  1. I saw that. And also that Uber knew about it long before they admitted it.

    1. I've just found out that part. K tells me Uber paid the ransom for the details, but didn't warn the users they'd been hacked.

  2. While I've had the app on my phone for a long time, I had never joined until we were about to travel late last month. Given our experience of Uber, the hacking and the cover up, I should unjoin Uber.

    1. Margaret-whiteangel; I heard later the details were being held to ransom, Uber paid up that ransom, but failed to warn users they had been hacked.
      NO Uber for me, ever.

    1. Ann O'Dyne; no no, internet is iffy enough sometimes in the city, going to the country would be worse. Some areas don't even have mobile phone coverage.

  6. Their failure to advise their customers is the truly horrific thing.....it kills all faith in the service.

  7. I'm more irritated (no, enraged) that we've paid $17 Milllllion to pay off women who have been harassed by our congressmen. The swamp is sleazier than I ever thought.

  8. My grandchildren, nieces and nephews all use Uber and love it. I wonder what this will do to their ideas about it.

    1. Granny Annie; perhaps you could inform them so at least they know. If they're paying with cash, they'd be okay, it's just those who use a credit card.

    1. fishducky; lucky you. My husband was often too busy to drive me anywhere, even if he was going in the same direction and passing where I wanted to go. I caught a bus...
