Verizon customers should opt out of its new data tracking program now

We’re all painfully aware of how much data the services that we use collect from us on a daily basis. Your email provider, phone carrier, ISP — they’re all collecting and selling your data. There’s not often much that we can do about it, but whenever there is, it’s never a bad idea to take action. For example, Verizon recently started sending emails out to customers about its new Custom Experience programs. These programs allow Verizon to track device location information, the numbers you call, and more. Even worse, Verizon is automatically enrolling customers into the tracking programs.

The good news is that opting out of the Verizon Custom Experience programs is relatively easy.

From here, you should see an option to opt in or out of Custom Experience and Custom Experience Plus. Just make sure to select “Don’t Use” for both programs. Unless, for some reason, you actually do want to stay enrolled.

As one user points out in a Reddit thread, you can also block future enrollment in the two programs. Select “Manage Settings” under either program and then click “Block Enrollment” wherever you see it. In theory, this will ensure Verizon doesn’t quietly add you back in at some point.
