Your data is not safe with app based cab company, may be misuse

Risk at App Based Cab : In the last few years, people’s dependence on app-based transport has increased in India. For convenient and cheap travel, people resort to apps like Ola, Uber or Rapido. During this, people book cars, autos or bikes according to the need. This is making the journey of people easier, but due to booking from the app, your data is reaching them and these companies are storing your information. The logic behind this is that the data is stored to improve the service, but this is not true. These companies are selling your data to third parties.

These apps hold the most data

Recently, a study was done by cyber security company Surfshark. Many shocking information has come out in it. It has been told in the study report that Grabtaxi, Yandex Go and Uber are storing the most data of their customers. Ola also collects the data of its customers.
