FaxZero Review: Send 3 Pages Faxes for Free

Email  Print Print  

FaxZero ReviewA few years ago I tried to find the best internet fax options and came away with few options that impressed me. Fast forward a few years and of the companies I listed on that page, the only I still use is FaxZero.

What do you get? You can send 2 faxes a day of up to three pages as long as you’re OK with the first page, which isn’t counted, has an advertisement on it (it’s just the FaxZero logo, but I imagine it could be anything). You can send something as long as it’s a Word doc or a PDF, I’ve just always scanned the document to a PDF and sent it like that.

When you send the fax, you have to enter a valid email address. They send you an email with a link that you must click before they send the fax, this is probably to cut down on junk faxes (that and the limit). The email they send comes in about a minute or less but it could take longer.

I’ve sent maybe a dozen faxes this way over the years (who uses fax machines these days anyway?) and it’s worked like a charm each time. I imagine this wouldn’t be all that great for professional use but in most cases my recipient didn’t care that the first page had a huge FaxZero logo on it. They also have a pay version for $1.99 per fax which has a limit of 15 pages and no advertisement on the first page, for those cases where the first page ad would matter.

Do you know of any better free faxing services?

    Ditto – for simple, infrequent faxes of a personal nature, these guys are the best for sending. Too bad they don’t have an option for you to receive, but I suppose that would be much more complicated to manage.

      eFax lets you receive faxes for free (their FAQ says up to 10 per month). At least, they used to. I’m not sure if it’s still possible to signup for the eFax Free service.

    I’ve looked at free faxing services & I agree that FaxZero seems pretty good.

    My (personal) issue, though, is privacy. Like you, I hardly ever have to send a fax these days. When I do, however, it’s usually something reasonably confidential (medical, insurance, financial, etc). I’ve been hesitant to send personal, confidential information through these free fax services.

    What do you think of this?

    • Jim says:

      I wouldn’t fax anything confidential through an online service. With a regular fax machine, I don’t think anyone can really “intercept” your stuff unless they were tapping the phone lines (I’m just guessing here). With an online service, you are uploading a document first (it’s not encrypted), so someone could steal in transmission. Then another company gets it, Faxzero or whomever, and that’s another point of insecurity. Finally they fax it, which introduces the original, albeit small, risk.

      • Jim says:

        I had to fax something a couple of days ago and found another review that indicated Faxzero was encrypted. I emailed them and this is the response I got.

        “Hi Jim,
        Your document is encrypted and faxed immediately (as soon as you confirm your e-mail
        address or pay for a paid fax) then deleted from the server, with no human
        intervention. We keep no copies.

        -Steve”

        When I uploaded my docs it was sent via https so it seems pretty secure to me.

    I upload a .pdf of the document and cover page I need to fax to box.com then use the free efax service Box has built in. It works great and I don’t think there are any limits on number per day/month/year. You might need to have an efax account. I can’t remember how I got it all set up in the first place, but I’m sure Box has a walkthrough.

  4. Interesting, I’ll have to check these guys out the next time I send a fax(once a year, haha)

    I usually refuse to send faxes though, unless I really need something from the company. Faxes are such an antiquity, hard for me to support any business that won’t adapt to e-mail..

    I remember that post of yours a long time ago. Back then and now, I still use FaxZero too.
