Use a Secure Fax Service To Put Your Mind at Ease

You can use your email to send less sensitive documents in the attachment as it’s easy and quick. When it comes to sensitive documents, it’s best to opt for a secure fax service to ensure no unauthorized person gets the information.

DoNotPay can guide you through secure fax services using a computer, phone, or reliable fax app. We also show you how to fax and get a fax number without too much hassle.

A Fax Machine vs. Online Fax

Modern technology has helped bring communication to another level. It’s become much easier to liaise with business partners, family members, and friends.

What about sending sensitive information and files to an organization or a person? Is there a secure and safe process for that?

Lots of people will opt for the good old fax machine or regular mail. Both options are valid, but there are issues you need to consider first.

To use a fax machine, you first need to print out a document. This increases the chances of nosy colleagues in your or the recipient’s office reading the file.

When you send files to your doctor, therapist, or lawyer, you don’t want your medical or legal information to end up in the wrong hands. There is a reason why doctor-patient and lawyer-client relationships are confidential. Faxing also requires a lot of paper that, in turn, negatively affects the environment.

Take a look at this short comparison between fax machines and online fax services:

You Need To HaveFax MachinesOnline Fax Service
A computer YesYes
A printer to print out a documentYesNo
Printing paperYesNo
A fax numberYesOptional

Don’t forget that sometimes you need to wait in case the line’s engaged. Online faxing takes care of busy lines for you as the system keeps automatically resending your file.

If you already have a stand-alone fax machine, you can turn it into a secure one. To make sure your faxing is protected as much as possible, you can opt for cloud services to protect the traditional faxing process.

How To Send a Secure Fax

Some online faxing services provide the following security features:

  • SSL encryption
  • Confirmation emails notifying you a file was sent or received
  • Customer support
  • Digital fax formats offering an option to save, copy, forward, or print the sent and received files

You can even get advanced security options from some fax service providers in case you handle highly sensitive data.

Secure Online Fax Services

If you’re still wondering why bother with a fax service when you have an email at your disposal, think about email hacking. Hackers attack every 39 seconds and steal 75 files per second.

Another big problem with emails is how easily they can be forged. You end up with viruses endangering not only your computer and data but the whole business network and records.

How many times have you thought a reliable company has emailed you and then realized somebody made it look like an authentic email?

Plenty of industries choose secure fax services instead of email to send sensitive information regarding legal, medical, or trade records.
