Yelp’s data download tool allows you to obtain a snapshot of your Yelp information, including your contributions like reviews and photos. The specific information you will receive through the data download tool will vary based on your interactions with Yelp to date.
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. You may be required to re-enter your password for security reasons.
Mobile: Go to m.yelp.com on your mobile browser, tap or select “Request Desktop Site” from the AA icon at the top left corner of the URL (iOS 13), share button (iOS 12 and under) 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. You may be required to re-enter your password for security reasons.
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. From 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.
