Tip before you lose your phone

Signing in to Uber requires text message verification which could be a blocker when you just lost your mobile phone. You can set up a backup verification code to prepare for this kind of inconvenience.

Here’s how:

  1. Go to Uber app and tab your profile picture on the top.
  2. Tab “Settings” and go to “Security” at the bottom.
  3. Activate “2-step verification”.

We recommend saving the backup code somewhere safe but not on your mobile phone.

You can always visit Uber Help Center via website. If you’re having trouble retrieving a lost item, please check the links below:
