My Verizon App Wi-Fi Scanning


Why does the My Verizon App insists on turning on Google's location service? My device will need to turn on Wi-Fi scanning.

This message comes up 8 out 10 times I open My Verizon App. Other times it just hangs up and doesn't do anything.

Wi-Fi scanning will do nothing except run my battery down as I live in a rural area with no Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi scanning is pointless when there's no Wi-Fi for it to pick up.

Often I give up and just use My Verizon website instead.
