How to change your phone number on Uber in 2 different ways

You can change your phone number on Uber by going into your app settings. You may be asked to verify your phone number by either entering a verification code (which you’d get via text) or by taking a screenshot of your number from within your phone’s settings.

Here’s what else you need to know about changing your phone number on the Uber app.

Getting a new phone number can be a great thing: It can help you leave behind those hated robocalls your old number used to get, make sure that only your friends and family can contact you directly and give you peace of mind. But it can also be a bit of a process to update all of your accounts.

If you’re tackling the Uber app, you can usually get it done rather easily by going into your settings. Just be aware that the process beyond that may vary slightly, but generally involves number verification.

Here’s how to change your phone number on Uber.

1. Open the Uber app and go into the main menu by tapping the three lines.

2. Select “Settings.”

3. Tap the section toward the top which includes your name, number and email address.

4. Tap your old phone number.

5. Enter your new phone number and tap “Save” on an Android or “Update phone number” on an iPhone.

After that, Uber may send you a verification code via text message. In that case, you’d simply enter your code when prompted. However, for some, the process is a little different and instead requires you to send Uber a screenshot of your new number from your phone.

1. Go into your phone settings.

2. Tap into the first section (you should see your name there).

3. Scroll down and then select the tab that either reads “(your name)’s iPhone” or “Name, Phone Numbers, Email.”

4. Take a screenshot, making sure it shows your number.

1. Go into your phone settings.

2. Scroll down and tap either “About phone” or “About device” you may see your phone number listed here, depending on the version of Android you have, in that case, simply take a screenshot from there, otherwise continue to the next step.

3. Take a screenshot by pressing the down volume key and the power key at the same time.
