FaxReceive allows you to securely receive a fax or receive faxes directly to your iPad or iPhone with a temporary fax number on a pay per use basis.

FaxReceive lets the user that needs to occasionally receive a fax and doesn't want the hassle of owning a fax machine or paying for a fax line month after month to do so in a quick and convenient fashion.

For users that want a permanent fax number, we offer a one year receive fax option. When renewed, the fax number does not change.

The app let's you receive a fax anywhere you are rather than be tied to receiving a fax at a fixed location. It provides a secure method of receiving faxes - there is no chance your fax is read while sitting on some unguarded fax machine.

Download FaxReceive and have it handy for when you need to receive a fax.

When you are ready to receive your sender's faxed document, FaxReceive lends you a temporary fax number valid during that receive time window and any extensions. You receive the use of an in-bound number based in the US for a period of time after which the number is no long valid. You provide the fax number to your sender and they fax the document during the time window you've purchased.

Fax transmission is secure so you (and the sender) don't have worry about being unwilling or unable to send to your actual location or the physical security at your fax. This is a requirement to receive faxes from the IRS for example.

If you need to occasionally received signed legal documents, hand written, hand notated documents or simple send a scan of something then this is the solution.

Temporary fax numbers are all in the US.

FaxReceive does not use your device, minutes or phone number to actually receive the in-bound fax. You must have an internet connection of some kind.

Your fax will be delivered directly to your iPhone or iPad and will not pass through or be stored in your email account.

Faxes are provided in PDF format so you transfer them to a wide variety of applications.

This is the best Faxing app on the Internet

not resolved

I highly recommend FaxFile (to send a fax) and Faxreceive (to receive a fax). The “foxes” are the best faxing apps on the internet. In contrast to the competition (see paid ad that is probably listed above this in the search results), the “fox” app directions are easy to follow, tokens are fairly priced, and this is a competent and legit company. I’ve had great experience sending and receiving numerous faxes over the last couple of years using my iPhone.



I spend the $4.99 expecting for this service to be quick and easy however the fax instead of being received and being able to see it, it kept incoming NULL and never received the fax.

I was only willing to pay this amount because it was an important document, I end up having to download another app which was actually quick and easy, it also had a FREE trial period for 7 days. If you download iFAX APP I promise you is way better than the Fax Receive app plus quick and easy to setup and received or send that much needed Fax document!

Receipt of faxes ongoing?


Can we get our own number and just have faxes come whenever? I paid for an hour and wasn’t sure if it were enough time. If we get our own number and not have to watch the time then the app is awesome. If not, then I am somewhat disappointed.
