    Basically, there aren't any automated ways to delete a user's Uber account, instead there's a manual process users have to follow. Well, users needed to visit the Uber support site to create a request then fill in the email address associated with their account with the subject line "Close my Uber account."

    And in the description, users needed to ask for the company to close their account while clearly mentioning their names and mobile phone numbers that are associated with the account. Further users needed to select the home city they are registered for Uber in.

    So it is basically a time-consuming process. However, this report does bring some good news for the users.
