Whether privately or in everyday work, there are always situations in which we want to share data with others. If the data packages are not very large, this can easily be done by email. However, from a certain size, that makes no sense – and then solutions are needed, with which you can transfer data or release others for download. WeTransfer offers something like that and even via Dropbox the sharing of data is possible. Brand new in this area is Firefox Send – another alternative, mainly due to the ease of use.
Data packets up to 1 gigabyte in size should be easily shared with Firefox Send. In contrast to WeTransfer or Dropbox no registration for the service is necessary – not even your own e-mail must be specified. Instead, the desired files are simply uploaded via drag & drop or the file selection and can then be made available to others via a share link. You can select whether the data is available for download for 5 minutes, 1 hour or 1 day – after the selected period, they will be automatically deleted. This should give the user more security that his data does not persist forever in the cloud – and provides even more security end-to-end encryption, which is used according to Mozilla. If you want to go one step further, you can also set a password for the files.
If you need more upload volume or want to use other features, you can sign up for the Firefox account and enjoy other benefits. For example, after the registration, an upload of up to 2.5 GB is possible and, in addition, the release can also be given to multiple recipients. They also have the option to download the files several times. In addition, the download window can be extended to 7 days. Mozilla has thus presented another service that is attractive to users and hopefully attract new users. Lately, there have been quite a few innovations around the Firefox browser, which are designed especially for security and privacy and thus serve the needs of many users.
