ShareDrop is a free alternative to the Firefox Send service for file sharing. This is a peer-to-peer encrypted file transfer service.

It creates a space where others can connect with one another. If both devices are connected to the same local network, this service retrieves and displays them automatically. Other than that, you must exchange a link or QR code in order to connect the devices. Once the connection has been established and both devices are visible to each other, file sharing can commence.

This is peer-to-peer sharing, which means the files are downloaded directly from the sender. There is no link or server in the middle. Therefore, both devices must remain connected until the transfer is complete. There is no limit on signup or size. You may exchange files of any size and format with ease.
