Security or Privacy of a Call

Post by Uncle-Enrico » Tue Mar 01, 2011 8:40 am

With my old land line, I felt safe talking to my bank and giving them my social security number, account numbers, mother's maiden name, etc. as long as I was not using a cordless phone.

I never would consider using a cell phone for these calls.

What do we know about security/privacy with Ooma when a non-cordless phone is wired directly to the Telo?

All service traffic (including voice traffic) to and from Ooma's central servers is securely encrypted via VPN tunneling.
I think eavesdropping is much easier with landline (wire tapping, etc) than your Ooma conversations.
