Verizon Wireless users, listen up:
This info includes the URLs of websites you visit over Verizon's network and also your device's location data. Some of those details may be shared with outside companies as well. Verizon says none of it will personally identify you.
If you don't want Verizon to use your data in this way, you need to go to verizonwireless.com/myprivacy and opt out. The page has two different places where you can check "Don't use my information" for any or all of your Verizon cell numbers.
By default, you will be opted in to this new program -- so if that isn't what you want, take a minute now and change those settings.
