Frequently Asked Questions

Are businesses allowed to record phone calls?

The legality of call recording by businesses varies by jurisdiction, but generally, companies are allowed to record phone calls under certain conditions. The key factor is consent, which can be either one-party or all-party consent, depending on the laws of the country or state. In jurisdictions with one-party consent laws, only one party involved in the call needs to be aware of the recording. In contrast, all-party consent requires that everyone in the conversation be informed and agree to the recording. Call recording software and services are commonly used by businesses for quality assurance, legal compliance, training purposes, and customer service improvement. Businesses often implement a call recording setting or notification at the beginning of calls to inform participants that the call may be recorded for these purposes.
