How wetransfer works

WeTransfer is an online platform through which you can send your friend files as large as 2 GB, absolutely free. You don’t even need to register and hence can send files in no time. If you want to send even larger files, you can go for the option of Plus Account which supports 20 GB of files at a time, storage of up to 100 GB and you also get to protect the important files with a password.

So, how to avail of this service? We have broken down the procedure into steps:

Step 1: Open a browser, e.g., Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc. on your computer. You should do this on the same computer where the file is stored which you wish to send.

Step 2: Proceed to the address bar and type in www.wetransfer.com which is the website through which you’ll send your files. Alternatively, you can also type We Transfer in the address bar and open WeTransfer’s website from the search results.
