Mozilla has launched a new tool that lets you send huge files for free. This new tool called Send allows users to send files up to 1GB in size. These files can be accessed for up to 24 hours. Mozilla has programmed Send to self-destruct these files after 24 hours. This ensures that this service is not abused.
To make it even better, Send works across browsers. So if you don’t like Mozilla Firefox, you need not worry. Send is also totally free with no tracking involved, which should please privacy-conscious users.
A Firefox Test Pilot experiment, Send comes with client side encryption. This means that even Mozilla cannot view the contents of the files uploaded.
To use Send, all you need to do is visit this webpage – https://send.firefox.com
Click on “Select a file on your computer” and start the upload.
Once you have uploaded the file, you will be presented with a link to the file. You can copy it to your clipboard and send it to your friend.
Once the file is downloaded on the other side, it gets deleted from Mozilla’s servers.
So essentially, files uploaded on Send can be downloaded only once. Additionally, if not downloaded within 24 hours, the file is removed from the servers. To sum it up, the files are removed either when they are first downloaded or after 24 hours of the upload, whichever is earlier.
