Introducing Firefox Send, Providing Free File Transfers while
Keeping your Personal Information Private
At Mozilla, we are always committed to people’s security and
privacy. It’s part of our long-standing Mozilla Manifesto. We are
continually looking for new ways to fulfill that promise, whether
it’s through the browser, apps or services. So, it felt natural to
graduate one of our popular Test Pilot experiments, Firefox Send,
send.firefox.com. Send is a free encrypted file transfer service
that allows users to safely and simply share files from any
browser. Additionally, Send will also be available as an Android
app in beta later this week. Now that it’s a keeper, we’ve made it
even better, offering higher upload limits and greater control over
the files you share.
Here’s how Firefox Send works:
Encryption & Controls at your fingertips
Imagine the last time you moved into a new apartment or purchased a
home and had to share financial information like your credit report
over the web. In situations like this, you may want to offer the
recipient one-time or limited access to those files. With Send, you
can feel safe that your personal information does not live
somewhere in the cloud indefinitely.
Send uses end-to-end encryption to keep your data secure from the
moment you share to the moment your file is opened. It also offers
security controls that you can set. You can choose when your file
link expires, the number of downloads, and whether to add an
optional password for an extra layer of security.

Share large files & navigate with ease
Send also makes it simple to share large file sizes – perfect for
sharing professional design files or collaborating on a
presentation with co-workers. With Send you can share file sizes up
to 1GB quickly. To send files up to 2.5GB, sign up for a free
Send makes it easy for your recipient, too. No hoops to jump
through. They simply receive a link to click and download the file.
They don’t need to have a Firefox account to access your file.
Overall, this makes the sharing experience seamless for both
parties, and as quick as sending an email.
Sharing large file sizes is simple and quick
We know there are several cloud sharing solutions out there, but as
a continuation of our mission to bring you more private and safer
choices, you can trust that your information is safe with Send. As
with all Firefox apps and services, Send is Private By Design,
meaning all of your files are protected and we stand by our mission
to handle your data privately and securely.
Whether you’re sharing important personal information, private
documents or confidential work files you can start sending your
files for free with Firefox Send.
