Recording/Wiretapping Phone Calls & Conversations Without Consent Prohibited in Florida

It is both a crime (3rd degree felony – Section 934.03(4) Florida Statutes), and an actionable civil violation (934.10) to record phone calls in Florida without the prior consent of the party or parties being recorded.

Exceptions do apply, see Cohen Brothers, LLC v. ME Corp., S.A., 872 So.2d 321 (Fla. 3DCA 2004), Jatar v. Lamaletto, 758 So.2d 1167 (Fla. 3DCA 2000), cause dismissed 786 So.2d 1186, and Stevenson v. State, 667 So.2d 410 (Fla 1DCA 1996), rehearing denied, but the general rule is that non-consensual recordings are prohibited.
