Verizon iPhone Owners Must Opt-Out of Sharing Data With Advertisers

Another one from Matthew Panzarino:

The opt-out options are only available for 30 days after you’ve fired up a new line and they’re located in the MyPrivacy section of Verizon’s website. There are three categories of opt-out, each of which covers the sharing of a different flavor of personal information.

And they’re not just for iPhone owners, any smartphone purchaser is likely going to need to check out these privacy settings if they want to make sure they’re only sharing what they wish. I’m an iPhone owner, so could only confirm that it was there for me, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t be for other devices as well.

Hard to disagree with Ben Brooks on this.
