Hey fediverse, what's the best alternative to suggest when a relative wants to use wetransfer? I used to suggest Firefox send, but that's not an option anymore, and the relative isn't technical enough to use wormhole...
@o0karen0o if you have any synology or nextcloud server, you can share a folder for upload only purpose
I like the ones where you can decide how long a file stays online. But you do have to keep track of the link where you have uploaded the file as no personal information is asked like your email address with 'you know who'..
@o0karen0o Have a look at #Retroshare: https://retroshare.cc. No practical experience to share, but on paper it looks appropriate:
- Fully decentralized, and designed to provide maximum security and anonymity.
- Retroshare uses swarming similar to BitTorrent, to accelerate transfers.
- Possible to share large files.
- Privacy and anonymity is guaranteed beyond direct friends with anonymous tunnels.
@o0karen0o if you have access to a Nextcloud instance you can share a folder as a dropbox. Generates a URL that they can upload to. But even if it gets discovered can't be abused as easily.
Not sure if that matches all your requirements, but it might.
@o0karen0o Here's another option that has a relatively quick installation process that I didn't see mentioned: Sandstorm (https://sandstorm.io). It's open source and self-hosted.There are a couple of apps that can be similar to sharing a Nextcloud folder. There are some interesting security benefits when using Sandstorm (https://sandstorm.io/how-it-works). Hope that helps!
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
