Your safety comes first.

We continually improve our service and safety standards to ensure an enjoyable rideshare experience for both riders and drivers.

Ride Safe

The safety of our users is our top priority. While you are on a DiDi trip, wherever you are going you should always know that we have your back.

SOS Button

With the tap of a button, you can contact law enforcement and emergency services. Your location details will also be shown in-app for easy reference.

Unmatch drivers

If you think that any of your drivers were not up to standard you can now unmatch with them so your trip requests are never dispatched to them again. Please remember if there was a serious incident to report it to us.

Share trip

Our live GPS tracking allows you to share your trip with your Trusted Contacts. This can be found in the Safety Toolkit.

Private Numbers

When a rider and driver contact each other regarding a trip, whether that be before or after, both phone numbers will be anonymised.

Facial Verification

Facial verification matches a picture of your driver against the approved profile picture to make sure that it is not someone else driving.

Hidden Addresses

To protect your personal information, your specific pick up and drop off addresses are hidden after the trip finishes.

TripCheck

If anything unusual is detected during your trip you will receive a notification. If there is a problem our safety toolkit and SOS button will be made available to you.

Driver Screening

To ensure all DiDi driver-partners are of the highest quality, they’re required to pass a series of safety verifications and background checks prior to driving.

Exceeding Local Government Regulations

There are limitations in the DiDi app to how many hours a driver can be driving for to combat driver fatigue. All vehicles must not exceed the set age of the state they are driving in and must pass an initial inspection and their yearly check-ups.
