Part A  Uber Privacy代写

The transport industry has grown thanks to the technology and the growth in the global economy, this according to Sindakis et al. (2015) concerning Europe. With global economy heading to the ceiling, the lifestyle is also improving. Regarding lifestyle and economy, people want to convenience and to move faster. The birth of Uber is particularly based on these paradigms. Uber is a transport company that uses GPS guided transport system to its customers (Uber.com).

The company offers one of the innovative transport services in the 21st century. Their client only requires to have a smartphone and Uber to access their services at their doorstep. However, according to Schechner et al. (2016), this innovation has raised great concern about privacy. The company has been accused of sharing client information with its drivers which most of the concerns view this as a breach of privacy policy as well as the security concern of the client.

In its operations, for any client to access it services, one must have a smartphone which is internet enabled and install Uber app(Uber.com). Uber Privacy代写

For this service to work, the company needs to access the client’s location at all times whereby the client can track their drivers, and the driver can track their clients. It is an end to end connection where each one view the location of the other. The access to location, as the company argues, is for improved services to its customers, which I agree. Most of the users agree to this ignorantly without minding to its implication t their privacy. Though when a client agrees to location access, it becomes legal and binding, what and how the company handles with the data concerns many.

The questions that many are asking, what if the driver is carjacked? Will this not lead the robbers to the client? This is a breach of privacy many have argued by t is the client who agrees and subscribes to the terms. The company assurance notwithstanding, people need to be self-aware and know that with this service their location is constantly trailed using the phone and have to learn how to live and adapt to t if not taking precautionary measures.

Part C  Uber Privacy代写

Most people have not been keen on privacy issues as long as they receive the services they were seeking. They ignore the fact that someone is watching their movement until such a time one feels threatened due to lack of privacy. Research has shown that people disregard reading the privacy policy of usage and go on to accepting and subscribing to them. The move is risky as I am about to show how one loses the privacy everyone would wish to have.

In part B above, I have used a pictorial representation of how Uber function and how privacy to location is accessed with the discretion of the client. Like previously stated, services are accessed using mobile app in iOS or Android. Both of these operating systems have a way o allowing apps to access the location of the phone (Kadëna & Esmeralda 145). This way, as shown above, when a client login he/she is prompted with the need for the app always to access the location of the phone. Most people unknowingly allow, and this gives the company liberty to trail your movement.

Initially, the location access is for creating efficiency and convenience. In this regard, the client is required to give their current location and the destination to enable calculation of the cost as shown above. Beside cost tracking, the client is also able to track the driver and how far the car is from the place of pick up and vice versa. However, what if this information falls to the wrong hands with the intention to harm the innocent client? This has been a major concern. As such, people need to be educated on issues regarding location access (Kadëna & Esmeralda 154) and how they can be able to regulate their visibility through the GPS.
