The way we communicate is advancing by leaps and bounds, which is why we need tools that meet our needs. In the case of sending files, we have encountered the problem that most of the messaging sites has an upper limit on file size which can be sent.

This was a major inconvenience for us, as it is difficult for us to work with very old files. Thanks to Wetransfer this problem disappears completely, this fantastic tool allows us to send files up to 2000Mb for free, which is truly amazing.

With Wetransfer we save all these steps which for some of us are usually very boring. Because it is a website that it does not require prior registration. It also has a very simple and easy to use interface, but without forgetting how useful and innovative it is.

The use of this platform it's completely free. As long as the files do not exceed 2 Gb.

It is very important to note that once the file has been sent, Sara available for 1 week. This means that the person to whom we send it will have a period of one week to download it, this as a security way to protect the information.
