An emergency contact is a person you choose that may be contacted if there’s an emergency on a trip and Uber is unable to contact you directly.
Uber will try to call you first if an emergency is reported during a trip or delivery. If we can’t reach you, Uber may attempt to call your emergency contacts if it is reported that:
Uber may call your emergency contact for two reasons:
You can add any number as an emergency contact, but Uber will only try to contact the two contacts that you added most recently.
If Uber can get in touch with your first emergency contact, we won’t call the second.
Uber is committed to the privacy of user data. Your contacts will only be called in case of an emergency. If you remove an emergency contact from your account, Uber will delete this information immediately.
You can update your emergency contacts at any time in the app.
