Phones, Keys, And Wallets Make The Top List In Uber’s Lost and Found Index 2022

Uber has released its Lost & Found Index 2022, outlining interesting and sometimes bizarre items people mostly forget across the country.

Uber is releasing its sixth annual Lost & Found index as the country begins to open and more people around the world safely resume their travels.

Uber’s annual Lost & Found Index provides a snapshot of riders’ most commonly forgotten items and most unique lost items as well as which cities have been most forgetful, which times of day and days of the week riders forget items most, and of course, tips on how to get your lost items back using the Uber app.

Phones, keys, wallets/purses made the usual list of items left by Uber riders. Other “unusual” items on the list included clothing, ice-cream, and a gas cylinder. Luggage bags, umbrellas, bottled water, and visa cards were among the most regularly forgotten items.

According to the Uber Lost & Found Index, Accra topped the list as the most forgetful city in Ghana. The Index also shows riders are most forgetful on Fridays and Saturdays.

How To Retrieve Lost Items From Uber

The best way to retrieve a lost item is to call the driver – but if you leave your phone itself in an Uber, you can login to your account on a computer. Here’s what to do:

  1. Tap “Your Trips” and select the trip where you left something
  2. Tap “I lost an item”
  3. Tap “Contact driver about a lost item”
  4. Scroll down and enter the phone number you would like to be contacted at. Tap submit.
  5. If you lost your personal phone, enter a friend’s phone number (you can do this by logging into your account on a computer, or using a friend’s phone).
  6. Your phone will ring and connect you directly with your driver’s mobile number.
  7. If your driver picks up and confirms that your item has been found, coordinate a mutually convenient time and place to meet for its return to you.
  8. If your driver doesn’t pick up, leave a detailed voicemail describing your item and the best way to contact you.
