How To Check Verizon Text Messages Online
Imagine yourself expecting a very important text message that you cannot afford to miss. You are constantly checking your phone, waiting for that text message to pop up.
It would be really terrible if you forgot your mobile phone somewhere and could not check your messages and reply immediately. Or would it?
If you are using Verizon, you don’t have to worry about this problem at all. That’s because Verizon allows its users to check their messages online. Of course, this means that you can wait for that text message on your computer, wherever you are at.
Here is how you can check Verizon text messages online.
View Your Verizon Text Messages Online
Viewing your Verizon text messages online is actually quite simple, and everyone can do it. All that you need to do is follow these simple steps, and you will be able to access all of your Verizon texts on your computer in no time:
- Visit Verizon’s website by clicking here.
- Fill the required fields and log in from your web browser.
- Select Account on the My Verizon homepage.
- Click on Text Online.
- Read and accept the terms and conditions.
- Choose a conversation in the left pane to view messages.
In case you have a business account, you should log in to My Business. Everything else is the same.
If you want to reply to a message or send a new one online, you can do that as well. The steps are pretty much the same, and all that you need to do is fill the required fields on the right.
Enter a phone number that you want to message in the “To: “ field. You can enter up to 10 numbers at once.
After that, compose a text message in the field labeled Your Message and click Send. The maximum number of characters that you can use in your text message is 140.
If you want to send attachments with your text messages, you need to know that they might not work for numbers that don’t use Verizon. As such, you should only send attachments to Verizon numbers, to be sure.
Aside from using Verizon’s website for receiving and sending text messages, you can also browse their store and shop for their equipment. They offer accessories, wearable tech, smartwatches, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and much more.
To browse their store, click on “Shop” on their official website.
Use the Verizon Messages Plus Application
If you want a more elegant solution or don’t want to log in to Verizon’s website all the time, you can use the Verizon Messages Plus app.
The Verizon Messages Plus app can be downloaded from the App Store for the iPhone and the Google Play Store for Android phones. It is also available as a desktop app and web app from Verizon’s official website. This app allows you to check your Verizon text messages on any device anytime you want to, no matter where you are.
Download the Verizon Message Plus app to your preferred device. Once you have downloaded the app, it will ask you to sync the phone that you want to monitor text messages from.
You can sync your mobile phone by entering your phone number. After that, Verizon will automatically send a verification text message to the number you have entered.
This text message will contain a verification code that you need to enter in the app itself. Then, choose a nickname, and you are ready to go.
The app will display a list of your conversations. You will also be able to send texts from this app and create and manage group chats.
With the recent updates, the app allows you to use the following features:
- Drive mode – disable incoming messages and notifications to avoid getting disturbed while driving

- Tons of emojis and GIFs
Users can also create their own GIFs and edit photos with the recently added features.
