Firefox Send is a Free, Encrypted File Transfer Service from Mozilla

"Although we develop our services in ways to minimize identification, you should know that it may be possible to correlate the IP address of a Send user to the IP address of other Mozilla services with accounts; and if there is a match, this could identify the account email address", Mozilla informs.

Send uses end-to-end encryption to keep your data secure from the moment you share to the moment your file is opened.

Firefox Send acts as a secure file-transfer service, meant to help you privately share sensitive files with others. Send also lets you configure auto-expiry settings for the link. After going to the site, users can drag and drop a link, choose an expiration date, or limit the number of downloads.

After you click the "Select files to upload button", you pick the file you want to send from your local machine. The maximum for both being 100 downloads and seven days, respectively.

The service is billed as a simple - and free - way to send large files.

And in a blog post announcing the service, Mozilla frames it as a service for privacy and security hawks, though few details were offered beyond the fact that the files are encrypted end to end. 'Sending files over the internet is something many of us do everyday.

Mozilla also shared that Firefox Send will be available as an Android app in beta later this week. Mozilla took quite some time to smoothen the edges and ensure that the service will work for more than just a handful of people at once.

"Mozilla receives an encrypted copy of the file you upload but we can not access the content or the name of your encrypted file", the organization explains in the service's Privacy Notice.

Firefox Send is free for anyone to use.
