Privacy Advocates Ask Uber To Reverse Decision To Track Users After Rides End

After Uber introduced a controversial app update that tracks users’ locations even when they’re not using the app, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a leading privacy group, has asked the company roll it back. "Tracking you five minutes after you have been dropped off — some people might have very legitimate reasons why they don’t want a record about that,” said Kurt Opsahl, deputy executive director and general counsel at EFF. “They may be concerned about getting into some database about their location and may get dropped off across the street. It’s sad to take that away."
