Uber policy now prohibits broadcasting passenger images after Missouri driver posted hundreds of videos


ST. LOUIS—The ride-hailing company Uber instituted a new guideline prohibiting drivers from broadcasting passengers’ images amid privacy concerns after a St. Louis, Mo.-area driver posted hundreds of videos. A new privacy policy states Uber drivers are allowed to use dash cameras and other recording devices, but they are not allowed to broadcast and post the images anywhere. Uber said the guideline was in place when a Phoenix driver posted a video from Oct. 29 of Ottawa Senators players insulting the team and one of their coaches. The recording of the NHL players in Phoenix was legal as well since Arizona law requires consent of only one party — in the case of the Uber recording, the driver. But the commission has no authority over Uber, Lyft and other similar services.
