How to Share Files in a Secure way

When it comes to sharing files, most online users either tend to use email or cloud storage services to send data to and fro. So, this article will help throw some light on the other sharing services which most do not know to date.


WeTransfer- This is a free file transfer service that doesn’t ask its users to sign-in before using the service. Therefore you can share the files multiple times or via a customer link, which stays active for a week or so. For free users files up to 2 GB can be shared and for premium users, the limit is up to 20 GB along with features such as password protection and profile customization along with a free 1 TB storage.


SendAnywhere- This company offers fast file sharing service which allows users to share files through a link or a 6 digit code.


Firefox Send- This is an online file sharing service that allows the sharing of data files up to 2.5GB limit. Developed by Mozilla the beta version first hit in March 2019 and is now a popular file-sharing platform among Redditters.


MediaFire- This is a file-sharing platform popular among mobile users. Even bulk uploads and downloads can be performed on this browser-based solution. However, some on screen-ads prove disturbing in such scenarios.


Now, to those who are interested in knowing more about business-related solutions, here’s a piece of advice. Pick a service that offers end-to-end encryption and protects data from being snooped by hackers or other data prying parties.


Also do go through the permission settings and keep a tab on the link-sharing option on how it works and how the files can be accessed by the other party. Here go for a solution that offers a digital passcode.


Always go for an audit on the files which are being sent and accessed by other parties. See that the files which are no longer required to be shared are deleted from the links and cloud systems entirely.


Note- Adding to the list are regular platforms such as iCloud, Dropbox, Onedrive and Google Drive.
