Frequently Asked Questions

We encourage you to use the safety features anytime you need them: before, during, or after a dash.

You can easily find all the available safety features by tapping the blue shield icon in the top right corner of the home screen (next to the Help button), or on the top right corner of your app.

Yes. Our suite of safety features are available and actively monitoring your safety during every dash, 24/7 a day. Whenever you need help, DoorDash is ready to provide it.

All of our safety tools are free to use, but many emergency services, such as ambulances, have separate costs, which Dashers are required to cover. Your phone’s carrier rates may also apply. If you get injured while dashing, you may be eligible for coverage (see details here).

If you need emergency help but are having issues with our safety features for any reason, leave the app and dial 911 directly from your phone.

You should only use the safety tools for safety-related help when on a dash. For all other issues, please contact DoorDash Support. Our 24/7 Support Team will be happy to assist you with any non-emergency issues.

Please note: misusing the safety tools (for example, to unassign from an order) may lead to the deactivation of your Dasher account.
