Verizon's New Privacy Terms Allow Them to Monitor Your Web Habits

Are you a Verizon customer? Do you use Internet on your smartphone? If so, you may want to take a close look at a recent change in Verizon's privacy terms and conditions. Starting this week, Big Red will be sharing URLs visited and location data with outside companies.

The company says the information provided will be anonymous and will be used primarily to bring more relevant advertising to your phone and create interesting in-house infographics (such as "how many people visit weather.com on their way to work") but we're guessing many folks won't be so happy about these changes.

If you don't want to share your personal web habits with Verizon and their collaborators, you still have the opportunity to opt out by visiting the privacy policy page on your Verizon account. There, you'll find two different buttons which read " Don't use my information." Click them, and save yourself a bit of privacy.
