Mozilla released Firefox Send; the encrypted file sharing service

Author at TechGenyz Tech
Mozilla Firefox Send File Transfer

Mozilla introduced Firefox Send, a service that allows you to share larger files or datasets. Similar to the well-known competitor WeTransfer, where the content is uploaded to a server.

The recipients will then receive a link to download the data to their devices. Mozilla promises that the data will be encrypted end-to-end. The service should work in any browser, as Mozilla writes in a blog entry. To share files, they are dragged and dropped into a window on the Firefox Send website.

Mozilla announced the service in 2017 and shortly afterward Firefox Send could be used during a beta test. The service is now ready, and everyone can use Firefox Send in every browser. Besides, there will also be an Android app, which will get a beta test soon.

Launched back in 2016, Test Pilot Firefox Send was an experimental program that was used as trials for the early adopters. Users were generally curious to try out the experimental Firefox features that were still in work-in-progress. Of all the features one of the features was a file-transfer service named ‘Send,’ debuted in 2017 that enabled anyone to encrypt and upload large files to share across the web. The shareable URL either expires automatically after 24 hours or after the preferable number of downloads has been done.

Users can then set how long the download link should remain valid and whether the file should also be protected with a password. Then the data is uploaded, and the user gets a link, which he can send via a service of his choice to the recipient. Soon, an Android-App will appear. Files up to one gigabyte in size can be submitted by anyone via Send. If you have a free Firefox account, you can send files up to 2.5 gigabytes.

Today, Firefox Send is moving beyond Test Pilot to start life as an official Mozilla product, approx two months after the company announced that Test Pilot has expired.
