Arriving Now: Disguised phone numbers for riders and drivers in India
Recently I wrote a post about most wanted features in Uber app. I mentioned one feature which was to keep my number secret from drivers and voila Uber is rolling out this feature in india.


Ola already announced such feature few days back and Uber followed the suite. Uber announced latest safety innovation for drivers and riders in India – Disguised Phone Numbers.
  
Uber is deploying disguised phone number technology in India. This ensures that all calls between riders and driver-partners are connected using anonymous phone numbers — so both sides can communicate with each other to coordinate a pick-up without revealing their personal phone numbers.

How does it work?

Its really good move to hide numbers from each other, specially woman customers will feel more safe as they don't want to share their numbers with unknown people.
You just need to update your app to get this feature if you want to call to driver. All the drivers app will be updated automatically so now onward driver will not know your number.
