The Privacy Settings menu in the RedCab rider app gives users the ability to set or update their location and contacts sharing preferences, and their preferences for receiving mobile notifications from RedCab. Riders can also delete their RedCab account from the Privacy Settings menu.
Most mobile platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without your consent. And these platforms have different permission systems for obtaining your consent.

Android devices will notify you of the permissions that the RedCab app seeks before you first use the app, and your use of the app constitutes your consent.
After every trip, driver partners and riders are able to rate each other, as well as give feedback on how the trip went. This two-way system holds everyone accountable for their behavior. Accountability helps create a respectful, safe environment for both driver partners and riders. Your rider rating is available in the main menu of the RedCab rider app. Your driver partner rating is available in the Ratings tab of the RedCab Partner app.
