You cannot outsmart Uber, It knows almost everything about you and your Device

You cannot outsmart Uber, It knows almost everything about you and your Device
Smart Ideas
I used to see comments on facebook, google plus, twitter about accounts getting banned, disabled, barred from booking a ride. Everyone seems complaining about Uber for blocking account. Its true that Uber sweeps all accounts time to time for security and flags some accounts for blocking. Most of the cases are correct where some are not.

People create multiple accounts to get free rides or free credits and enjoy. Here Uber is spending $200 million on marketing in india via free rides, so Uber is making sure it reaches to new users most of the time not fake accounts. 

If you don't want to use Uber account smoothly then follow some rule..

  • Create one and only account for yourself using your mobile number.
  • Add only one paytm account, once and final, don't try to change. Yet you may change, steps are here.
  • Login one and only your account in your device.
  • Different account, must use different device, eg. Your wife should use her device to login.
  • Don't refer hundreds of people at once, take it slow.
  • Don't put your referral code on public media where you don't own the content eg Primary Content Creator

Uber collects 'uncool' amount of data from your device to know your account is unique or not.
According to Hacker News, user revelation has actually listed everything the Uber Android app can learn about users, as found below:
  • Accounts log (Email)
  • App Activity (Name, PackageName, Process Number of activity, Processed id)

  • NetData (bytes received, bytes sent, connection type, interface type)
