Safety toolkit feature?

I must admit, I don't know if this is a new future that's been recently added but there's a safety tool kit button in the bottom left corner. It's for drivers to share our location and an emergency Panic 9-1-1 button. Now the 911 button is definitely welcomed. However, it doesn't explain how it works or how to activate it. It does tell you how to share your location but it does not address the 9-1-1 button. Clearly pushing that button doesn't actually activate 911 cuz I've pressed it a few times, trying to figure out how to use it LOL

Pushing that button just reveals the words "Safety Toolkit" on my phone and that's it. It did have the share location and 911 options, but the app updated yesterday and apparently they disabled the safety toolkit for me.

Ah ha . . . perhaps we are the wayward children? Mine doesn't do anything either:frown:
Maybe it only works when you are on a ride????????
Ooohhh good call! but only on trips with passengers 4.8 and above :confused: you know cuz Uber's way of thinking is exact opposite of logical lol
