When someone asks you to fax them something, do you react with a snarky comment about how no one uses fax anymore? As it turns out, nothing could be farther from the truth. Plenty of people still use fax, and they do so for a pretty legitimate reason- it’s a lot harder to hack a fax than it is to hack into someone’s email account. Do you really want your doctor emailing the results of your latest exam knowing anyone who was properly motivated could intercept them? Of course not. That’s why doctor’s offices in particular still use fax machines.
The technology is even evolving and getting better. Gone are the days of enormous fax machines and in are the days of electronic faxes. Electronic faxing is even safer than traditional faxing because you can ensure your information goes right to the intended recipient and no one else.
