Mozilla launches Firefox Send, a free self-destructing file-sharing service

Firefox Send lets you share 1GB files with no strings attached Mozilla launches Firefox Send, a free self-destructing file-sharing service
Katie Ramirez | 14 March, 2019, 06:27

THE MOZILLA FOUNDATION has announced a full rollout for Firefox Send, its service that allows users to share files of up to 2.5GB free of charge using just their browser. Send allows you to send up to 1GB of encrypted data directly to another person by simply dragging and dropping files onto the page. As before, the system is designed as a one-to-one or one-to-few sharing system: Any files uploaded are encrypted such that Mozilla can't view them or disclose their contents to anyone else and expire after a time limit or user-selected number of downloads - up to 100 per file - is reached.

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. Send the link to the intended recipient any way you see fit, and their download of the files will begin when they either click on it or enter it in their browser. To do so, you visit this link to start uploading your files.

Firefox Send lets you share 1GB files with no strings attached

To protect the file with a password for an extra layer of security. "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". While there are already plenty of online storage provider out there but Send might be something you want to consider if you want to share some files without having them permanently stored online. "Overall, this makes the sharing experience seamless for both parties, and as quick as sending an email", Mozilla says. "So, it felt natural to graduate one of our popular Test Pilot experiments, Firefox Send, send.firefox.com".

Mozilla is also releasing a Firefox Send app for Android.
