Mozilla Firefox Send lets you share encrypted files privately and for free

Firefox Send encrypted file transfer service is free for everyone Firefox Send lets you share 1GB files with no strings attached

Mozilla today announced that its free file transfer service Firefox Send is now available for everyone. For example, you can choose when your file link expires, the number of downloads, and enable an optional password.

First unveiled back in August 2017 as a Test Pilot programme, Firefox Send was created to make it as simple as possible to share files with friends and colleagues.

You can set a limit to how many times the file can be downloaded before it is deleted from the servers: one, two, three, four, five, 20, 50, or 100 times. For those seeking extra privacy, shared files can also be locked with a passphrase. After you go through this brief process, you'll get a link to send to the recipient to download the file. You can share a link to the uploaded files with anyone.

Trump grounds troubled 737 MAX aircraft, Boeing stock tumbles
He said even though their travel arrangements are now in disarray, they had already made up their mind not to fly on that plane. Until Wednesday, Canada and the United States were among the key holdouts that were not grounding the Boeing aircraft .

There are notable limitations - Firefox Send is merely a free service that makes it easy to quickly upload a file and send it to someone without worrying about an exposed copy on a server somewhere or whether the recipient has the right account to download. Mozilla talks up its data privacy and security mission and policy in the blog post, too. And it also uses the Web crypto programming interface, which is one of the better-tested ways Internet applications can perform cryptographic operations without having access to decryption keys. "Overall, this makes the sharing experience seamless for both parties, and as quick as sending an email", Mozilla says. Despite the branding, Firefox Send works with any browser.

Additionally, Mozilla is making Firefox Send available as a standalone app on Android, though that will remain a beta product for now. Unlike other file hosting services, there is now no paid options.
