Privacy is a top priority nowadays and it is important to find companies that you can trust. Recently Mozilla launched its own file-transfer service, named Firefox Send. Since Mozilla has a good reputation when it comes to internet privacy, it’s already safe to say that the new service will be a reliable one.
The announcement was made through a blog post:
At Mozilla, we are always committed to people’s security and privacy. It’s part of our long-standing Mozilla Manifesto. We are continually looking for new ways to fulfill that promise, whether it’s through the browser, apps or services. So, it felt natural to graduate one of our popular Test Pilot experiments, Firefox Send, send.firefox.com.
You can send large files
If you need to share large files, Firefox Send is just what you need. It is possible to send files up to 1 GB quickly. Once you sign up for a free Firefox account it is also possible to send files up to 2.5 GB.
Send makes it easy for your recipient, too. No hoops to jump through. They simply receive a link to click and download the file. They don’t need to have a Firefox account to access your file. Overall, this makes the sharing experience seamless for both parties, and as quick as sending an email.
Your files are completely safe, since the service uses end-to-end encryption. This means that only you and the person who receives the files can open them. Your personal information won’t remain stored in the cloud indefinitely.
Send uses end-to-end encryption to keep your data secure from the moment you share to the moment your file is opened. It also offers security controls that you can set. You can choose when your file link expires, the number of downloads, and whether to add an optional password for an extra layer of security.
