Just Because you delete Uber from your phone doesn’t mean your account is deleted!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news


I always thought Uber had shitty business practices and thought the owner was a total fucking penis wrinkle. But now that a high ranking member of the organization remarked that they should start smear campaigns against the company’s critics, I’ve had enough. So I uninstalled the app and tweeted this. I also posted it to my Broke-Ass Stuart FB page.

Luckily one of my readers, Christine, hipped me to the fact that just because you uninstall it, doesn’t mean your account is deleted. This means that the very shady people at Uber still have access to all your information. And there is no way to actually delete your account on their app.  in fact it’s quite annoying and time consuming to get your account deleted (extra proof of shadiness!).

Thankfully Christine shared this link on How to Cancel an Uber Account from WikiHow. Now that you know how to do it. Go ask Uber to cancel your account.

And let me just unequivocally say “fuck these guys”
