In the Uber driving eco-system, both passengers and riders rate each other. Passenger ratings are normally hidden from consumers, but Aaron Landy has written about very clever trick to find it out, over the the new blogging service, Medium.
As soon as this hit the interwebs, the trick went viral. Twitter lit up with commentary.
I’m a 5 on Uber, laddies! Ladies. Bill of ladings. How do you do this. https://t.co/c6t8e918t1— Glenn Fleishman, just the name, nothing else (@GlennF) July 28, 2014
In hindsight, I’m not sure why Uber hides the passenger rating system from consumers. If I’m rude to my riders, I’d kind of like to know. I strive to be a good person, but maybe I’m inadvertently rude.
Maybe this loophole will convince Uber to open up the rating system. Either way, the steps are outlined below:
Here are the steps.
1. Open up the mobile Uber website in your browser at https://m.uber.com and login.
2. Open up a console window. In Chrome on Mac you can press (command + option + j).
We’re not sure how long this loophole is going to last, so try it out while you can.
