Mozilla, known primarily for the Firefox web browser, has announced the release of a new file sharing service on Android. Its main feature was the availability of end-to-end encryption, which provides secure data transfer. In addition, the application provides a number of other useful features to prevent information leakage.
Firefox Send uses AES-GCM block 128-bit encryption algorithm. Once the files have been uploaded, the sender can choose the number of possible downloads and the validity of the link for which the content will be available. You can also protect access to content by using a password. For added convenience, multiple files can be transferred simultaneously.
After downloading and encrypting the data, the user receives a link with a limited validity period (by default it is 24 hours), which can be sent to the recipients in any convenient way: via messenger, SMS, email, etc.
It is important to note that the recipient does not even need Firefox Send to download the file: the data is downloaded to the company's servers, and therefore can be exchanged between any platforms and operating systems that have access to the browser.
Sending content via Firefox Send is possible not only from the mobile application for Android but also via a browser through a special website.
