Lastly, the third most important rule to staying safe is telling your friends and family where you are at all times. There are various apps where you can keep your friends updated of your location. There is an easy, free app called “find my friends,” where you can simply share your location forever with your friends or even just for a day. Additionally, there is an option when you Uber alone, that you can share your journey with whoever you want to. This way someone will know where you are at all times and know that you got to your destination safely. Friends are also able to know when to expect you and track you are getting to them or home safely.
