Mozilla has launched a new encrypted file-sharing service called Firefox Send that is similar to WeTransfer. It allows users to send up to 1 GB of files free of charge. Users can increase their transfer capacity to 2.5 GB if they open a Firefox account that is also free. Unlike other services, there are currently no paying options. Files on Firefox Send are ephemeral, each download link being set to expire after a certain time or number of downloads, with a maximum of 7 days or 100 downloads. You can also protect downloads with a password.

Ars Technica, “Firefox Send lets you send files up to 2.5 GB with time and download limits.”

Mashable, “Mozilla launches Firefox Send, a free self-destructing file-sharing service.”
