Uber Eats gets transparent with its users about the data it shares with delivery people 

Uber Eats introduced a new feature that shows users how much of their personal data is shared with their delivery person when they place an order on the app [application]. 

According to the platform, the feature is part of the platform to add transparency when ordering food on the app. 

The feature will show how much of your information is shared with your courier at every stage of the delivery. 

When the courier accepts the delivery, they will see your first name and last initial, along with your exact delivery location and any customer notes you may have added regarding your order. 

The company tweeted: “Did you know we limit what your delivery person sees about you when they accept your Uber Eats order? We’ve launched a new product so you can see what is shared with a courier when you place an order on the app. US and Canada only.” 

The feature also shows you what information the app deletes after specific orders. If you order alcohol, the delivery person is required to verify your age by scanning your ID, but Uber notes that your ID information is not viewable by the courier after delivery and that the scan of your ID is deleted after 72 hours.
