Verizon will share your private data unless you opt-out

What sigh of relief that big corporations are really looking out for the little guy. Most recently, this sentiment comes in the form of being able to opt out of Verizon’s plans to share all your carrier-related data with its affiliates and agents. Wow, thanks Big Red! Verizon is sending out letters that give its customers 45 days upon receipt of said letter to opt out of the information sharing plan – so pay close attention to your mail! Or, if you are going paperless, like many eco-friendly folks, you ought to check the Verizon site. Oh, but wait, there’s a catch. It appears as though the details are not delineated online as the CPNIN option is currently “Not Available.” If you have trouble getting the information, you might want to call Verizon Wireless and tell all your friends and family, too – unless you really don’t care. After all, it’s only your billing info, technical info, location info and service purchases that are going to be exposed here.
