Uber gives back Location-Sharing Control to the User

Last December Uber made changes to its privacy settings removing the ‘While Using’ setting to location-sharing options. In practice, for users this meant having to agree to ‘share location information’ with the app all the time or not use the app. Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) reports that Uber reconsidered this change now giving their user the choice about sharing their location information. The ‘While Using’ setting is back, and Uber stated that the post-ride tracking will end also for users who pick the ‘Always’ option.
