Verizon Smart Family™ calls and texts (1:37)
Verizon Smart Family is your partner in parenting.
You can parent smarter in the digital age thanks to the ability to manage kids’ calls and texts with contacts you’re ok with.
With Verizon Smart Family, you can make sure your kids are texting and chatting safely with up to 20 trusted contacts.
These are people they’ll be able to get in touch with any time, regardless of other limits or restrictions you set.
They can include mobile or landline numbers, international numbers or your own number to access voicemail.
Quickly see who’s who by syncing Smart Family with you and your child’s contacts. If a number is in both devices, it shows up how you have it saved.
If it’s only on your child’s, you’ll notice a child address book icon next to it.
Want to know who they’re talking with most? It’s easy to see their top contacts and ones they’ve chatted with recently.
Create healthy phone habits by limiting their texts, calls and data. Set activity limits during school and night hours or put a cap on monthly texts and calls.
Rest assured, your child can always communicate with trusted contacts and make emergency 911 calls no matter what.
Stay completely up to date with customizable alerts when there’s activity outside the limits you set, an emergency number is dialed and more.
You can even keep a closer eye on specific numbers by adding them to a watchlist. You’ll get a notification if your child calls or texts with them.
For a little extra peace of mind, you can also block up to 20 numbers, including all incoming Private, Restricted and Unavailable numbers.
