How to delete your Uber account

Maybe it’s because of the multiple PR nightmares. Maybe it is because you just got car and no longer need a strange chauffeur. For whatever reason, you’ve decided Uber isn’t right for you. Well we’re here to show you how to say goodbye to the ridesharing service once and for all.

Step 2: In the upper-left corner of your screen, tap the menu icon, which is denoted by three horizontal lines.

Step 3: Once the menu pops up, tap Settings.

Step 9: Uber will then provide you with one more chance to opt out of canceling. Tap Delete to confirm your decision.
