Mozilla’s Firefox Send file-sharing service is now available to all

Mozilla’s encrypted file-sharing service, Firefox Send is no longer being tested and has finally come out of its beta phase. The Firefox Send service allows users to send download links that can automatically expire after a certain period of time.

Alternatively, they can also expire after a set number of people download the file that has been sent. Users can also protect the files with a password which the recipient has to enter before he downloads them.

According to Mozilla, because Firefox Send gives this additional control to users, it makes it a much better choice than its rivals for sharing any files that carry sensitive or confidential information. However, we should add that only because you set a limit on the number of times a file can be downloaded, it doesn’t stop people from making copies of the files after they have downloaded them.

So, if you are indeed something that has very sensitive information, you should still be vigilant about it and take other necessary steps to make it safe. Regardless of which browser you use, Firefox Send is now available to all.

Using the service, you can send files that are up to 1GB in size by default. But we should add that if you sign up for a free Firefox account, you will be able to send files that are up to 2.5GB in size.

It is also worth noticing that Mozilla is not only making its service available on the web. The company is also rolling out an Android app of Firefox Send that enables you to share files via mobile.

However, we must add that as of now, the Firefox Send Android app is in beta and will only be available to all once the testing is completed and the Mozilla is sure that it is bug-free.

Currently, there is no word on whether Mozilla will be launching the Firefox Send app for iOS or not. We would have to wait to know when that will happen if it will happen at all. The new service by Mozilla competes with the likes of Dropbox and WeTransfer.
