Buried in their email about Terms and Services is this gem:
3. Home Router Password Changes. Section 10.4 was updated to clarify that Verizon may in limited instances modify administrative passwords for home routers in order to safeguard Internet security and our network, the security and privacy of subscriber information, to comply with the law, and/or to provide, upgrade and maintain service. The administrative password for your home router is used to access the “administrative” controls for the router and to make changes to your router’s internal settings. We will use reasonable means to notify Subscribers whose home router administrative passwords are changed, which may include email notice to your Primary Email Address and/or an announcement on the My Verizon portal.
The funniest part of this update is that the email to their customers started with:
Verizon, how is it good news that you just changed the terms of my service to give you complete access to my home network without my permission. Ironically, another part of this same Verizon Terms change notifies the customers of a toll free number that was set up for the purpose of "Reporting Security Incidents Involving Lost or Stolen Login Credentials". - Well we are probably going to need that now that Verizon remote technicians now have the right to change my credentials at will.
Another joke is that they will notify us of any changes via the myverizon portal. That is the same myverizon portal that is broken over 50% of the time that I try to access it.
Verizon, get your self together, you are rapidly losing faith from your customers.
I wish Aircards and their monthly service were not expensive, and that 4G would get here quicker, without badwidth limits or caps!
