How Secure is Free Conference Calling?

Very often, people hear the word ‘free’ and become immediately wary. There is, of course, the knee-jerk reaction that there’s no such thing as a free lunch. In this increasingly cynical, avaricious, money-centric world filled with false promises and loopholes, it’s an understandable reaction. Still, having even given WHPAY?’s website or blog a cursory glance, you would, by now, know that although we can make no promises about lunch, there is such a thing as a genuinely free conference call.   The second misgiving can be a little more pervasive and enduring, though.

The sheer volume of cars at rush hour makes this statistic less surprising for all those of us who commute to work daily and are familiar with the congestion. But what if we could reduce, or completely eliminate, our commute? Conference calling offers one ideal way to do this, and to reduce our […]

Thus, the ability to work from home opens up great professional opportunities for those who may otherwise have very little available to them. However, while working from home may alleviate some of the pressures and difficulties confronted in […]
