Login Issues

The OTP never came. Please help!

Did you check the email ID you have registered on the Uber with? If you do not see our email, then please also check your mobile for an SMS from us. It could be that you have used a different email and mobile number combination to register on Uber. Paytm will send the OTP to the email or mobile number registered on Paytm.

I checked both my email & SMS, but the OTP still did not come. Now what?

I am confused about the phone number & email address. Help!

Paytm Account holders using the same mobile number & email ID combination on Uber, will get this OTP on both email & mobile. But if the email-mobile combination is not the same, the OTP will go to the email or mobile – whichever is registered on Paytm.

If you do not have a Paytm Account, do not worry, you can register through Uber App and you will get OTP on both your email ID & mobile number. You can use any of those two OTPs to link your Paytm Wallet to Uber App.
