Under Inbound Call Destination, select “Fax”.
Specify the location of the fax (email, user, or group).
To change the phone number from the fax line to the normal phone line, simply repeat the steps and select the desired phone location.
How Safe Is the Fax?
Fax is mistakenly considered the safest way to deliver a document, and it is still widely used in government, health care, and the legal profession. It may affect you to know that those security measures are outdated. If you are sending sensitive personal data, it is better to email it than to fax it. In fact, email is much safer than fax. However, sometimes sending a fax is still required. If you need to fax, send online. Faxing online is much safer than sending faxes on a landline.
The truth is, there is no 100% security. The VoIP fax line can still be hacked or destroyed as can be email, but the analog fax line is the most secure. When it comes to secrecy, analog faxes are easy to catch. Aside from the fact that anyone can go over the fax machine and pick up a document, analog lines are easy to access. With the analog fax line, the perpetrator only needs to enter the mobile resource box at street level using the most expensive device from Amazon in order to be able to capture all incoming and outgoing faxes.
With an internet fax line it is a big challenge, as it is not so easy to get into a data server that can be found anywhere and has a lot of built-in security protocols. If you are genuinely concerned about the privacy of your message, encrypted with a digital signature email is the safest form of communication available.
If you need to have a fax machine, you can still do that with the online fax service by connecting an ATA adapter.
