Uber Eats launched in the last week a series of measures to prevent contamination by Covid-19, a disease caused by the new coronavirus. Among the novelties is the option "Delivery at the Door", so that users can request the "contactless delivery" modality to avoid interactions with couriers. Available from the order page of the application for iPhone (iOS) and Android, the ideal resource to avoid close contact during the quarantine period.
To test the feature, the TechTudo used an iPhone XR, but the tutorial steps also work for smartphones with Android system. In the following lines, check out how to choose non-physical delivery on Uber Eats. It is worth remembering that the user must indicate, by message on the app, to the delivery person where he wants the food to be left: at his door, inside the elevator, at the building entrance or at another location. Online payment is also preferred to avoid card machines.
