Let’s admit that we all wished to send encrypted files over the internet. Some file-sharing sites do offer this feature, but what if you want to send a self-destructing file?

Firefox Send is a feature that lets you send password-protected files over the internet. The service allows you to send files of up to 2.5GB in size with password protection for extra security.

While the service is very secure and doesn’t save your file to the cloud, you still have the option to set the expiration date. By default, every file link generated via Firefox Send is set to expire after 24 hours.
