WeTransfer vs TransferNow : compare the security for your files

On WeTransfer, with a paid account, you can password-protect access to the files in a transfer. This basic feature to secure your uploads is not available on the free service of WeTransfer. With TransferNow, this feature has always been available for free to allow you to secure access to your files.

On TransferNow, in addition to locking down access to the download, your password can be used as an encryption key to make your files unreadable on our servers by anyone trying to read them, including us.

This additional security feature allows you to ensure the confidentiality of your most sensitive data.

With WeTransfer, the files you send are stored in Europe or the United States. With TransferNow, your files are stored closer to you.

We offer multiple storage regions around the world and you can choose to force a storage region based on your business requirements and security needs. Storing files closer to our users allows us to ensure optimal latency and faster upload and download speeds.

To the best of our knowledge, WeTransfer does not perform any security analysis on files that transit through their platform. At TransferNow, to protect all of our users, we perform various security scans that allow us to detect malicious files and block them from spreading to our users.

WeTransfer vs TransferNow : compare our public APIs for transferring files

On WeTransfer, sending files is easy, however activity is limited to 2 GB per file transfer and the service does not offer any alternative to integrate its solution and automate the sending of large files.

No more headaches for developers! With our API/SDK, integrate our file transfer solution into your website, mobile application, SaaS solution or any other custom workflow.

In just five minutes, automate file sending with a few lines of code and gain immediate productivity. The TransferNow API is easy to implement in any solution and is suitable for all business uses.
