US government says it will no longer use Uber in border areas

US government officials have announced that they will no long be using the popular ride-hailing app in the US border areas, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

In a statement, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said that it will begin using the ride-sharing app to transport passengers between its terminals and its stations.

The decision to stop using Uber comes after the FBI started investigating the company for its alleged role in facilitating the commission of the 2015 terror attack on a New York City subway.

Uber, which has more than 3 million active users worldwide, has been facing a number of privacy and security concerns.

The company is currently under investigation by the US Federal Trade Commission over its role in the attack.

The company has faced criticism for its failure to encrypt passenger data before it was able to use it for profit.
