Mozilla Firefox has announced the stable release of free file sharing service Firefox Send with encryption support. Below you will learn more about this service.
Imagine that you went to the meeting with your friends, family or colleagues. You made a bunch of pictures, and now all I ask you to share these photos. What are your options?
You can share pictures through WhatsApp, but they will be compressed. Sharing photos as a document (to preserve quality) can knock people off.
You can copy everything onto a flash drive and transfer it to others. But in the court as if the 21st century is the risk of not getting your thumb drive back.
You can use a cloud service such as Dropbox or Google Drive, but there is a limit on using disk space.
And then exchange files come into play. There are already several popular services, but this did not prevent Mozilla to release its own programme of exchange of encrypted files: Firefox Send.
Firefox Send: easily share files of up to 2.5 GB
Mozilla Firefox web browser open source, which is focused on privacy, has announced the availability of Firefox Send.
This is a free file sharing service that allows you to share files up to 2.5 GB with end-to-end encryption.
You can send files up to 1 GB without any registration, but if you are logged in to your Firefox account, you can send files up to 2.5 GB.
Download files in Firefox Send
Thanks to Firefox Send your files won’t be hanging out in the cloud indefinitely. When you download a file, it gives you three options:
- To limit the number of downloads
- Or set the expiration date of your links (max 7 days)
- If you wish, you can password protect your shared link (so even if someone gets the link, your files can’t be downloaded without the password)
By default, the validity of the link expires after a single download or a single day.
Once you download the file, you will receive a link. Can you give the link to the person with whom you would like to share your files.
Now you can share links with others
Perhaps after watching this video, you’ll better understand how the service works Firefox Send.
How do you like the new service?
Firefox Send is a nice little service with the desired functionality. Soon there will be a application for Android, which can be an important service for sharing files. What do you think?
