Background checks for every pro
We verify their identity, do a criminal background check and make sure their paperwork is up to Urban standards.
Your details stay private
All communication stays in the Urban app, so you’ll never need to share your phone number. Use in-app chat to ask your pro questions before your booking.
All pros are Covid-19 safety trained and follow strict hygiene measures. You can ask them about their safety steps via in-app chat.
Individual ratings and reviews
Choose who delivers your treatment by browsing bios and reading what others thought first.
Our friendly customer support team is on hand via in-app chat during and after all bookings. They’re trained to listen with care and sensitivity.
Zero tolerance approach
Suggestive behaviour is never okay: it’s sexual harassment. We report, ban and safeguard against offenders.
