Avoid Computer Phone Nightmares aka VoIP

By: Dee Scrip


Although computer phones, aka VoIP (voice over internet protocol) offer the most optimal means of communicating when considering quality and cost, free computer phones cause countless problems when unsuspecting victims download their “free" software.

90% of current computer phone providers, whether free or charging you for service, do not have secure lines or patented technology.

What does this mean to you? A lot of money out of your pocket.

On unsecure lines, when you place calls from your PC (IP address) to another PC (IP address), there is nothing in between the calls to protect you. This leaves you vulnerable to terminal viruses, worms, Trojan horses, unscrupulous hackers, or other uninvited guests who can listen in on your conversations.

Anyone in the world can access your name and phone number.

Why is that important to you? Ultimately, your computer may become corrupted, causing a costly computer crash, in addition to violating your privacy.

Secure lines that include a provider’s own patented technology simply means, calls from PC to PC go through the provider’s own server or platform, which incorporates its own security protection, thus enabling you to talk privately and with peace of mind.

What can you do? If you currently use a free computer phone or pay for a service, find out if the provider operates from a secure server that includes patented technology. Request a detailed, written description relative to what their service provides. If the service includes an open server and/or they cannot give you the needed assurance or requested informationHealth Fitness Articles, then discontinue the service and immediately remove the software from your computer.
