Pros and Cons of Recording Conversations


It’s easier than ever to record a conversation without anyone knowing that it’s being done.

Most smart phones, many cell phones and even some mp3 players have an audio feature called “voice memo” or something similar.

On an Apple iPhone, for example, the feature can be turned on with one tap of the screen, followed by a tap of the record button. A tiny microphone at the device’s edge can capture a nearby conversation in a quiet room.

After a few seconds, the phone’s screen goes blank but the recording continues.
