How to use the My Verizon app for prepaid

This guide provides instructions for how to manage your prepaid account using the new My Verizon app on your smartphone.

Note: If you still have the old version of the app, you can find instructions for using it in our My Verizon app for prepaid FAQs.

Select a topic below to view steps:

Getting Started

    The My Verizon app is already installed on most prepaid devices. If you don't see My Verizon in your Apps menu:

    1. Open the app store on your device (e.g., Google Play™ Store, Apple® App Store®).
    2. Search for "My Verizon".
    3. Tap My Verizon in the search results and follow the onscreen prompts to download the app.
    4. Once the download is complete, open the My Verizon app.
    5. Enter your prepaid mobile number and tap Next.

      Note: If you haven't registered for My Verizon, tap Signup, and follow the steps for registering.

      Image: Get the My Verizon app for prepaid screenshot
    6. Enter your My Verizon Password and tap Sign In.

      Note: If you tap Remember me, you won't be prompted to enter your number and password every time you open the app on your device.

      Image: Get the My Verizon app for prepaid screenshot
    7. If prompted, read the Terms & Conditions. If you agree, tap Accept terms.

    You've successfully downloaded and opened the My Verizon app for prepaid. You'll see your account feed on the home screen.



    If you've never used My Verizon before (through the app or a web browser), you need to register your prepaid account to use it. This is a one-time process that sets up your User ID and Password. You can then use those same credentials to sign in to My Verizon through the app or any web browser.

    To register:

    1. Open the My Verizon app on your device.
    2. Enter your prepaid mobile number and tap Sign up.
    3. Enter your 4-digit Account PIN.

      Note: If you've forgotten your Account PIN, tap Forgot, and you can have a temporary PIN sent to your phone by text message. Enter the temporary PIN, and you'll be prompted to create a new Account PIN to use in the future.
    4. Enter the requested information to create your profile:
      • User ID - Create a new User ID that's at least 6 characters long. It can have letters and numbers, but no spaces. You can use it to sign in to My Verizon in the future.
      • Greeting name - This is the name you want to appear on the Welcome screen of the app.
      • Email address - Enter a valid email address where you can receive important notifications about your Verizon account.
    5. Read the Terms & Conditions, and if you agree, tap I agree to the terms and conditions.
    6. Tap Next.
    7. You'll receive a text message on your prepaid phone that includes a temporary password. Enter that temporary password on the Sign in screen of the app.

      Note: If you tap Remember Me, you won't be prompted to enter your number and password every time you open the app on your device.
    8. Tap Sign in.
    9. Enter a new password to use to sign in to My Verizon in the future. It must meet these requirements:
      • Can have uppercase and lowercase letters (it's case-sensitive)
      • Must be 8-20 characters
      • Must have at least 1 letter and 1 number
      • Can include common special characters (e.g., !, &, $, #, etc.)
      • Can't contain spaces
      • Can't match your User ID
    10. Enter the same password again to confirm it and tap Next.
    11. Select a security question from the dropdown.
    12. Enter the answer, which can include letters, numbers, spaces and periods.
    13. Select whether or not you want to turn on Touch ID, which uses your fingerprint instead of a password to confirm your identity.
      • If you want to use it, read and tap I accept the Terms and Conditions. Then tap Turn on and follow the onscreen prompts.
      • If you don't want to use it, tap Not now. You can turn it on later if you like.

    You've successfully registered for My Verizon. You'll see your account feed on the home screen.

    If you ever need to, you can sign in to My Verizon through the web browser on any device. Just go to VerizonWireless.com/MyVerizon and enter your User ID and Password.



    Keeping your app updated helps ensure you're accessing the latest account management and security features.

    You should receive a notification from the app store on your device when your My Verizon app has an update available. You can tap on that notification and follow the onscreen prompts to update the app.

    Or to manually check for an update:

    1. Open the app store on your device (e.g., Google Play™ Store, Apple® App Store®).
    2. Search for "My Verizon" and tap My Verizon in the search results.
    3. Tap UPDATE if the option is available.

      Note: If you see OPEN instead of UPDATE, there aren't any updates available for your app at this time.
    4. Once the new version has been downloaded to your device, open the My Verizon app.
    5. Enter your prepaid mobile number and tap Next.

    You can choose how you want to receive notifications about special deals and promos:

    Note: You'll still receive important notifications regarding your account and service, even if you opt out of these deals and promo notifications.

    1. In the My Verizon app, tap the Menu icon.
    2. Tap Account.
    3. If you have multiple lines on your account, select the line you want to change notifications for.
    4. Tap Preferences.
    5. Tap the Email switch to turn email notifications on and off.
    6. Note: When the switch is green, you'll receive notifications by email.

    7. Select how you want to receive notifications on your phone:

      Note: None of these options count towards your messaging allowance.

      • Text messages: These will appear in your messaging app, just like a message you’d receive from a friend or family member.
      • Push notifications: These will appear as a pop-up notification on your screen, not in your messaging app.
      • I don't want mobile notifications – You won’t receive notifications on your phone.
    8. Tap Update.

    You've successfully changed your notification settings.



    If you need to temporarily suspend your service (e.g., your device is lost or stolen), you can do so to prevent unauthorized charges. This isn't the same as permanently canceling your service.

    • Single line prepaid accounts: Your account will still be billed while suspended, if your account has available funds.
    • Prepaid Family Accounts: If you suspend the Account Owner's line, you'll still be billed for the line while it's suspended. If you suspend an Account Member's line, you won't be billed for that line on your renewal date while it's suspended.

    Note: If you have recurring features on your line, turn them off before suspending service to avoid being charged for them.

    Learn more about suspending service

    To suspend service using your mobile device:

    Note: If you don't have your mobile device, refer to our steps for Suspending Service through a web browser.

    1. In the My Verizon app, tap the Menu icon.
    2. Tap Account.

      Note: If you're the Account Owner of a Prepaid Family Account, you'll need to also select the line you want to suspend.

    3. Tap Account Settings.
    4. Tap Suspend Service.
    5. Tap Suspend.

      Note: If you're the Account Owner on a Prepaid Family Account and suspending your own device, select whether or not you want to transfer account ownership to another line to avoid paying for your line while it’s suspended. Follow the steps to Change Account Owner and transfer funds if desired.

    6. Tap Confirm.

    You've successfully suspended your service through the My Verizon app. If you recover your device or have a replacement device, you can reconnect service anytime.

    Note: If your line is suspended for more than 90 days, your number will be disabled. If you have a single line account, your account will be closed.



    If you suspended your service because your device was lost or stolen, you can reconnect through My Verizon. It may take up to 60 minutes to completely reconnect your service once you finish the steps below.

    Note: If you're an Account Member on a Prepaid Family Account, you can reconnect your own line through a web browser if you suspended it during the current bill cycle. If you suspended your device during a previous bill cycle, the Account Owner will need to reconnect service for you.

    • If you're reconnecting with a replacement device: Follow the steps to reconnect service through a web browser. You can use the web browser on any mobile device or computer.

    • If you found the device you lost:
      1. Open the My Verizon app on your device.

      2. Tap Reconnect Service in the Suspended Service section of your feed.

      3. Tap Reconnect.

    Note: You may be prompted to add funds to your account if you're reconnecting service during a different bill cycle. This is because you didn't pay for your service on your renewal date. You may not need to pay your standard full renewal amount, depending on how many days are left in your bill cycle. Follow the onscreen prompts to add funds and reconnect your service.

    You've successfully reconnected your service on your original device.
