How to share files with end-to-end encryption using Firefox Send

Firefox gives you a smarter way to easily send your files to someone.

Mozilla Firefox just introduced a new Firefox browser with a new logo and great features such as Firefox Monitor and Lockwise which focus on privacy protection.

Another feature integrated into Firefox browser is Firefox Send which went out on beta since March 12, 2019. Firefox Send is a free online file-sharing service with end-to-end encryption, able to handle files up to 2.5 GB, and let users set the limit of download and access expiration.

Firefox Send can be reached to use through its URL, send.firefox.com or you can use it from Firefox browser by navigating the User icon on the right corner and take a look at the bottom of the dropdown dialog, and you'll see Firefox Send there.
