph #london #519drives #ubercanada A post shared by The Driving Grid (@thedrivinggrid) on Jun 23, 2019 at 11:31am PDT\n"We are constantly working and innovating to provide riders and drivers with the tools they need to help ensure a safe and reliable experience," said Sachin Kansal, Uber's Head of Safety Products, in a news release. "This new feature will provide peace of mind that you are getting into the right vehicle."\nIf you have the new verification method enabled, your trip can't start until the correct pin is put into the driver's app.\nYou'll know if the driver is your driver because after the code is put in you get a notification that your ride is verified.\nThe pin codes were first announced in September and then piloted in seven cities in December. Now the feature is rolling out across Canada and the U.S.\nView this post on Instagram All surfer and photographer Adam Bartoshesky, known to most as @captainbarto, wants to do after a long flight is keep moving.
