Women Say Uber Ride Took Scary Turn

In an effort to improve passenger safety, Uber has updated its Family Profiles feature with the ability to track riders in your closed group from the time they hop in a cab to the moment they reach their destination.

The Trip Tracker feature will let you know when one of your loved ones are taking a cab and show you the route they're taking in real-time on a map. It'll also notify you when they've arrived at their destination.

That should bring some peace of mind to people who are worried about their spouses, children or parents traveling through the city by themselves.

In addition, Family Profiles lets you take care of the bill instead of charging the passenger. That's handy when you share a credit card with other members of your family.

Uber says it's now made Trip Tracker available to users across the globe.
