Uber is also upgrading its driver screening process.

Numerous passengers of Uber have been complaining about the Driver's behaviours and to keep an eye on their behaviours, they will soon introduce new technology within the app.

The company is launching a new auto rental service on its app, giving Uber's users access to a vehicle for short needs like a daytime field trip or picking up groceries.

The Uber CEO joined Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser at the event.

In a FTC press release, the agency said the breach - which was not revealed until November 2017 - occurred in the fall of 2016 and was the result of "lax security choices Uber made in its use of the third-party cloud storage service".

Thursday's expansion of that settlement, the FTC said, came after it learned Uber failed to disclose a 2016 breach that exposed 25 million names and email addresses, 22 million names and mobile phone numbers, and 600,000 names and driver's license numbers of US Uber drivers and riders. Together, they announced that the company would open a new service center for Uber drivers in an often-overlooked part of the city across the Anacostia River from the U.S. Capitol.

Khosrowshahi told Guthrie that he believes "early on, these technology companies were fairly idealistic, for the right reasons", but acknowledged that things have changed and added later that he would "welcome regulation". "That's why we want to provide alternatives to personal vehicle ownership by bringing together multiple modes of transportation right in our app".

Concerning about the data-sharing part, Uber looks to expand its Movement Project to more than 12 new cities. This gives users greater and more convenient access to tickets for public transit services. "Cars are shared by people throughout the city and equipped with Getaround's technology for instant access". Getaround is now available in cities like Seattle, DC, Portland, San Francisco and Oakland.
