Verizon wants to keep track of your web habits and more, although you can opt-out
Thankfully, there is a way to opt-out of this information gathering. By heading over to VerizonWireless.com/myprivacy, Big Red customers will find two locations where they can check "Don't use my information" for each Verizon cell phone number they have. Unless this is done, Verizon customers are automatically opted into the new program, which is something that might raise the hackles of many smartphone users who believe that the carrier's default positions should be to not gather customer's information for profit.
