How to sign up for an Uber account on both iPhone and Android


You can sign up for Uber to book rides to and from locations with ease through the mobile app. While you can skip payment options during sign up, you will have to add a payment option before booking an Uber ride.

It’s hard to believe that Uber was founded a decade ago this year. The transportation company, which launched in San Francisco in March 2009, has grown to become one of the most successful startups in history, boasting more than 75 million active users around the world.

Chances are, you’ve used Uber to get somewhere you needed to go before, but if you haven’t and are curious about it, the set-up process couldn’t be simpler.

It only takes a few minutes to sign up for Uber on your iPhone or Android, and once you have an account, you can begin booking rides immediately.

If you think you’d like to use the service for your next commute to work or on your way to the airport, here’s what you need to know to get started.
