***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
My full name shows up on post in this forum

I have read the legacy info on this subject, but do not understand it. On my profile, I have chosen a screen name. But when I look at my post, my real full name is posted. Can I prevent this or not? The settings are correct unless there is something very hidden I am not seeing. My number is on a business account and I am not allowed to create a My Verizon account and never have. That being said, I did not even list my phone number.

So what gives? How do I fix this?

Your real name is only visible to you.  If you log out and then look at your post, you'll see the screen name that we see:  jdm2010

A full name shows up as an indicator of who you are when you're logged in yourself. When you post, everyone else sees the name you created, only you can see your real name.

I had the same question. Good to know!
