Many people will be glad to know that transport service, Uber says it is in the process of testing  of security features, including an emergency button, to ensure the safety of passengers.

In the past few months, the convenient cab service has faced scrutiny after reports of bogus drivers and crimes committed inside ‘ubers’. In August, a Johannesburg couple was kidnapped and attacked allegedly by a man posing as an Uber driver.

Uber has also appointed a new head of physical security to improve security measures for users. Uber's Alon Lits says the company has started testing a number of safety features.
