Texting from verizon app using your child numbers

Is there a way for a parent to send a text from their child's number?  The text looks like it came from the kid but was actually sent by a parent using a verizon app.

 

Thanks

Are you talking about SMS spoofing? Yes it happens. Just another way people get into our lives.

How do you know it was sent by a parent and what was the Verizon app used?

Good evening, Lauram321! I would be concerned as well wondering the origin of a suspicious text. Can you please provide more details on this text message you received? Was there something specific about the text you received that leads you to believe it was sent by using an app? Was it sent from an unknown number? Please provide more details so that we can better assist.
