Mozilla officially launches Firefox Send

One of the differences is that Firefox Send doesn't have any paid tiers-it's completely free, whether you send up to a 1GB file or log into your account to send up to a 2.5GB file. Send allows you to send up to 1GB of encrypted data directly to another person by simply dragging and dropping files onto the page. Recipients don't have to have a Firefox account to access the file, just the link. Firefox Send offers various controls and features, such as the ability to limit how many times the file can be downloaded before it expires. Each file link is set to expire after a certain amount of time or number of downloads.

Given that the files are encrypted and aren't stored, however, it's going to be ruddy hard for anyone to find out what you've sent anyway.

Mozilla has officially released a file sharing service called Firefox Send which uses end-to-end encryption to keep shared files private. If you are logged into a Firefox account, you can share files of up to 2.5GB and enable a limit of up to 100 downloads.

To protect the file with a password for an extra layer of security.

Securely sharing large files can be annoying, but Mozilla wants to make it easier.

The nonprofit behind the popular open-source web browser has its new encrypted self-destructing file-sharing platform, . The service, which will serve as a direct competitor to the publicly traded Dropbox, lets anyone quickly, and easily, share important files, before it gives them the disappearing Snapchat treatment, making them disappear forever into the dark void of the Internet. Mozilla today also announced the launch of Firefox Send beta for Android devices. Despite the branding, Firefox Send works with any browser.
