Uber just threatened me to deactivate me because I am submitting false GPS location Data Urgent Plea

Uber just sent me a message that they will deactivate me immediately if they detect Again I am using false GPS location Data?
WTF!!
Then contacted support in the Philippines, and was told I need to turn over my phone for analysis immediately to the Uber Greenlight Hub.
Privacy issues.
I have zero to hide, work my ass off, then am accused of supplying false GPS location Data.
This is absolute BS from Uber and a gross violation of my privacy rights.
I need this job to pay my rent, insurance and feed my autistic son.
Now Uber sends a one time email While beginning to complete a survey they sent me regarding my feedback on their destination filter. I then selected 1 reason listed out of 6 reasons a driver might be dissatisfied and was attempting to select several other reasons.
Then I received a threat of deactivation from Uber
So Uber is now in the censorship business?

Uber is creepy as Hell. You will never have privacy with their apps on your phone.

Drive for somebody else.

Do you remember what did you do different an hour or so before you received the email?

1. You must force close the Uber app when you are not online or they will track you forever. You can tell because the GPS icon will turn on and turn off immediately when you force close the Uber app.
2. Each time Uber updates their app they always turn the app on so they can, once again, continue tracking your location until you force close it. They are, to my knowledge, the only company in the world that does this. There is a reason the want to track everyone that has their app.

Do you have IOS 12 Beta x installed on your phone? There is another thread where the driver got the same thing. He went to a hub and they determined the pre release beta was causing the issue.

Dude, tell me you didn't actually respond with honest negative feedback!? Driving for Uber and Lyft is a chance to experience living in East Germany, Circa 1970s, in case you didnt have that opportunity. Next time consult an old timer who grew up behind the iron curtain before responding to Uber or Lyft driver experience surveys, ok?

Lol, that really down plays the misery of those that actually went through that. If you really think driving uber is equivalent to living in East Germany during those days, you need to both get a grip on reality and resassess what youre doing with your life.

Your location issue has nothing to do with that survey. More likely: you are running iOS beta, or you were driving while the rider app was open.

Also, you already have zero privacy with Uber. They have access to your camera, microphone, they tap your calls, monitor your location and on and on. So unless you have child porn on your phone get over your privacy issues and go to the hub and save your job that pays the bills for you and your autistic son.

Yeah, same pay issues but I’ve got Lyft and other sources of income, I’m good.

Was it iOS that was causing your spoofing issues? You weren't the only one who had that issue.

Thanks for chatting here. Looking to talk to a grounded person who has experience with Lyft.

Regarding spoofing, iOS beta,
The real issue was with unknown Apple ios beta security certificates that Uber IT had not yet received.
