Sure, we can understand why this is a concern – you are using your internet connection to make and take phone calls. And not all VoIP systems are deployed correctly to ensure secure phone calls. If the right server security isn’t there, or you are using weak, default or no passwords, you are at risk for getting attacked.
The key to having a secure network (and secure phone calls) is to use a VoIP provider that has safety nets in place. Reliable providers will use a few different methods to add layers of security.
Before signing up with a VoIP provider, make sure you understand their security measures.
