re: Mozilla launches Firefox Send (free encrypted file transfer) VIEW POST


I don't have to send big files all that often, but I love the idea of using a service built around encryption and privacy, that will also auto-delete or expire using the settings I provide. That seems a lot safer and cleaner than dropping it into a Google Drive or Dropbox account and then sharing access to that folder forever. The fact that it's open-source and built by Mozilla is of course also a huge positive.

This isn't a common need in my life, but I'll be excited to give it a try soon.


It's more an alternative to and friends than Dropbox or Drive. But for sharing files on those services I've had good success encrypting files myself and then sharing the key via a side-channel. Slightly less convenient, but works well enough.
