How can I disable the hotspot feature on my child's iPhone so they can't turn it on?

Sign into your MyVerizon account online as the account owner and navigate to the Blocks section and add a hotspot block to their line.

Or calling customer service at 1-800-922-0204 from a landline or *611 from their phone.

I also need to do this but do not see the option in blocks or anywhere in family base

Any updates on this?  In MyVerizon/Blocks I get lots of options re. how to block content, messages, etc. but nothing for hotspot.

Great question, OCP_in_NMA. As it turns out, this option is not available as this is a built in feature with most Smartphone devices. Currently, the only option on most smartphone devices would be to click and turn it off. AnthonyM_VZW
