***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!

With FamilyBase, you can:

  • Gain insights into your children's wireless activities:

    • Calls - Contacted number, call duration, date/time
    • Texts - Contacted numbers, date/time (but not the actual text content)
    • Apps* - Name of app, date/time downloaded, hours of use per app
    • Contacts - View by name* (Is the companion app installed on the child's device?)
    • Receive email and/or free text alerts on activity and usage

  • Set up controls for each user, including:

    • Set time restrictions for when a device can't be used
    • Block contacts that you don't want your child to call or text
    • Create trusted contacts that can be communicated with anytime, except when the device is locked
    • Set limits on usage for data, messages, calls and purchases
    • Lock your child's phone on demand*


For $4.99/month for your entire account, you can use this tool to monitor and manage when, how and with whom your children, or anyone on your account, communicates. We also offer a 1 month free trial to try out FamilyBase before you add the service to your account.

*This feature requires a FamilyBase Companion app to be installed on your child's device.
