I received the given text today (See Screenshot). However, I have not booked any uber. To check if anyone hacked into my account and  took a ride, I checked past rides in Uber app but still found no recent unusual ride. The message tells user that if he/she wants to stop, he/she needs to sms STOP to this private number. I think this is some kind of scam text made to fool people who will sms STOP hurriedly hoping to stop someone misusing their app (However I am not sure still). Maybe smsing STOP will trigger some script that give this number access to some account. Beware guys! What do you think?

No, just messaging STOP won’t trigger anything.

Yes maybe. But still, I won’t take any risk? Moreover why they are asking to unsubscribe. Is this a subscription to get uber codes?

This Is Genuine Msg. This Is For OTP. Someone Might Be Trying To Enter Into Your Account Or Might Have Entered Wrong While Log In Which Sent This Msg To You.
Nothing To Worry. You’re Safe. Your Account Is Safe.
