Uber has defended itself following accusations that a lack of internal security allowed employees to spy on rides in real-time.

The firm's former forensic investigator made the allegations in a court declaration.

Uber said it had "hundreds of security and privacy experts working around the clock" to protect its data.

The firm recently settled a case in New York that alleged its "God View" tool was used to monitor rides.

"Uber's lack of security regarding its customer data was resulting in Uber employees being able to track high-profile politicians, celebrities, and even personal acquaintances of Uber employees, including ex-boyfriends/girlfriends, and ex-spouses," wrote former forensic investigator Ward Spangenberg in his court declaration.
