VZ Media explained

As mentioned before, VZ media is a division of Verizon Communication, The service has a unique way of grouping your photos, especially the multimedia from your messages, including SMS and MMS. All the photos saved under VZ media are saved in an album with the same name inside your phone’s gallery app. 

VZ Media is also one of the more unique services offered by a telecom carrier especially considering they provide encryption and automatic backup that can be restored to another device rather easily as all the data is stored in a cloud-based server. 

Since most ISPs and carriers presently do not support multimedia, let alone giving you a place to store it online and providing encryption, VZ Media turns out to be a rather significant differentiating factor when picking carriers. 

Last but not least, VZ Media is also rather well organised. Media files are organised based on their respective conversation’s date and time allowing users to quickly search for specific media files from their conversations. 

Opting out of VZ Media

If for whatever reason you don’t want to use Verizon’s media service, you can opt-out of it by using the privacy choice page on Verizon’s website. Alternatively, users can also call the 866-211-0874 toll-free number and opt out of the service. The number also helps you control how your information is used by the carrier for advertisements.
