The data download tool is designed to provide a copy of certain types of your data that is required to be provided to Europe-based users under EU law. The tool does not include every type of data, such as data that is not associated with EU users.
You can make a request through Yelp’s data download tool as described below:
Desktop: Go to your Privacy Settings and click on the link to Download a copy of your Yelp data in the upper right corner of the page.
Mobile: Go to m.yelp.ie on your mobile browser, tap on “Request Desktop Site” from the share button (iPhone) or the overflow button (Android). Next, go to your Privacy Settings and tap on the Download a copy of your Yelp data link in the upper right corner of the page.
After you make a request, you will receive an email containing a link to initiate the data download, which will be sent to the primary email address associated with your account. It may take a few days after you make your request for Yelp to send you the email containing the download link. In an effort to protect the data’s security, the link will expire after four days. If the link to access your data expires before you’ve downloaded your data, you will need to make a new request through the data download tool.
As noted above, you can also access some of this same data through your Yelp account by going to About Me. There, you can see your Profile Overview, Friends, Reviews, and other account information that you have provided.
NOTE: Your Yelp data may contain personal information - please make sure that you keep it secure and be mindful of where and how you share that information with others.
