    Safety Mode lets you keep using data at reduced speeds after your data allowance is used up for the month. You'll be able to stay online without worrying about overage fees.

    Safety Mode is included on the Verizon Plan and new Verizon plan shared data plans (e.g., S,M,L). You need to enable it in the My Verizon app or My Verizon to start using it.

  9. How does the My Verizon app help keep my identity and account protected when visiting a Verizon retail store?

    To help keep your identity safe when you visit a Verizon store, The My Verizon app offers an extra layer of protection to your account with a two-step authentication process. It is easy to use and eliminates additional PINs, passwords, or one-time passcodes.

    When you visit a Verizon store:

    1. Verify your identity with a government-issued photo ID like your driver's license.
    2. The Verizon store rep will then send you a push notification to the My Verizon app on your device to confirm your identity. All you have to do is click the push notification and confirm the request. Before visiting a Verizon store make sure the latest version of the My Verizon app is installed on your device and push notifications are enabled.

    These extra steps help prevent fraudsters from impersonating you in the store, potentially with a stolen or fake photo ID, to access your Verizon account. To learn more about different types of fraud to watch out for and what you can do to keep your Verizon account secure visit the Verizon Account Security page.

  10. How do I enable push notifications in the My Verizon app?

    With the My Verizon app you can turn on push notifications to receive alerts about changes to your account related to billing, payments and/or usage.

    Note: In order to receive push notifications when authenticating in a retail store you'll need to turn on push notifications for the My Verizon app in your device's Apps settings menu (not in the My Verizon app). This setting is turned on by default for Android devices for the My Verizon app.

    If you have iPhone, you will be asked to opt into app notifications during My Verizon app set up. If you didn't opt it or you opted out later you will need to opt in via your device’s app settings and permissions page.

    This is different from device to device but generally speaking go to your device's settings page, find application and notifications, then find the My Verizon app. You should be able to turn on "all notifications" here. Turning this on will not impact specific types of notifications like billing alerts, just that you opt in to receive any notifications from the My Verizon app.

    To turn on push notifications in the My Verizon app:

    1. Tap Menu.
    2. Tap Account.
    3. Tap Preferences.
    4. Select which line you want to update.
