    Verizon Plans to Track Your Mobile Information - 'Opt-Out' Option Available


    Big Red is sure starting to look more and more like "Big Brother." This latest report is that Verizon is planning on tracking the addresses of URLs you visit, the location of your device, apps that you have tried, and more. The only thing that makes this not quite as scary and irritating as it would be if we really lived in a "1984" dystopian future, is that VZW is giving us an Opt-Out option. Awww... how sweet of them.

    If you haven't received an email from Verizon about this, here is a link to the details and a link to the Opt-Out site: (The Opt-Out site will require you to log in. Also, In order to fully opt-out, make sure you opt-out in the first section then click save. After you let the page refresh, look at the bottom section to opt-out and click save again.)

    Thanks to Shadez for the tip!

    I thought legally companies had to set it up for you to opt-in, rather than default to that and force you to opt-out? At least, that's how the law should work.

    Just click on the opt out link in the article and scroll down after logging in and click the left side to not get info collected. You can choose all lines on the account and scroll down for another opt out section about banners.I just used it for my lines.

    Question is, is this grounds for getting out of your contract earlier.

    I doubt it. There's no change to the pricing/terms of your contract and you have the ability to opt-out.
