Uber Family Profile

  • Within the Uber App, click on Settings, Profiles, Add Family Profile (or add a business or personal profile if you only currently have 1 profile).

    Since you have to affirmatively choose to add a Family Profile and then decide which profile to use when using Uber, the feature is transparent. As with all types of shared family services and plans, survivors of abuse may want to safety plan with a trained advocate about shared phone plans, shared bank accounts, shared payment plans, known passwords & PIN numbers, etc.
