FileSender: About us

FileSender is a web-based application for sending large files, quickly and securely. The files are available for a limited amount of time and a limited amount of receivers, as chosen by the sender. Afterwards, the files are automatically deleted from the application. FileSender is quick, easy to use and can handle files of any size. And because of our extensive security protocols, files only reach their intended recipients – and no one else. That makes FileSender a popular choice at research institutes, healthcare organizations and educational facilities.
