Using an out of date browser puts your personal and network information at risk of falling into the wrong hands. Updated browsers on your computer or tablet will help us keep you protected.
We detected that you are using an outdated browser that does not meet current industry security standards for protecting web access to consumer payment, network and personal information. You must update your outdated browser by January 2018 to continue to access your account information. This is a change adopted by websites, financial institutions, and the wireless industry as a whole to increase security during the online experience.
Customers on non-mobile devices like laptops or PCs not on the most current Internet web browser version are impacted. Outdated web browsers will display a warning message at the top of your screen when visiting Verizon websites.
Even if your smartphone or devices are not listed above, it is highly recommended that you perform a software update to the most current version to optimize device performance, apply the latest security patches, and resolve known issues.
