How to send large files from a mobile with Firefox Send

For a few years we have seen how the way of sending files has changed. We have gone from using CDs and removable memories with USB port to do it all over the internet. Messaging applications have been updated to allow the sending of any type of file, but they are not expressly designed for it.

If we usually send many files we may need a tool for this. In the computer it is known WeTransfer, A simple website that lets us send files up to 2 GB.

Mozilla has launched a similar service, Firefox Send, and now has an Android application to conveniently manage these actions. We explain how.

A useful and simple application

Firefox Send is an application that allows you to send one or several files to a person simply by sending the link generated by the application.

We can put several files at the same time as long as the maximum size of them does not exceed 1 GB. If we want more space we can create a Firefox account increasing the available space up to 2.5 GB. There are no payment plans or charges of any kind.

To do this we simply have to click on the blue icon in the lower right corner and select the files we want. A sum of their size will appear on the screen, to ensure that we do not exceed the limit.

Double security

Mozilla performs a encrypted of the information and if we see fit we can also put a password to the download, so that in addition to the link that information is needed.

A very useful option is that we can modify the expiration of the shipment with two variables, time and number of downloads. In the first case we have from 1 to 100 downloads and in the second from 5 minutes to 7 days.

The application can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store but it is still in the testing phase so it is possible that we have a problem when uploading the files.
