If you request to delete your Lyft data, we will delete your account and information to the extent required by applicable law.
A request to delete your Lyft account will apply to both your rider and driver accounts. There isn’t a way to request only partial deletion of your account or data. There also isn't a way to undo an account deletion request once completed.
We aim to respond within 45 days of receiving your request. If we need more time, we’ll inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.
In some cases, we will be unable to delete your account. This may apply if there is an issue with your account related to trust, safety, or fraud.
Lyft operates its service only in the US and Canada. Lyft accounts and ride information are not covered by the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
You can request a copy of your Lyft data (which includes information like your ride history). Download your account data before deleting your account. This data is not available after an account deletion.
