“I have had nothing but negative interactions with the Securus website, app, phone service, video visits and tablet services since my loved one has been incarcerated. This company says they will ship a tablet once ordered within 3-5 business days. I ordered his third tablet on May 27, 2021 and he has not received it as of June 11, 2021. They failed to send a tracking number but they did confirm the order. And I paid for the month of June which is now almost half over. They will not answer the phone. They do not respond to email. I need to know how much it is going to cost me just to keep waiting for it to get to him. He said there are guys that have been waiting since February and still do not have one. They have nothing but complaints in all reviews I have seen. How is this company allowed to stay in business? And how much money do they get to make by ignoring the fact that people need the services they claim to offer and never supply? Please do something to help us.”

Some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Securus Tablet
Here are some FAQs about Securus Tablet that may help you if you have some trouble or questions about this tablet according to the Securus Help site.
- What will happen if a tablet that we ordered breaks or requires repair?
Answer: Let’s say that the tablet is damaged, destroyed, or in need of repair. If it happens, the staff of the facility will make the appropriate determination and provide the user with a new or repaired tablet. However, it is important for you to note that the facility may or may not approve a repair or replacement, mainly if the damage was intentional. If the repair or replacement was rejected, the subscription will be cancelled automatically.
- What will happen if we stop paying for the tablet?
Answer: Let’s say that Securus does not receive payment from you. If it happens, via PayPal, Securus will deactivate the tablet as soon as possible.
- What do we have to do to cancel or end a subscription for a Secureview Tablet?
Answer: If you want to cancel a subscription, the thing that you have to do is to log into your PayPal account and then cancel from the preauthorized payments section. At any time, you are able to cancel a tablet subscription. However, it is important for you to note that there are no refunds, credits, or prorated charges that will be available for partial months. If you want to avoid further charges, you need to cancel the subscription before the beginning of the next billing cycle. Also, you need to note that Securus Technologies’ Customer Service Agents are not able to cancel a subscription on your behalf. Cancelling your own subscription must be done by yourself via your PayPal account.
- What will happen if the facility takes or limits the services on a tablet that we have ordered?
Answer: Ultimate control over your loved one’s access to the tablet and its services is held by the facility. There is no limitation on access that will be grounds for whole or partial refunds, compensation, credits, or other consideration of any kind, to you or the user.

- Your incarcerated one is released before the subscription ends.
