4 Risks for using Your Personal Phone Number at Work

Personal privacy is critical, no matter what stage of life you’re in.. When you use your personal phone number for business purposes you are creating risk to your personal privacy and your career. Below are 4 clear risks that you can avoid with a dedicated business phone number.

1. Giving Out Your Personal Number at Work

The majority of the people you work with are going to be strictly business relationships. Unfortunately using only your personal number does not create a clear line between who you wish to interact with personally and who you want to keep as just a business contact. You end up in a position where you do not get to decide who is a part of your personal life.

2. Work/Life Balance

Hardly anyone ever turns off their personal phone at the end of the day. This means you can get unwanted calls for your job after hours that people expect you to answer. Having no separation between work and personal hours can be unhealthy.
Tendant Voice lets you choose when your business number rings or goes straight to voicemail. The app also gives callers more options to help them get service when you are not available.

3. Legal Hold

Any communication can be a part of a legal hold including personal messages with colleagues, clients, or even personal contacts. All text messages, pictures, videos, and messages on your phone will be collected because there is no way to distinguish between business and personal communications with clients, colleagues, or anyone else.
*A legal hold is a process that an organization uses to preserve all forms of potentially relevant information when litigation is pending or reasonably anticipated.
All business data is completely separate from personal data so if a legal hold occurs you can provide the data easily.

4. Sensitive Data Breach

Texting, calling, voicemail on personal devices have minimal security. If your device is lost and falls into the wrong hands, there are big consequences for the business information on that phone.
Tendant has secure data encryption in transit and at rest. We can also remotely disable your account in the event your phone is lost.
