Send Large Files Securely on the Web or Android Without the Need to Sign In


Firefox Send

A file storage app like Dropbox lets you send large files, which are too big to attach to an email, by copying and pasting a link that you can give to and share with anyone, but you will need to sign in, and manage the files that reside or take up the storage space in your Dropbox account.

If what you need is just to send large files to share with others quickly without the requirements of signing in, use Firefox Send instead.

It allows you to send large files up to 1GB to share with your friends and family with a weblink for free. You don’t need to sign up or sign in to an account, neither do you need to keep an eye on the files as the link expires after a number of days or downloads.

Both the Firefox Send and Firefox browser are developed by Mozilla Foundation and they are absolutely free for use. The files sent through Firefox Send are end-to-end encrypted so that no one at Mozilla can view the content of the files. To add another layer of security, it lets you attach a password to protect the files against downloading by unwanted parties.

Firefox Send is accessible via the Android app or any web browser, not only Firefox. Signing in to a Firefox account is optional. If you do, you are allowed to send even larger files up to 2.5GB at a time besides being able to manage shared files from any device.

I have used it many times in the past and thought it was great - typical . . . a few spoil it for the rest!

Use this: ShareDrop is a free app that allows you to easily and securely share files directly between devices without having to upload them to any server first:

Very useful. Thank you!

Very timely. I'd been searching for something like this and pretty much got zip. Haven't tried it yet, but looks to be exactly what I wanted. Thank you.
