The  Voicebase Payment Card Industry (PCI) redaction app is a Freshcaller marketplace app powered by Voicebase that identifies and removes sensitive/confidential financial data from call recordings.


User Requirements: Only admins and account admins have access to install apps. This article contains the following sections:


What is PCI redaction app?

As a call center company, you may handle calls where customers share their credit card details, SSN, or other confidential payment details. Once the call is complete, the PCI redaction app removes such sensitive payment information from the call recordings but retains the context of the conversation.

Disclaimer: The PCI redaction app is powered by Voicebase. For any issues with the quality of redaction, reach out to the Voicebase support.


How does the PCI redaction app work?

  1. After an agent completes a call in Freshcaller, the PCI redaction app sends the call recording to Voicebase.
  2. Voicebase scans the recordings for credit card numbers, SSN, PII data, or other numerical financial data.
  3. Voicebase replaces the detected data with a blank tone and returns the redacted recording to Freschaller.

Note: Once you install the app, all call recordings go through Voicebase for scanning. If no financial data is detected, Voicebase returns the recording without any redaction.

How to access the redacted recordings?
