How to privately send and share files

It can feel overwhelming when you need to send a sensitive document like an ID or passport to someone. Maybe this is for a job or an application of some sort, but what is the best way to send something like this? Email seems like a logical tool for a task like this, but is it secure enough? Where is this file going to end up once it is sent? Google scans every file being shared through gmail, even when it is zipped. There are options like the various ‘drive’ products, but with these you will have to have an account, manage permissions and still not have that ultimate guarantee of privacy. What is a way to send a sensitive document securely?

At Shareup, we’ve made it our mission to make private sharing as easy as possible. With, you can easily and securely share content of any type without any account or setup, all for free. Let’s walk through how it works.

Next, all you have to do is choose how you want to share the space. You can copy the URL from the address bar, or share the QR code to link to the space.

Last step is to just share the space! You can simply paste the link you copied in the last step to privately share the space to someone. All the contents are end-to-end encrypted, meaning only you and the folks you share this link with can access the space.
