Uber investigates New York exec for privacy violations
Buzzfeed talked to two former Uber employees who said that the company's corporate employees can track customers using an internal company tool known as "God View.” God View shows an Uber vehicle’s location, as well as the location of a customer requesting a car.
According to the Buzzfeed report, Johana Bhuiyan, a Buzzfeed journalist, took an Uber car to an interview with Josh Mohrer, the general manager of Uber New York. Upon meeting with Bhuiyan, Mohrer said, “There you are.”
Pointing towards his iPhone, he added, “I was tracking you.” Mohrer tracked Bhuiyan without her consent.
Earlier email conversations between Bhuiyan and Mohrer pointed to Mohrer doing this previously, emailing logs of Bhuiyan’s Uber use, which he accessed without Bhuiyan’s permission.
