Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why does the app require all these permissions?

Some app users are concerned about the number of permissions the app requires, in general, the app only uses additional permissions when the user initiates specific activities where these are required.

Here are the specific examples of how it uses the permissions:

Contacts - When you add contacts, you can select them from your existing contacts.

Location - Features like live ride view on map, and in-app(group) chat makes ride coordination seamless. When you activate an emergency alert, the app can tell your contacts where you are. It is also used when you want to add home location.

SMS - In-group chat enabled to chat with your selected ride-share group. Send an SMS to your emergency contacts showing your location. It will also send an SMS to contacts when you cancel the alert.

Photos/Media/Files - So you can add a photo of yourself at registration, or share location path. The app never does this in the background - you must initiate this.

2. What does the app icon at the top of my screen mean? Is the app using data or GPS in the background?

The app doesn't use services (such as GPS or data) in the background. It only does so when the app is open and active.

3. Rewards and incentives:

The payments are cashless and completely automated. Ride partners can share costs seamlessly, without even discussing about payments. The rider will have insentive for rides shared as per his/her choice of fare.
