Delivery driver safety FAQs

Some delivery partners may feel safer knowing their friends or family have their location in case of emergency. On iOS devices, you can share your location through your Messages app, and you would need to enable your location sharing on Android devices. For additional support, please visit our Help Center for step-by-step instructions.

Contact your local emergency services if you’re injured, or if anyone’s immediate safety is threatened. If there isn’t an immediate safety threat, but you can’t fulfill an order, please select There’s a Problem at the bottom of the order in the Driver app and follow the on-screen instructions.
