Hey Syed, thanks for the question.

If you’re looking to delete your Lyft account, it’s a pretty simple process, and there’s two ways you can go about doing it.

Delete Lyft account – Keep data

If you want to delete your Lyft account from your phone, simply delete the app off your device.

Lyft will store your data on it’s servers still, you just won’t be able to open the app from your phone.

When you’re ready to start riding again, simply download the app, sign in with your account credentials, then take a ride.

However, if you’re looking to close your account and wipe your data entirely, then deleting everything is the other option.

Delete Lyft account – delete all data

If you want to delete your Lyft account and get rid of all the data it was storing, you’ll need some help from Lyft support.

Lyft will be able to deactivate your account, but may keep some of the info outlined in the Lyft Privacy Policy. I’m not sure what data they keep, but you can ask a support representative and they should be able to tell you.

The process of deactivating your account is simple, according to Lyft. To do so,

To deactivate your Lyft account, tap ‘Contact Support’ and let us know why you’re leaving. Please include details letting us know why you want your account deactivated.

Hopefully this helps. If you need help along the way, don’t hesitate to reply to this thread.
