AppFlash℠ FAQs

General Information

  1. What is AppFlash?

    AppFlash is a content discovery service, which uses the power of your smartphone to make your life easier by giving you app, movie, music, and restaurant recommendations all in one place.

    Let’s say you've heard about a movie from some friends but don't know where it's playing. AppFlash shows you apps where you can stream it. If it's still in theaters, AppFlash recommends apps where you can buy tickets. Want to see the trailer, read the reviews or get a ride to the theater? AppFlash shows you these apps too.

    Don't have the app installed? AppFlash has an app streaming capability that lets you use some apps without the hassle of downloading or installing them on your device.

  6. Why should I allow AppFlash to use my location services?

    AppFlash uses your device location to enhance your AppFlash experience and provide more customized app, movie, music, restaurant and other recommendations, and will help make ads you see more relevant. In newer versions of AppFlash, Verizon also requests your permission to use location collected from AppFlash and other apps to develop new location-based features and services.

    The AppFlash Privacy Policy has more on how this information is used and your choices.

  7. What types of location information are collected?

    When you allow it, we collect cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth®, GPS and sensor (gyroscope, accelerometer, light, magnetometer and pressure) information.

  8. How do I provide permission for Verizon to collect location data or change my mind about collection of this information?

    You provide permission when prompted in the app. If you decide that you don't want location information collected and used by the app and for other purposes, you can still use AppFlash but your recommendations and experiences will no longer be relevant to your location.

    You can change your choice at any time through your device settings (may vary slightly by device).

    1. Tap Settings
    2. Tap Application Manager
    3. Tap AppFlash
    4. Turn location permissions off or on
  9. Is location information collected even when I'm not using the app?

    In newer versions of the app, when you choose to enable location, it will be collected even when the app is not in use.

  10. Do you share my location data with third parties for their own purposes?

    No, not in a way that identifies individual users. Verizon may share certain de-identified location information with third parties for limited aggregate purposes, such as traffic reporting. We do not sell, rent or share precise location data that identifies you with others for their own purposes.
