Firefox Send – Securely Transfer Large Files for Free

Firefox Send – Securely Transfer Large Files for Free
Written by Divine Okoi

We have covered several file sharing applications over time with apps like Wormhole, EasyJoin, and Android File Transfer For Linux. Today, we introduce you to Firefox’s recently released file sharing service, Firefox Send.

Firefox Send is a free, encrypted file sharing service that enables you to privately share files up to 1GB (and files up to 2GB using a Firefox account) with privileged parties. How does it work? Upload the files that you want to share and send the link to the recipients who just have to click the download button.

Send uses end-to-end encryption coupled with an extra layer of security that you can advantage of by password-protecting the links. That way, people who are able to access the download link will not be able to use.

Features of Firefox Send

  • Free to use from any browser.
  • Secure file transfer links with a password.
  • Transfer files up to 1GB.
  • Transfer files up to 2GB using your Firefox account.
  • Automatically expiring links.
  • Recipients do not need a Firefox account to download files.
  • End-to-end encryption.

Firefox Send is convenient for sharing any type of files without fearing that they will get into the wrong hands especially since, like all other Firefox applications and services, it is private.

You can set the download links to expire automatically after 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 20, 50, or 100 downloads. Or after 5 minutes, 1 hour, 1 day, or 7 days.

The option to password protect the download link is also a feature which makes Send cooler than most of the other file-sharing services.

Which file transfer service do you use and will you switch to using Send by Firefox? Share your thoughts with us below.
