How to Use the Voipfone Browser Dialler Plugin

Our web browser plugins allow you to automatically dial any telephone number shown on a website just by clicking on it - no matter what telephone you are using.

How Do I Use It?

  1. Just click on the number and your own phone will ring
  2. Answer the call normally
  3. There will be a second's pause as we connect you. You then hear ringing tone as if you'd just dialled the number yourself
  4. The call carries on as normal

Voipfone Browser Calls

The Voipfone Browser Calls extension recognises telephone numbers shown on a web page, and converts them to clickable links.

Simply click the link and the telephone registered to your Voipfone account will ring. When you answer, you will be connected to the number displayed on the webpage.

It's quick, easy, and no misdialled numbers! You do not even need to have a VoIP telephone to use this service. Simply divert your Voipfone extension to your mobile or landline - very handy when on the move. And because you are receiving a call back rather than dialling it yourself, you will benefit from Voipfone's call rates, and may save money on roaming charges as well.

What Does It Work With?

It works for Windows PCs, Linux and Mac. We have plugins for Microsoft Edge, Firefox, Safari and Google Chrome.

How Do I Install It?

Before you start, you need to have handy the email address that you registered with Voipfone from, your 8 digit account number starting with a '3' and your 6 digit password.

Please note: Virtual PBX users will need to enter both the account number and extension number in the format 3XXXXXXX*2XX, and use the password for the extension itself. This will ensure that the correct phone rings when you click to make a call. Extension passwords can be found under the Services tab of the Voipfone Control Panel, in the Virtual PBX, PBX Extension Numbers section.
