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

FULL DISCUSSION
 

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 wetransfer.com/ 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.
