Access to Your Recordings

As part of our commitment to keeping our users safe, we do not have access to your recordings, and Defense Recorder will NEVER access your recordings unless you directly email or otherwise deliver a recording to us. You are solely responsible for what you do with your recordings. We record for your defense, and you are responsible for the rest.


Social Media

When you interact with our app through various social media channels, such as following us on Instagram or commenting on our Instagram page, we may receive information from the social network. This information may include your profile information, profile picture, gender, user name, user ID associated with your social media account, age range, language, country, friends list, and any other information you permit the social network to share with third parties. The only user data we receive is dependent upon your privacy settings with the social network.


Emails and Notifications

You can control your receipt of email alerts by selecting the “opt-out” option at the bottom of any email we send to you. We do not use your email address for promotional or financial gain.



  • Once a file is deleted, it is gone forever. Please make sure to lock important files immediately. 

  • This app does not record phone calls. 

  • Please keep track of local recording laws and all other relevant laws. 

  • The more vocal you are, the more effective this app will be. 

  • This app only records what happens. If you commit a crime, whether or not you knew, the recording may be used against you in a court of law. 

  • We do not offer legal advice, only tools. Please consult your own attorneys for legal advice.

Note that we do not collect any personally identifiable information from you. We do not share your information with any third parties. If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy, please contact us at
