Privacy concerns as Uber Eats drivers start taking photos of ID for alcohol orders

Victoria’s privacy commissioner has questioned why the food delivery service needs to take photos of driver’s licences or other ID at all

Uber’s food delivery drivers are now required to take a photo of the driver’s licence or other ID of people who order alcohol but, Uber Eats has insisted, the pictures won’t be retained.
