Subscriptions and services — such as streaming platforms, beauty and lifestyle boxes, and food delivery — can come in handy. Take Uber, for instance. You don’t necessarily have to pay a subscription fee to access the service — you only pay for the vehicles that get you from Point A to Point B. But if the app is no longer serving you, it may be time to part with it. Here is how to delete your Uber account in a few simple steps.
Note: If you delete your Uber account, you will also lose access to your Uber Eats account. Beware of what you’re getting rid of before hitting that delete button.
How to Delete Uber Account
You can delete your Uber account in the app or online. Uber will send you a temporary verification code to verify your identity before allowing you to delete your account.
When you delete it, your information will be stored for 30 days in case you want to reactivate your account. After 30 days, Uber will permanently delete your account, and you will lose access to all of your credits, promotions, rewards, and ride history.
