There is a good news for those who are wary of potentially sketchy Uber drivers finding out exactly where they live. Uber has a come up with a fix in the form of a clever update to its app for users in the United States.

Uber app – instead of sharing your address – now lets you enter in the names of cross streets as a pick-up or drop-off destination. Which can prove to be handy when you don’t want to disclose your location.

To use the feature, simply type in the two street names of a cross you can get to and make your way there to be picked up. Alternatively, you can also let the app detect your location and then drag the map pin to anywhere else that’s convenient.

The new feature is rolling out across the US.
