Can someone record a phone conversation without your knowledge?

My mother & father-n-law say that they record phone conversations with people. Is that legal without the other persons knowledge??

Illinois' laws prohibits the recording of communications unless all parties to the conversation consent.

See my Legal Guide Recording Conversations in Illinois

Check with a lawyer in your locale to discuss more of the details. Twelve states like Illinois require all party consent to record.

Good luck to you.

Again, check with a lawyer in your locale.
