With the help of real-life experiences in China, numerous foreign visitors considered China to be one of the much safer countries in the world, as its strict prohibition on gun-violence/drugs by law and its unique oriental culture. Although China now has the most population, of over 1.4 billion, and a lower crime rate, it is still difficult to avoid any risk of ride-hailing crimes occurring.

借助真实的亲身经历,许多国际游客认为中国是世界上更安全的国家之一,因为无论是中国的法律和还是其独特的东方文化都严令禁止枪支暴力和毒品。虽然中国现在是拥有14亿多的人口大国,犯罪率也较低,但依然很难避免网约车犯罪案件的发生。

Please note: it will be unable for DiDi to contact you or your emergency contacts in cases of danger if you use DiDi to call the police without logging into your DiDi account.

然后,如下所示,进入了滴滴的登录界面。在这里,老用户可以用已注册过滴滴的手机号码,或现有的支付宝或微信账号就能轻松地登录滴滴应用。注意:若不先登录就使用滴滴打车的话,遇到危险报警时滴滴将无法联系到你本人或是你的紧急联系人。

Sign up/Login to DiDi

For fresh users, creating a DiDi account is necessary and urgent right now. Please first to change the country or region code if necessary, then enter your valid phone number and tap the Next button to get the phone number verified.

Then, a 6-figure verification code should be auto-sent via the message to the phone number you just submitted. Enter the correct verification code once you receive this message or you have to resend it with a click.

此时,一个六位数的验证码应已通过短信自动发送到你的手机上了。输入已收到的验证码,或者点击选择再次发送。

Once getting verified with success, the new user will be asked to set up an 8-to-16-character password. Please make it as much stronger as possible, long enough plus at least two combinations of letters/figures/limited symbols.

The higher your safety awareness score is, the safer your DiDi account could be. Therefore, the first thing to promote your score is to add at least one emergency contact, the trusted person who is permitted to receive your trip information auto-sent by the DiDi app while you are hailing a ride via the DiDi app.

你的安全意识分越高,你的滴滴账号就越安全。因此,首当其冲要做的事就是添加至少一位紧急联系人,允许他/她收到来自滴滴自动分享的你正在使用滴滴打车时的行程信息。

As the screenshot guided, tap the button “Emergency Contacts” – “Add Contacts” to add a new one. Or you can tap the “Edit” button to change the setting of an existing contact.

如图所示,可点击“紧急联系人” – “新增紧急联系人”来添加。或点击“管理”来变更已有紧急联系人的信息。

Make sure you have turned on the “Auto-Share Status” feature for your emergency contact person which is the key function for strengthening your trip’s safety.  Then you can decide when (default time period is OK) and how far your trip occurs to trigger the auto-sharing feature by changing the value or keep the default settings, to avoid over sending messages to disturb your contacts. Check out the official video here.

增强安全性最关键的一步是,请确保已对该联系人开启了“自动分享行程”功能。然后,你可以默认或更改设置来决定在哪一个时间段(默认时间段还不错)和行程距离内才触发自动分享行程的功能,避免发送过量短信打扰到你的紧急联系人。

If you decide to turn off the “Auto-Share Status” function, you can still trigger the manual way to send your trip info to your families and friends during your ride-hailing period. Please jump to the following step of manually sharing.

若选择关闭“自动分享行程”的功能,你仍然可以在使用滴滴打车期间通过手动的方式将行程信息分享给你的亲友。
