Uber has been working overtime to fix its privacy problems

38 sec read

Uber faced some major criticism over its abysmal privacy practices regarding its users in the last few weeks but apparently the company has been working overtime to make things right. The results of its six-week-long external privacy audit have showed that the company has dedicated an impressive amount of resources and time to ensuring the privacy of its users. 

The results from Uber’s six-week-long external privacy audit, spurred on by several high profile security controversies, are in. And, surprisingly, the final report looks positively rosy for the on-demand taxi company . “Uber has dedicated significantly more resources to privacy than we have observed of other companies of its age, sector, and size,” auditors from the law firm Hogan Lovells said in a statement. That’s not exactly what you’d expect from a company that had one of its executives joke about tracking journalists’ private lives using its internal data. Uber admits “we haven’t always gotten it right” when it comes to security, and notes that it will continue to “review and iterate” on its policies as it continues to grow.
