Send Files Securely to Anyone Anywhere in the World
Pros & Cons:
Head to Send Anywhere's website https://send-anywhere.com/ in a web browser and you can start sending or receiving any files anywhere securely with a 6-digit key, a QR code or a URL containing the key. You do not need to signup or signin with any credentials to send or receive files, except for the unique key, which expires in 10 minutes and can only be used once.
If a 10-minute span is too short to be useful, you can opt for 24 hours. Install this app Send Anywhere which gives this option and more features on your device, either an Android, iOS or Windows Mobile smartphone or tablet, or a Windows, Mac OS X, Linux or Chrome OS laptop or desktop.
Ideally designed by ESTmob Inc. based in South Korea, this excellent app allows you to send and receive unlimited files of any size and of any type available in your system.
With the app, you can opt for a basic file transfer with a 6-digit key that can be used once and lasts only for 10 minutes similar to the web version, or choose sharing for 24 hours with a key consists of 6 alphanumeric characters that can be used multiple times to a file. You can also get an option to login in each of your devices and skip the hassle of inputting a key whenever you want to receive files between them.
No files are stored on Send Anywhere’s server for a basic file transfer according to the developer, but for sharing for 24 hours, files will be uploaded and temporarily saved on the server for 24 hours, after which they will automatically be removed.
