Submission Verizon pays $7.4 million to settle FCC privacy investigation

The FCC discovered that Verizon failed to alert around two million customers of rights that include telling customers how to "opt out from having their personal information used." "In today's increasingly connected world, it is critical that every phone company honor its duty to inform customers of their privacy choices and then to respect those choices," Travis LeBlanc, Acting Chief of the FCC's Enforcement Bureau said.
