SendItoMe: Upload & Share

Today, I came across a new site called SendItoMe. In simple terms, SendItoMe is like YouSendIt, except with better security, like encrypted HTTPS session (SSL/TLS) to make sure your data is secure, and with a few other features. To date, what many of these file transfer sites don’t provide is security. When I send over a big document, I don’t want the the whole world to see it; all I want is that the person I am sending the file to is able to see it, and nobody else. With SendItoMe, that is the case. With their SSL/TLS security, intruders can’t peek on the downlaod, and after 24 hours, the file gets deleted. That’s what I call security.

I don’t like sending files over the internet for two reasons:

  1. Security: If I send a file, it is usually intended for one person, and one person only. With YouSendit you don’t know what happens after its uploaded. It probably stays on their servers, but who knows. With SendItoMe the file gets deleted in 24 hours.
  2. Simplicity: There are other services that are similar to SendItoMe, but this service is very to use. All you have to do is type in the recipient’s email address, your email address (which is optional), and the message to recipient (also optional), and locate the file on your computer. It’s that simple.

In conclusion, I think SendItoMe has a great future, and their security features really win me away. I don’t tend to send files using these types of services, but I might just have to start using SendItoMe,

What do you think of SendItoMe? Would you use a service like this? Leave your opinion in a comment below.

  1. William,

    I see what your saying, but you have to think about it. The online sharing business is quite big, lots of competitors, but none with security like this. When I’m at school and need to send a large file back to me, and I don’t have my flash drive, I need to use an online service. This is where SendItoMe comes in. Got to think about all situations 🙂


  2. I think you’re both overlooking the real reason(s) to use the site…none of those gay wait times, no ads (yet), no passwords to remember, no logging in and out, ability to send LARGE files, no pop-ups…need I keep going?

    It’s a great site to bookmark just in case…

  3. Speaking of simplicity… have you seen ?? I wonder what their security is though… You can choose when the file is deleted, even as early as 30 minutes.

    Senditome seems okay, but there is already a bunch of these services. Maybe they will do something different? We’ll see.

  4. Sui — you bring up some great points. Fact is, its a simple, easy to use system, that I am really looking forward to using.

    Andrew — I have to admit, Senduit’s web site is very very simple and clean. There needs to be a service out there that will do something different with online file sharing…
