What’s with the Puffin?

Our founder, Frederick Charles Puffin, believed that conference calling and online meetings should be affordable, accessible, and, well, fun. He just really, really wanted to help our customers out and show them how serious we are about taking care of our customers…

So we made him our mascot.

Admittedly, Fred is ridiculously cute – and we love how friendly and welcoming he looks all over our website.

Are FreeConference calls private and secure?

There are several different privacy features which ensure all FreeConference.com’s calls are private and secure for it customers. Each account has a unique Access Code and conference URL for entry – during the conference call, a short tone identifies users’ entry and exit. You can also use your personal meeting room to keep an eye on who’s in your call. If someone shows up uninvited, you can kick that individual off the call using our built-in moderator controls.

The details of who joined your call, when, and for how long are always included in your call summary emails, so you’ll never have to wonder whether or not anyone was listening uninvited.

What is the difference between FreeConference “Web-scheduled” and “Reservationless” conferences?

Web-scheduled conferences are scheduled in advance through our website, mobile app or desktop app. When scheduling, you select a date, time and call length, add an agenda and participants. Use the recurring call feature if you have regularly scheduled meetings and set them up in one shot. When the set up is done, we’ll automatically send the call invitations to you and your participants with all the details they need.

Reservationless conferences can be made at any time by sharing your FreeConference.com meeting room URL and /or dial-in number and access code with your contacts. With one click you can copy everything they need to know in an email or instant message – and your meeting ready to go.

With FreeConference.com your dedicated dial-in number and meeting room URL can be used for both reservationless and scheduled calls.
