Mozilla has made it easy for you to share large files securely and privately with whomever you want, eliminating the need to depend upon less secure free third-party services or file upload tools that burn a hole in your pocket.

Mozilla has finally launched its free, end-to-end encrypted file-transfer service, called Firefox Send, to the public, allowing users to securely share large files like video, audio or photo files that can be too big to fit into an email attachment.

Firefox Send was initially rolled out by Mozilla to test users way back in August 2017 as part of the company’s now-defunct “Test Pilot” experimental program.

Firefox Send allows you to send files up to 1GB in size, but if you sign up for a free Firefox account, you can upload files as large as 2.5GB in size.

The service uses a browser-based encryption technology that encrypts your files before uploading them to the Mozilla server, which can only be decrypted by the recipients.

Unlike popular file storage and sharing services like Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and Box, Firefox Send is not available as desktop software or internally integrated with other products, i.e., Firefox, from its parent company.
