How to Delete Your Uber Account Permanently
Uber is a very popular transportation network which allows you to have a taxi come right to your house through an application, pay for the ride with your credit card and get where you need to go with ease. However, it has also been linked to the decline of some taxi companies and the rating system can cause anxiety between service and customer when trying to keep as close to 5 stars as possible (see Black Mirror season 3 for possible future scenarios). With recent controversial comments and support for Donald Trump, many people are wanting to delete their account as a sign of protest. Whether your reasons are political, practical or just a desire to walk more, oneHOWTO shows you just how to delete your Uber account permanently.
Start to delete your Uber account permanently by signing in on their landing page. If you have forgotten your password you can enter your email address and they will send you an email to create a new one.
Go to the "Account and Payment" section which should be on the top right of your screen. Either click the header or the "More >" section in bold to take you to all the options.
In the left hand column you will see a selection of links under the header "Account Settings and Ratings". Near the bottom of this list is the option "Delete my Uber account" which we have highlighted in red. Click on this link to delete your Uber account permanently.
This link will take you to an easy to use section to delete your Uber account which has two text boxes. The first is titled "Do you wish to delete your account?" and you can say either "yes" or "no". Why you would be on the page to delete your Uber account and select "no" seems odd, but you can do it if you have changed our mind. If you do still want to delete your account write "yes".
You can type in any reason you have to delete your Uber account in this box. It is not necessary to give one, but if you are doing it in protest you can state it here. Uber will delete the account and send you an email once it is done.
