Create an anonymous file sharing link
Anonymously upload here your confidential file, it will be securely encrypted and saved in our databases, a link will then be generated allowing you to share your file. Your private file is self-destructed on the expiration date or when the download limit is reached!
This service allows you to host any file in the cloud anonymously, temporarily, and create a secured link easy to share. It's a free cloud based anonymous file hosting service.
How do I use it and how does it work? It's very simple.
1) Select the file to share:
For totally anonymous users, the file size is limited to 25MiB. This is the maximum attachement size of most email providers. You can send only one file per upload, if you want to host many files on the same temporary file sharing link consider creating an archive and uploading it. Registered users can go up to 100 MiB.
2) Adjust your link lifetime settings:
We provide you with multiple settings to customize your private file temporary link lifetime according to your needs. You can make it last minutes or days, have a limited audience or an unlimited one. Registered users have access to a wider range of settings (check our features page for more details).
3) Upload your file:
By clicking the "generate my private link" button, you will send your secret file to our servers via a secure SSL tunnel, it will then be compressed, encrypted (with AES-256 using a strong random password) and then stored in our databases. We will recall you about the expiration conditions of your link in the confirmation page.
4) Share your private link with anyone:
The final step is to share your self destructing file sharing link via your favorite service. The share buttons we present you will pre-fill for you a message with the expiration date and click limit in addition to the link. Of course the temporary link is very simple to share via any mean and doesn't require any application to be opened, with only a simple browser you can open any BriefLink.

BriefLink is a free service, our goal is to propose a simple but useful web tool for anyone to use, the more users the more happy we will be! Please consider making a donation (once we set up an account on a donation platform...), BriefLink is free to use and ad-free, but maintaining our network infrastructure and servers for hosting files is pretty expensive ! By supporting us with any donation you can be part of our team.
