Check out a step by step how to recover a lost cell phone on Uber

THE Uber sent a statement explaining how you can recover your lost smartphone, considering that during the carnival season there is a significant increase in the number of people who accidentally leave their mobile device inside the car.

There are two ways to recover your smartphone from a Uber: the first using another smartphone with the application, or also accessing the website uber.com/ajuda.

Recovering your lost cell phone on Uber

To retrieve the cell phone, the first thing to be done is to alert the driver so that he can find the object inside the vehicle. Soon after, the driver and the passenger combine the best time and place to return the object.

When accessing the website or the application of another cell phone, the user must log in with the password. The passenger pays a return fee that will be passed on to the driver due to expenses related to travel to the object.
