I know that a lot of people are calling jails every day, but a lot of them are not secure because they are not using the service that is guaranteeing the safety of their calls. We went with Securus because we knew that they were going to keep the calls secure, and that helped because we usually have calls with our lawyer when we get in touch with my sister. Our lawyer is a family friend who is like a part of the family, so we have to be careful just for her sake.
I picked out the service because I thought it would give us all what we wanted, and that made it easy for all of us to check in on my sister. Her best friend comes over to talk, and then sometimes she has private talks with our lawyer friend. My parents have sat down to talk to her in private, and all the calls are at least secure for us.

I know my parents are talking to my sister about things that are really personal, and they do not even want to say them in front of the lawyer so that they do not come up in court, but they have been scared that someone would hack the calls. I picked out Securus because I knew I could show them that at least Securus is protective of our calls.
The calls that we are placing I think are helping my sister feel alright while she is in jail, and I know it helps her get ready for her court case. We are all going to be there, and we are going to keep calling her in the interim. It has been easy to use, and it has saved us a lot of paranoia. Our calls are secure and help our family stick together.
