Mozilla's new file-transfer service isn't perfect, but it's drop-dead easy
For less high-stakes uses, Send offers reasonable security and privacy assurances.

Mozilla is testing a new service that makes it dead simple and quick for people to semi-securely share files with anyone on the Internet.
Send, as the service is called, allows senders to encrypt any 1-gigabyte or less file and upload it to a Mozilla server. The service then creates a link with a long, complex string of letters in it that's required to download and decrypt the file. Mozilla will automatically delete the encrypted file as soon as it's downloaded or within 24 hours of being uploaded, even if no one has downloaded it.
