WeTransfer is a new way to send very large files to anyone through an e-mail message. It does not require any registration or account creation for sending these files and is absolutely free to use. You can send files as large as 2 GB using the free version of WeTransfer.
They also offer paid Pro subscription plans that allow you to send files as large as 20 GB, ability to store your files, password protect the files and customize the expiry of the download links. With the paid subscription, you get 1 TB of cloud storage.
In order to use WeTransfer, you do not have to install anything. You can just visit WeTransfer and choose the free WeTransfer or login to your WeTransfer Pro account. For using free WeTransfer, you do not need any account.
You can select one or more files with total file size adding to 2 GB or less. You can also select an entire folder containing files. You have to provide your email address and the email address of the recipient. You can also enter a brief text message but it is not really needed. After this, you can simply click on the Transfer button. Depending on how large your files are and your internet bandwidth, the uploading of the files may take some time and the transfer is completed.
The recipient gets an email message that you have sent them some files. The message contains a download button along with the name of the files and the download links. They can use the download link to download these files without requiring any login or account.
The files sent using the free WeTransfer are automatically deleted after 1 week. The links sent through email will fail to work after this period of 1 week. If you want to control how long the links should stay active then you can buy subscription for the WeTransfer Pro which costs only $12 per month.
