If you live in the US, then you must have heard about Verizon Communications. It’s very hard to miss their type of company and services offered. Most probably, you are using Verizon telecom services.
A few years ago, Verizon started providing every internet service you could imagine to their customers that includes email. Now, you don’t need to go out of your way from the Verizon ecosystem to get a particular service. Everything was fine up until a point when Verizon decided to merge its email services to AOL. They probably thought that it was too taxing to handle the email services with all these customers.
Since 2017 AOL has been handling the Verizon email services. And since AOL is owned by Verizon, so there is no issue of privacy or anything. If you are a Verizon customer, you can still use your old email address in AOL. Or if you haven’t used it for a while, then chances are it is deleted from the database.
So, if you are unable to log in to your Verizon account, follow these steps. But first, let’s have a look at how you can create a new account with AOL. Since there is no Verizon email now, you have to contend with AOL.
