Privacy Policy

Changes to Privacy Policy

As Verizon develops new products and services, deploys new technologies and develops new uses of information, we review and update our privacy policy to reflect these changes. In addition, from time to time we make organizational, stylistic and grammatical changes to present our practices in a way that makes our policy easy to read. The information provided below highlights changes to our Privacy Policy that have been made in the past six months.

June 2017

We updated the privacy policy to include Verizon’s recent acquisition of Yahoo and the combination of Yahoo and AOL to form a new company called Oath.  Oath consists of over 50 digital and mobile media brands globally.  The changes describe how the Verizon, Oath, and Yahoo privacy policies apply.  Additional changes were made to update, delete, and clarify language.  For example, we removed extraneous language that stated Verizon is not responsible for services and apps provided by others or content on sites to which our site may link. 

May 2017

We introduced a supplemental privacy page for the new Verizon Home application.

March 2017

We introduced a supplemental privacy page for Hum services that covers the in-vehicle Hum services (previously found in the full privacy policy) as well as new features of the Hum app.  We also added a supplemental privacy policy for the new Appflash application.   

February 2017

We updated the privacy policy to add XO Communications and MapQuest to the Verizon family of companies covered by the policy. We included information about additional privacy practices specific to MapQuest. We also updated the VZ Messages app privacy policy, including changing its name to Message+ and describing a new public profile feature present in the app.
