What is Verizon Cloud and How Can I Use It?
Are you constantly running out of space to store your data? It is a more common problem than you might think. People often find that all their high-definition videos and photos tend to take up a lot of space in their devices and storage spaces. Cloud-based storage frees up space on your devices while still allowing you to access your data from anywhere with an internet connection. That is exactly what the Verizon Cloud App aims to do.
A Brief Look at Verizon Wireless
Founded almost 20 years ago in the year 2000, Verizon Wireless is one of the largest wireless telecommunication providers in the United States of America. Popularly known as Verizon, the provider is headquartered in Basking Ridge, New Jersey. It offers standard wireless plans as well as special deals like Verizon for Students.
Nearly 154 million people subscribe to the provider, as of 2019. The provider also operates more than 2000 retail stores across the country. In 2019, the provider divided its wireless services into two divisions. Verizon Consumer caters to everyday wireless subscribers while Verizon Business looks after the wireless needs of businesses.
So What is Verizon Cloud?
Verizon Cloud is an online cloud storage application created by Verizon Wireless. It offers a secure online experience to customers. The app offers a secure data vault that you can sync all your devices and data to. The vault itself can be accessed on virtually any device that has a wireless internet connection. Everyone, even people who do not subscribe to Verizon FiOS internet plans can sign up for the service right away. New subscribers are offered a free one-week trial period, after which they will be charged every month automatically.
How Does it Work?
Data is one of the most valuable commodities in the 21st Century. Whether it is a smartphone video clip of your toddler’s first steps or a sensitive internal business memo or your Verizon Bill Pay information, data holds value. If you have ever lost data to a hardware malfunction or worse, to a hacker, you understand how scary it can be. You can lose your devices, damage them, or have them stolen, all with the same result: losing your data.
Verizon Cloud offers a secure data vault to back up things like your contacts, files, photos, videos, and other information. With a secure cloud storage backup at your disposal, you can easily back up your data, manage it, and access it from anywhere with the official app. The service syncs across all your devices, whether Mac, tablet, or smartphone.
How Can I Get It?
By now you’re probably wondering how you can get access to the provider’s cloud storage and backup service. Subscribers to Verizon’s plans can immediately access the app. New customers will need to sign up for the service and take a free one-week trial period, after which they are automatically billed unless they cancel. Please note that you can cancel your service at any time you choose. To get started with your Verizon Cloud Storage, follow the steps below:
Step 1: Download The App
Depending on whether you have an iPhone or an Android phone, go to the App Store or Google Play Store. Search for Verizon Cloud and look for the orange app icon. Click “Install” and wait for the app to download and install on your device.
Step 2: Sign Up for The Service
If you already subscribe to Verizon, all you have to do is sign in to your Verizon Account. If not, you need to click on “Sign Up” and choose the plan you want. The plans are priced based on the storage capacity you choose to go with.
Step 3: Create Your Profile
For ethical and legal reasons, be sure to use your real identity to set up your cloud storage account. The app will ask for some basic information. This can include:
- First, last, and middle name.
- Email address.
- Phone number.
All of this information makes your account more secure and helps with account recovery.
Step: 4 It’s Time to Sync Your Data
Once you have set up your profile, the app will conduct an initial backup of the data on your device. Syncing can take some time depending on how much data you are backing up. It can take up to 2 days to fully back up all your data if there is a lot of it. Once that is done, you can start managing the data in the cloud storage.
Step: 5 Remember to Allow Location Access
The app will require you to grant permission for location access when prompted. Selecting the “Always” option allows your device to constantly backup on cloud storage no matter where you are. It will automatically keep syncing your data so that the online vault is always updated.

The app also backs up text messages and logs which you can access from anywhere.
