Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will recorded calls stand in court as evidence?
A: Depending on the local laws, recorded calls may be used as an evidence provided that the person being recorded is aware that the recording is ongoing. Most countries do not allow recording of calls without the other party’s consent as such can be considered as wiretapping.

Q: Will the other end know that they are being recorded without me telling them that they are on record?
A: Depending on your app, the person on the other end of the line may or may not notice that they are being recorded. Some apps are stealthy enough to do that while others inform both ends that a call is being recorded through beeps or announcements.
