Regularly updating your Uber password is part of keeping your information safe. Learn how to change Uber password in a couple of easy steps!

Key Takeaways

How To Change Your Uber Password As a Rider

Accessing Your Account

First, you’ll need to log into your Uber account by doing the following:

  1. Open the Uber App: Start by opening the Uber app. If you’re not logged in already, you’ll need to enter your phone number or email and password. Alternatively, you can sign in through Uber’s website.
  2. Go to the Menu: Next, locate the menu by clicking the hamburger menu icon (three horizontal lines) on the top left of the application.

Navigating to Settings

After accessing your account, you’ll need to navigate to the settings. There, you’ll be able to manage your account and Uber profile.

  1. Select Settings: In the menu, scroll down to find the ‘Settings’ option and click on it.

Changing Your Password

After accessing settings, you can easily change your password through the following steps:

  1. Account and Security: In the settings menu, you should be able to find options related to your account, including display name, phone number, email, and password.
  2. Change Password: Choose the password option to enter your new password. In some versions of the app, you’ll be able to change the Uber password only by clicking ‘Forgot Password’.
  3. Enter Old Password: After clicking on ‘Password’, you might be prompted to enter your current password. If you can’t remember it, click ‘Forgot Password’ instead.
  4. Type New Password: Next, it’s time to choose your new password. You can either let your phone generate a strong password, or pick a password that’s easy to remember. Either way, Uber recommends typing a password that’s a mix of capital letters, symbols, and numbers.
  5. Confirm New Password: To ensure that you haven’t misspelled your new password, you’ll need to re-enter it.
  6. Save Changes: Uber values your safety above all else. That’s why any account changes aren’t saved until confirming your identity. After clicking save changes, Uber will send a verification code to your phone number or email address. Enter the code in the Uber app to complete the password change.

How to Change Your Uber Password (Driver App)

The process to change your Uber password in the driver app is similar to the rider app. However, the interface might slightly differ.

Follow the steps accordingly, ensuring you navigate through the driver app’s menu to locate the password change option.

How to Change Your Uber Password (Uber Website)

If you’ve forgotten your password, go to Uber’s password reset page on the Uber website, enter the email associated with your account, and follow the password reset link sent to your email.

If are still having issues, contact an Uber support team member for further assistance.

Note:

When resetting your password, you might find yourself needing to enter an Uber verification code.

This is called 2 Factor Authentication, and is a great way to make sure somebody else doesn’t have access to your account.

Additional Tips and Considerations

Carefully choosing your Uber password is essential for your data and financial safety. After all, your Uber account has your location, credit card information, and phone number.

Password Strength

Here are some tips for selecting the proper password:

When picking a password for any account, it’s crucial to make it strong enough. This includes using a combination of capital letters, numbers, and symbols. You must also avoid using common phrases or information about yourself that others might easily guess.

Password managers are an exceptional option for generating strong passwords. Most devices have an integrated password manager, making things much simpler.

Logging Out on Other Devices

After changing your password, you should log out and log back in on all devices. This way, you ensure that no one can access your Uber account from other devices.

Account Recovery

If you forgot your Uber password, there’s no need to worry. You can click on ‘Forgot Password’ from the login screen. You must have access to your email or phone number, though, as a verification code will be sent to them.

Alternatively, you can contact Uber Support to recover your account if you no longer use the same email or phone number.

Regular Updates

By changing your password every few months, you limit unauthorized access to your account. That’s because you might not be aware of a data leak or a compromised password.

You must also follow best password practices, such as not using the same password for more than one account, writing down your password, and keeping your information private.

Two-Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security to your account. Instead of just using your password to access your account, you’ll have to enter a verification code as well.

To turn on two-step verification, you should access Settings > Security > 2-Step verification.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does changing the Uber password log every session out?

Yes. If you have connected your Uber account to multiple devices, changing the password will automatically log out of all of them.

This keeps unauthorized access at bay and removes any control that hackers might have on your account.

Can I delete and restart my Uber account?

You may delete your Uber account and start fresh after 30 days. Deleting your account will remove all your data, information, and promotions.

Uber will verify your identity through a verification code sent to your email or phone number. If you change your mind, you can log back into your account after 30 days.

Final Thoughts

Learning how to change your Uber password is crucial to maintaining your security.

You might think Uber isn’t an attractive platform for hackers, but it has all your personal information, including your credit cards, current and previous location, and phone number.

The process takes minutes, and you can do it either through the Uber app or website. After changing the password, you’ll be logged out of all devices.

This small method makes a significant impact on maintaining your safety. To make things easier, you can also use a password manager to choose and store your strong passwords.
