Lyft announce new background screening policies

This week, Lyft announced an expansion of their background check process to include continuous criminal monitoring.

Two new features to enhance the safety and security of the Lyft platform have been implemented by the company:

  1. Continuous background checks
  2. Enhanced identity verification

Continuous background checks will provide Lyft with daily monitoring of its active drivers and immediate notification of any disqualifying criminal convictions. Any driver who does not pass both the annual and continuous screenings will be barred from the platform.

The enhanced identity verification process will layer onto the variety of security tools we already use to detect early signals of fraud, and such potentially fraudulent drivers will be required to complete this verification process in order to continue driving on our platform.

Uber rolled out a number of changes last summer, including continuous background checks, and it appears like Lyft followed in their footsteps, as both companies prepare(d) to go public in 2019.
