Is there a way to do this?   I no longer have a landline phone and I don't have a smart phone.

 

So is this possible and if so how?

 

Thanks

From personal experience, one has to have at least a phone/fax modem attached to a land-line or whatever dedicated phone line is used by the cordless phone.  That's how I got my desktop and my phone/fax modem [USR 56K] to work; I have an A-B switch, A=internet, B=USR 56K phone/fax modem, connected to the phone line coming out of the wall.

You can use a Web-based service but I can't say how much privacy they have.

Thanks - that would make a difference depending on the subject matter but I appreciate knowing the option is available if need be.

There are fax services that encrypt the data but I don't know of any free ones.

 

This company allows 2 faxes of 10 pages every 24 hours. You can contact them and ask if the data is encrypted and  what is their privacy policy.
