Why would you need to record a phone call?

There are many reasons you would want to record a call – legal purposes, professional documentation, a replacement for note-taking, or a personal record of a call. Most business owners find immense value in recording financial, contractual, or other business related conversations for protection against ill-intentioned business partners. Journalists & private investigators utilize phone call recording for documenting interviews for future reference. Others want to record personal phone conversations to navigate conflict or for legal documentation.

It is important to note there are legal regulations regarding phone call recording of which vary by state. Some require both parties to consent to have the conversation recorded, so check your state’s laws to see if you need permission before you hit “Record”. For example, the state of Massachusetts requires verbal consent to call recording from the recipient before the individual can record the phone call.
