    I don't see where anything really changed. I've had a background check run on or near the anniversary date of signing up every year now, by checker.

    Seems like PR fluff to me.

    I had mine done last week. I thought it was too soon. Glad I wasn't waitlisted and stuck with Lyft.

    What about making passengers get background checks, fingerprinted, and have them put a picture up before using rider app. No one is talking about the drivers that were killed, kidnapped, or assaulted by passengers

    So if 711 asked you for a photo id, ss# and fingerprint to buy a slurpee you would be ok with that?

    Becauss a 711 got robbed the other day

    He has a point though and I would support background checks for riders. Last thing we need are violent ex-cons riding with us when we are supposedly unarmed and in a position of vulnerability.
    Hopefully, Uber includes immigration status as well

    So you guys would give up earnings for safer riders?

    The reality is there is a significantly bigger risk to your life than riders and it's a simply just driving that car

    This happened to me this week. Funny thing is that it was completed two months ago and completely clear, but now I'm temp deactivated pending review. WTAH Uber?
    I work full-time at a bank, held a top secret SCI clearance for 22 years as an Army officer, and now Uber is reviewing whether I'm moral enough?

    This is exactly what happens when you let an APP run your business.

    You unintentionally screw over the sources of your revenue, you run over pedestrians, and you lose billions each year.

    I've had two or three a year since I signed up 3.5 years ago. Once I had three in a six week period. Are these new ones any different? I keep worrying they'll change their mind on my apple core ticket from 6 years ago. (Yes I got a ticket for throwing an apple core out of my car window

    You work full time at a bank, claim to be a Army officer, yet not smart enough to find a decent part time gig that actually earns you income? Then again, most Army officers I know are dumb as a rock, so what could one expect of our 'best and brightest." ;-)

    Agreed, I’m 3 years into uber. Every year Checkr sends me an email to confirm my info and alert me that I’m being re-checked .

    Today’s news is PR directed to passengers and media

    Not fluff. Uber’s background checks are more thorough and extensive now, drivers who previously “qualified” are now becoming deactivated.
