How can I read my families text messages? Can I see them online?

Outside of looking at them from their phone, you can't. It's kind of illegal, you know?

Hello Chandler420,


It's important to have the details you need. I can clarify the details you need when it comes to viewing text messages online. You can view your account's total usage through the My Verizon app or through a web browser. You'll also be able to see an overview of usage by each line. You're able to see up to the last 3 months of messages, but content is not available. You can see who sent it, who received it, as well as the time of day. Check here for more information:
