October 8, 2020

If you are not wearing a mask, your ride will be cancelled.

The ride-sharing app, Uber, has rolled out a new feature called Mask Verification. Basically, it will prompt users to take a picture of themselves wearing a mask before a trip will commence. If the software pics up that you are not wearing a mask, the requested ride will be cancelled. Uber says that this is to ensure the safety of riders and drivers.
