How Do I Change My Phone Number on Lyft?

Changing a phone number for a Lyft account is an easy process that can be done in only a minute or two. Open your Lyft account and access your settings menu by scrolling to the bottom of the main menu. Once you have located your settings menu, you will see a phone icon with your current phone number next to it. Update the settings with the phone number you would like to use. You will be sent a verification code by text to the new phone number, and once you have entered the code into your Lyft account, your phone number is now updated.

Changing the phone number of your Lyft account is an easy process that can be completed within only a few minutes.

Lyft is a ride-sharing platform that allows for a convenient transportation option that brings a driver to your location within minutes. If you have changed phone numbers or want to receive updates from another phone, updating your Lyft phone number is an easy task. In this guide, you will learn how to change your Lyft phone number on the Lyft app.

Changing a Phone Number on Lyft
