Uber used remote computer system to protect data

(MENAFN) Uber has confessed of remotely locking equipment in foreign offices to protect information on its computers in the case of raids, as it has been the subject of several investigations in many cities.

Bloomberg reported that the ride-hailing app firm used a security system to shield its computers when investigators raid its offices.

It has been used more than two dozen times in cities including Paris, Hong Kong, Brussels, Amsterdam and Montreal, Bloomberg added.

Managers at Uber offices are believed to be trained to use it, as they page a number which alerts specially trained staff at Uber's headquarters when offices are faced with a raid.
