Defense Recorder allows you to capture audio that might otherwise go undocumented. However, it's crucial to understand and follow state and federal law when using continuous recordings. We cannot provide legal advice, but we encourage you to use this information responsibly.


Consult with an attorney:

Just like with a dash camera, it's strongly recommended to consult with an attorney before using any recordings for legal purposes, publishing them, or sharing them with others. An attorney can advise you on the specific laws and potential legal implications given your exact situation.


Recording Law Terminology:

- Public Spaces: In most public settings, where there's no "reasonable expectation of privacy," you can record audio without telling anyone else that recording is in progress. In other words, if you are in an environment where you wouldn't discuss your banking information, it's probably safe to assume you can record audio. 

- One-Party Consent (Single Party Consent):

This is the federal law. And means as long as you are part of the conversation you're recording, you can legally record it without anyone else knowing.

- Two-Party Consent (All Party Consent):

This applies in some states. And means that everyone involved in the conversation must be informed and consent to being recorded.
