On the help section of its website, Uber says drivers may “install and use video cameras to record riders for purposes of safety.” The company encourages drivers to check local regulations on using and disclosing their recording equipment. Uber said it doesn't know how many drivers use dash cams in their vehicles.
So, do you need a dash cam for Uber? If you're an Uber driver, a Lyft driver, or drive for another rideshare company, a dashcam is a must. That's because things like car accidents are much more likely to occur when you're driving for rideshare services simply because of the increased amount of time you're on the road.
On top of, can Uber drivers videotape passengers?
Drivers are permitted to record rides for security documentation, but may not broadcast or publish the footage. "Broadcasting a person's image, audio, or video recording is a violation of these terms and may result in loss of account access," Uber's guidelines state.
Should I sit in the front or back of Uber?
4. Be a back-seat rider. Whenever possible, sit in the back seat, especially if you're riding alone. This helps ensure that you can safely exit on either side of the vehicle to avoid moving traffic, and it gives you and your driver some personal space.

Recordings will be stored on the rider or driver's phone and encrypted to protect privacy, and users will not be able to listen to them. ... The recording feature also raises privacy concerns that drivers or passengers could have their conversations recorded without their knowledge or consent. “It's a digital recording.
Most camera systems will mount on the dash in order to get a view of the driver and the people in the back seat. ... Lyft tells its drivers to comply with their city and state's regulations when it comes to recording devices. It says some locations may not allow recording devices at all, while others may require signage.
