    It just asked me to scan my debit card and then enter expiry dates/CVV as well.

    I probably won't use UBER, I am just checking it out. Should I continue?

    Absolutely safe. Uber is brilliant. Moved this to a more appropriate section for you.

    Is it possible to be billed without actually requesting a ride?

    I was messing around with the app, but it seems like once you pinpoint a pick up location a driver will go there for you. :eek:

    Unless you press the "request" button, no process will be started.

    OK, but to be on the safe side, I might delete my card from UBER - but it says it needs a card on my account.

    Should I just change a few digits of the card number so I never get billed anyway?

    Is it possible to delete an UBER account AND the card details?

    I'm pretty sure you can link Paypal if you're that concerned, however it's totally safe (apart from any drunk mishaps like my friend)

    Pretty sure an invalid card number would fail, and what's the point as then you'd not be able to use the app?

    It can all be deleted with a simple request to their support team.
