Verizon Wireless introduced a new feature today available for its postpaid subscribers. The new feature is a VPN called Safe Wi-Fi. It can be used to hide your IP address and protect your privacy while you are browsing on a public network. It will cost subscribers $3.99/month. The carrier also recently introduced a new promotion for its prepaid subscribers. Customers can now get 4 lines of unlimited everything with the first 3GB of data at 4G LTE speeds for $100. I believe the promotion actually came out just a few days ago and replaces Verizon's Double Data For Life promo.
More About Safe Wi-Fi VPN
The Safe Wi-Fi VPN is available as a downloadable app in the Google Play Store and iOS App Store. At the moment it comes with a 1 month free trial promotion. It can also be enabled online through your My Verizon account. The Safe Wi-Fi VPN can be found under the Products & Apps heading in your account dashboard.
The service can be used on up to 10 devices for just $3.99/month. Besides securing your privacy while on a public network, the VPN will also stop ad networks from tracking you.

Verizon's New Prepaid Plan Promo
Verizon's new prepaid promo is being marketed as 4 lines for $100 when all lines are on the $40 plan. The $40 plan includes unlimited everything with the first 3GB of data at 4G LTE data speeds. If that's not enough data for each family member, Verizon is offering an extra $30 off the price of the 4th line when you mix and match plans. Verizon already discounts multi-line accounts, so the $30 discount is in addition to those discounts.
Verizon Prepaid Limited Time Multi-Line Discount Plan Examples
Some good mix and match prepaid promotional plan options that include the extra $30 discount on line 4 are as follows:
- 4 lines with 7GB of LTE data each line for $125. Includes carryover data with on time payments.
- 4 lines with 10GB of LTE data each line for $150, plus unlimited Mexico and Canada calling. Includes carryover data with on time payments.
- 4 lines with unlimited LTE data for $210, plus unlimited Mexico and Canada calling
All plans include unlimited talk and text, international texting to over 200 countries and mobile hotspot. Mobile hotspot on the unlimited plan is limited to data speeds of 600Kbps.
This limited time promotion will be available until 10/31/18. For all promotional rates, taxes and fees cost extra.
