If you see an unfamiliar charge from Uber on your credit card or bank account, review the information on this page. IS IT A PENDING CHARGE? A "pending" charge may be an authorization hold that will eventually drop off your account It won't ever be charged. We issue authorization holds as a way to better protect against fraud that may result from unauthorized card usage. You may see an authorization hold if you recently added a new payment method, or if you haven't used Uber in a while. Moreover, authorization holds are not applied when you use Uber Cash to pay for your trip. If you would like to avoid an authorization hold, you can use Uber Cash. IS A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER USING YOUR ACCOUNT? Check with them if you can. They may have recently taken a trip and will recognize the charge you're seeing. DID YOU RECENTLY CANCEL A TRIP?
