Have you ever wanted to send sensitive information over the internet? Ever been worried about your files being exposed?

Well, worry no more!
We want to introduce to you our safe and secure encrypted transfer.
pCloud Encrypted Transfer is a highly-secure way to send private files. We’re using state of the art encryption methods, unbreakable by any known means. Our cryptography implementation is based on the Stanford Javascript Crypto Library (SJCL). You can send up to 5GB to as many as 10 friends at once, absolutely free.

How does it works?
First you need to select files from your computer. Then, type your e-mail address and the recipients’ e-mails.
After that, type and retype a strong password and if you want, add some message, it will be encrypted too.
When you click the Transfer button, the browser will start encrypting your files with the password.
The encrypted files will be uploaded to our servers and the original files will never leave your computer.

The recipients will receive an e-mail with a link to the files, but not the password. You have to keep the password secret, and use a secure way to communicate it to the recipients.
We recommend that you use separate channel for communication like text message, different e-mail or just a coffee meeting.

On the other hand, if you receive a link with encrypted files you won’t be able to view them unless you have the password. If you have it – you will be able to view the list of files in the link and chose whether to download all or some of them. Your browser will download the encrypted files and start decrypting them with the password.
After it’s done, you will be asked whether you want to save them or just view them.
The sensitive information can be saved securely on your computer.

You can send up to 5GB like in the unencrypted transfer, but unfortunately there are some technological limitations.
During the process of downloading and decrypting, the file is kept temporary on your computer’s internal memory so it’s limited up to 200MB. In other words you can send as many files as you want, but not a single one should be larger than 200MB.
If you need to send a larger file, you can split it with some archiving program to parts of 200MB.
It requires few more steps, but sending securely a file so important is worth it.
