What should you keep in mind after deletion?

Once you delete your Uber account via the app or the website, it will be deactivated immediately at first. The final deletion will take place only after a period of 30 days. During this time, you can simply log back in with your data and the deletion will be automatically canceled. After the period has expired, you can check the deletion by trying to log in again with your data. After the deadline, any rewards, credits, or other promotions will also expire.

If you have Uber Eats installed in addition to the Uber app for ride services, this account will also be deactivated and deleted afterwards.

If you did not provide a valid mobile number when setting up your Uber account, the account cannot be deleted using the verification code. In this case, you should email the provider and ask for help with deactivation.

Conclusion: Delete your Uber account in a few steps.

So, as convenient as the app is for daily use, it is also easy to delete your Uber account. Securing it via email address, password, and PIN increases protection and reduces the risk of someone else accessing or deleting your account. It is important to keep the transition period in mind. During this time, your account is only deactivated, but it can be used again at any time. If for some reason the deletion does not work, you can get help from the company’s customer support.
