Book UBER to a friend on latest update:
The team has mentioned that “location requests are “static,” and expire after half an hour. For non-Uber users, the company claims the requests disappear after the allotted time; For Uber users, the app will maintain records of where they went, but not who they sent the request to. The spokesperson added that a user must give his or her location every time.
Impact by UBER’s earlier Update:
Earlier this month, Uber rolled out an update that asked users for permission to access their GPS to track them even when they weren’t using the app. A few days later, it was hit with a lawsuit filed by a former employee who claimed that workers used the app to peep on celebrities and former lovers. The lawsuit was particularly troubling given that Uber claimed several years ago that it had already dealt with the problem. It could be a pre release done by UBER for getting the Friend locator out in the market. For this friend locator to function seamlessly, every UBER user would have to share his/her location. Hence this release before the latest update has come.
