How to Delete Your Uber Eats Account

Plus, how to reactivate it if you change your mind

Whether you’ve decided to cook more at home or have simply switched to an Uber Eats alternative such as Postmates or Deliveroo, the process to deactivate your Uber Eats account is fairly straightforward and only takes a few minutes.

How to Delete Uber Eats Account

While most people use the Uber Eats smartphone apps for placing orders, they unfortunately can’t be used to cancel or close an account. To delete an Uber Eats account, you’ll need to use the Uber Eats website via an internet web browser such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, or Brave.

  1. Open your preferred web browser on your computer, smartphone, or tablet and go to the official Uber Eats website.

What Happens When I Delete My Uber Eats Account?

Once you submit your Uber Eats account deletion request, your account will be deactivated and you’ll be logged out. Your data won’t be deleted for another 30 days, however, and in this time you can reactivate your account if you change your mind.

While most of your account data will be deleted from Uber’s servers after the 30 day period is up, the company will retain some unspecified information on your account usage.

Deleting your Uber account won’t remove records of your Uber trips or Uber Eats deliveries from Uber’s servers. One reason for this is that the drivers need this data as proof for their own activity.

How to Reactivate Your Uber Eats Account

If you change your mind about closing your Uber Eats account, you can reactivate it at any time within 30 days of when you began the deactivation process.

This can be done simply by going to the Uber Eats website or opening the Uber Eats app and logging in. Once you’ve logged in, nothing else needs to be done.

How to Contact Uber Eats

There are four main ways to get in touch with Uber support if you need help with your Uber Eats account or an order.

  • Uber Eats app: This is the best way to get support on specific order deliveries. Usually after an order has been delivered, the app will show you an option to give feedback or file a complaint.
  • Uber Support on Twitter: The official Uber Support Twitter account is one of the fastest ways to get a response. Simply @ mention the account in a tweet or send them a DM.
  • Uber Eats customer care phone number: You can call Uber Eats on (800) 253-6882 to speak to a person but wait times may be long and you’ll likely get a faster response on Twitter or via the in-app support form.
  • Uber Eats email support: You can email Uber Eats via eats@uber.com but getting a response may take a day or two and you may not get a reply at all. The above contact methods are well worth trying before sending an email.
