Uber is about to get a whole lot more personal, as the company has just revealed that it aims to bring location-based sharing to the application.
The policy now says that the app will soon allow drivers to track your location if the user allows it. The service is an opt-in method, meaning it can be disabled at any time. However, Uber themselves has claimed that by allowing the service, it allows a much faster pick-up as the driver knows your exact location. For example, there is now the option of drivers meeting you along the way, rather than driving to the pre-determined meeting location you specified within the app.
