Using Google TalkBack to create an account or log back in
The Lyft app is fully compatible with Google TalkBack.
This guide shows how to create a Lyft account using TalkBack. It also explains how to sign in to an existing account, or recover your account login information. If you're looking for help requesting a ride, read our article Using Google TalkBack to request a ride.
After entering your phone number, we will send you a text message that has a numerical code.
Enter this code in the 'What's the code?' screen. The number pad will be open and active at the bottom of the screen.
When you receive the text, Android will offer a typing suggestion at the top of the number pad that will contain the Lyft verification code.
Double-tap the suggestion to enter the verification code or type the code in manually. Once verification completes, you will advance to the next screen.
If you didn't receive your code, return to the phone number screen and make sure your number is correct. To get a new code, swipe right from the 'Enter the code' text until you get to the 'Resend code' button.
Double-tap 'Resend code' to go to a TalkBack to a heading that says 'Resend verification code.' Swipe right and you'll find the phone number where we're sending the code. Under the phone number, you can choose to have the code sent via text, or through a phone call. You can dismiss this screen to return to the 'Verification code' screen.
If you enter the wrong code, you'll hear an error. You won't need to delete anything, just enter the number again.
