There have been many file sharing websites and programs before, but Send Anywhere does things a little differently by taking convenience and safety into perspective by only keeping files up for a limited time while only allowing authorized users to download the shared file. Some might find this program annoying or limited if you want a more permanent sharing solution. At the same time, it's good for safety and ensuring that the sharing is limited to specific people.
Using Send Anywhere
The Send Anywhere program is very similar to the website. You are given two options for sharing files. If you want the sharing process to be very limited, then click the 'Send' button and select your file. Your file will be live for only 10 minutes, so be sure that everyone is ready to download before you select the file. You can also select 'Share for 24 Hours' to keep the file active for 24 hours before it is automatically taken down.
In either case, you are given a six-digit security code that you must distribute to anyone who wishes to download the file. We will now get into downloading files. Select 'Receive' to download any files. You must enter the proper security code to get the document. It's very hard to guess these numbers because they are random and only last until the file is taken down. There's also a QR code available for those who have smartphones. An unlimited number of people can download the file, so there's no reason to fret if you want dozens or even hundreds of people to get your file.
While Send Anywhere does a great job at file sharing in a limited sense, the excessive security might come off as unnecessary to some. If you just want your friends or business partners to download something without time restrictions, then this isn't the program for you. This is really best for those who value security above convenience. At the same time, it does a wonderful job of making the process as easy as possible.
When it comes to speed and ease of use, Send Anywhere is really a good program. I'd personally like longer sharing times, but the 24-hour option isn't that bad. It's also easy to put files back up if someone just missed out on the download window. If you need a file sharing application that doesn't keep your file online forever, then Send Anywhere is worth your time....
