Verizon Perma Cookie Opt Out Possibility Available to iPhone Users

A lot of users were frustrated to learn that their U.S. carrier, AT&T or Verizon, used perma cookies to track subscriber’s web activity [this made a lot of customers decide to unlock Verizon iPhone by IMEI and choose a different network]. The backlash was so impressive that AT&T quickly stopped using this option while Verizon perma cookies were still tracking visitors of their sites. Finally, in 2015, this American mobile operator also brings some changes to its policy.

AT&T no longer uses identifier codes but the Big Red network kept doing it calling it not tracking but relevant advertising. It was able to add special identifiers into URLs of users who visited the carrier’s websites and this way the company could track web activity even beyond its sites allowing advertisers to access user’s information later on.



Verizon perma cookie opt out option is now available to all customers. Now, after two long years of permanent tracking the carrier finally allows users opting out of its perma-cookies tracking. Such a confirmation comes directly from Verizon Wireless. According to its spokeswoman Debra Lewis, the mobile operator pays attention to user’s privacy.

At the same time, the U.S. company continues to grow its advertising business. Lewis also notes that it never shared personal information of its subscribers [that identified iPhone owners and other users as part of Verizon ads programs] with any third party.
