Mozilla launched Firefox Send in beta quite a while back. It’s a file-sharing service that allows users to share files with end-to-end encryption. The link to the file automatically expires so that users have peace of mind that their stuff doesn’t stay online for free. Mozilla has now confirmed that Firefox Send is no longer an experiment as it has exited the beta.
Users can share files with download links that expire automatically after a certain period of time. They can also set the number of people who can download the file before it ceases to exist. Users can even set up an additional password which would be required before the recipient can download the file. There’s obviously nothing stopping people who download the file from Firefox Send to make as many copies of the file as they so desire and distribute to their heart’s content.
Mozilla claims that this functionality makes Firefox Send a better service for sharing sensitive documents and files online. Since this is a browser-based service, you can start using Firefox Send from today in any browser.
It’s possible to send files of up to 1GB by default. Those who sign up for a free Firefox account will be able to send files of up to 2.5GB. Mozilla is also launching an app for Android in beta so that users can also share files from their mobile devices.
