Firefox Send – a new free encrypted file transfer service

Mozilla just introduced Firefox Send, a free encrypted file transfer service that allow users to safely and simply share files via any browser.

Firefox Send uses end-to-end encryption for any sensitive files, such as financial or credit reports, that you wish to send over the internet and protect your files before they are opened.

Send also offers multiple security options to further protect files.

“It also offers security controls that you can set. You can choose when your file link expires, the number of downloads, and whether to add an optional password for an extra layer of security,” Nick Nguyen of Mozilla stated in recent blog post.

When you send files to your recipients, they will simply receive a link via email to click and download the file. The overall experience is designed to be simple and as easy as sending email.

You can also share up to 1GB in file size and 2.5GB by just signing up for a free Firefox account.

Mozilla also said Firefox Send will be available as an Android app in beta later in the week.
