You can always turn push notifications on or off. Just follow these steps:
- Tap “Settings” on your phone’s home screen
- Tap “Notifications”
- Find Uber in your list of apps
- Turn notifications on or off
- If on, choose the alert style you prefer
If push notifications are disabled, SMS messages will be sent instead. It should be noted that push notifications are more reliable than text and offer a superior experience.
Not all push notifications are created equal, so we have a few recommended settings from our savvy designers. For best push notification performance, we recommend setting the style to 'Alerts' and toggling all other push notification settings on, especially “Show on Lock Screen.”
