One of the leading browser community Mozilla launched free and encrypted file sharing service Firefox Send.
The service will accessible in all browsers at send.firefox.com. Mozilla starts working on Firefox Send in 2017.
Send is a free encrypted file transfer service that allows users to safely and simply share files from any browser. Additionally, Send will also be available as an Android app in beta later this week.
All files uploaded to Mozilla’s servers are encrypted, said
Send uses end-to-end encryption to keep your data secure from the moment you share to the moment your file is opened. It also offers security controls that you can set. You can choose when your file link expires, the number of downloads, and whether to add an optional password for an extra layer of security.
Users can upload one file at a time, or multiple files at once, which Firefox Send will automatically assemble in one big ZIP file.
By default, the service supports files up to 1GB in size, but if users sign up or sign in using a Firefox account, they can send files as large as 2.5GB.
“We know there are several cloud sharing solutions out there, but as a continuation of our mission to bring you more private and safer choices, you can trust that your information is safe with Send,” Nick Nguyen, Mozilla’s VP of Firefox Product, said today. “As with all Firefox apps and services, Send is Private By Design, meaning all of your files are protected, and we stand by our mission to handle your data privately and securely.”
