Solid basics, powerful features
Unlimited file uploads proceed on the spot without hassle.
There is no limit to file size. There is no limit whether it is 10G or 500G. You can upload all kinds of files: videos, documents, images. Depending on the capacity, it does not interfere with viewing ads/ Sign up/waiting/slow uploading. Now you can share even the largest files in one go without splitting them.
It is safely transmitted and completely destroyed without storing the original.
We use end-to-end encryption (end-to-end 128-bit AES-GCM), which does not store the original. So, unlike typical cloud storage services, the original is not stored on the server. Even file names are encrypted. Without a shared address that acts as a password, the original cannot be read, and censorship or monitoring is impossible. Encrypted files are also completely deleted from the server after 90 hours. (If you use a paid plan, the time can be extended.)
Convenient shared folders and batch operations
Since the sharing unit is a folder (= Webfolder), multiple files can be delivered at once. If you drag and drop a file as if you were putting it in a folder, the upload will start immediately. You can also upload many files at once.
You can share as soon as you start uploading. In other words, the file becomes available for sharing as soon as you select it, without waiting for 100% upload completion. Especially for large file sizes, sharing time can be significantly reduced. Whether the file size is 50Gb or 100Gb, sharing begins in real time in just 10 seconds. In particular, MP4 files can be played immediately, so the waiting time is zero for both the sender and the receiver.
Simple method of sharing links
The Webfolder created from file.kiwi has a unique link address (URL). Forward this to the other person and sharing will begin immediately. It is also created as a QR code so it can be read on other devices and easily shared with one click. Alternatively, you can copy the link and paste it into the body of the email or messenger conversation.
Convenient two-way sharing for collaboration
In addition to simple delivery, it can also serve as a shared file box for multiple people to upload and receive files. Alternatively, you can enable only uploads so that only the Webfolder creator can download. This way, you can use it for file collection purposes like a mailbox or submition box. In particular, it is convenient for people who do not know how to send files because they can receive files by simply sending a link.
Support for Resume download / Resume upload
Network errors often occur when uploading or downloading files. At this point, starting over from scratch is a waste of time, and if the file size is large, you may have to give up altogether. file.kiwi internally transfers files in segments, and even if it stops in the middle, you can proceed from the point where it stopped without restarting from the beginning.
A simpler Chrome extension
Using the Chrome extension, you can transfer files from any site without having to visit file.kiwi or copy and paste. Just click the right button in the text input window and select the 'Attach Webfolder ' menu to start sharing files immediately. It can be used in most browsers (Chrome-based browsers).Get started now

When sharing original photos/videos with friends
It's fun to share photos and videos you take while having fun with friends. Although there are many SNS, it is not easy to share the original content. There is no way to share large files for free. file.kiwi can be used as a shared folder where participants can jointly upload. There are no Sign up requirements or capacity limits. You can preview on the web, select the files you want, and download them all at once.
When delivering media materials or outcomes to customers in file format
When sending photos or videos with large file sizes, try using file.kiwi, which allows you to send the original and preview at the same time. There is no need to send the original files as a zip file, and it is convenient because customers can quickly preview and download individual files. In particular, the original large-capacity mp4 video can be previewed directly on the web, greatly shortening the time it takes to check the result.
When you need to distribute files to many people
Most cloud services have limits on the number of downloads or download capacity. So, if downloads temporarily increase, downloads will be stopped without exception. There is no download count or capacity limit for file.kiwi. You can always download right away as long as the free download time does not expired. When you need to distribute a file on social media, you can share it without worrying about this. Additionally, if necessary, the free download time can be extended through a paid service.
When you need to receive a large file from a computer illiterate
Sending large files is not simple. This task is difficult for those who are not familiar with technologies such as split compression and use of cloud services, and it is also painful for the recipient who has to explain it remotely. file.kiwi simply solves this problem by simply sending a Webfolder link. File uploads proceed intuitively and quickly without file size restrictions or other conditions.
When you need to receive files from many people
For many people, receiving files by email wastes a lot of time. The Submission Webfolder in file.kiwi can serve as a submission box for files. Submitters simply need to press a button to select files, and collectors can download the accumulated files all at once.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQ)
How are files delivered (transmission method) in file.kiwi?
There are two main types of file transfer: 1:1 connection (two devices connect directly to transfer files) and there is a server between the two devices (the sending device uploads to the server, and the receiving device downloads from the server). The 1:1 method has security advantages, but is disadvantageous in transmission speed and has limitations in that it cannot be shared by multiple people at the same time. The server method may be uncomfortable with files being stored externally, but it has clear advantages in terms of mass distribution and speed. file.kiwi is the latter method, which uses a server, but secures security by ensuring that the original is not stored on the server through end-to-end encryption. In addition, because it is a split transmission, it is convenient to upload and download at the same time like 1:1 transmission. The file information and encryption key are included in the delivered Webfolder address, and all you have to do is send it to a device connected to the Internet. Files are passed between them.
Doesn't the recipient need to install S/W?
file.kiwi is basically a web page. All you need is a web browser to use all features. No separate program installation is required for either the sender or the recipient.
How is the service run for free? (Even without ads)?
file.kiwi is basically free, but there are paid plans.
Is there really no limit to the transfer file size?
file.kiwi has no explicit restrictions on file size. The actual possible upload/download size will be determined by the limitations of the device or browser being used. PCs are more stable than mobile devices, and for device limits, please refer to Related Help.
Can I download files directly to an external hard drive?
This is possible if your device is a PC. You can download it without using up any storage space on the c: drive. Check out the Large File Download Guide.
Can I use it on mobile devices (iOS or Android)?
