I can’t access My Verizon Web site Features
From the My Verizon Web site, you can pay your bill online, access your Verizon Online Email, add or change your Verizon Internet services and more. If you are a new customer and are having issue accessing My Verizon features, you might be a "limited access" customer and need to verify your account before you have full access to all My Verizon features.
By default, all new Verizon Online customers with a phone service (FiOS Digital Voice, Standard Landline Plan, or Verizon Wireless) have “limited access” to My Verizon features. Note: If you only have Verizon Online Internet service and/or FiOS TV service only (without landline or wireless phone service) you automatically have full-access to My Verizon features.
According to an FCC mandate, Verizon requires all new customers to authenticate their My Verizon account by entering a temporary PIN. The temporary PIN lets us know that your account belongs to you. After you enter the temporary PIN, you’ll have “full-access” to all My Verizon features.
How do I know if I have a “limited access” My Verizon account?
When you login to My Verizon, you’ll see a PIN Request page. By default, all new Verizon Online customers with a phone service (FiOS Digital Voice, Standard Landline Plan, or Verizon Wireless) have “limited access” to My Verizon features, including View Bill and Change Internet Services link.
