Why do I need to verify my account using Facebook?

At Uber, we are committed to safety and are working to build a better experience for our customers. Driver-partners are responsible for getting their rider from A to B safely, and we want to make sure they have as much information as possible to ensure a safe ride.

You will need to confirm your identity by connecting your verified Facebook account or adding a verified form of a digital payment method.

When creating a new account using a Gift Card as the payment method, you will need to add a digital payment method (credit/debit card, PayPal, etc.) OR sign into Facebook via their Uber app.

Please follow the below steps to verify your account using Facebook:

1. Tap "Use Facebook"
2. Log into your Facebook account.
3. Tap "Edit This" to choose "Public Profile (required)" or "Friend List" and then tap "Continue" to complete the verification.

If you are an existing user and has Gift Card as a sole payment method, then you will have to verify your account by adding a digital payment method (credit card, PayPal, etc.) or sign into Facebook via your Uber app.

If you are an existing user and have taken trips previously using a digital payment method (credit/debit card, PayPal, etc.), then you do not need to verify by signing into your Facebook account.

If you do not own a Facebook account, then please create one or add a digital payment method (credit/debit card, PayPal, etc.) to proceed with the verification.
