Share More, Share Faster, Share Securely
Filemail is a DropBox alternative to share large files of any size. DropBox is a huge name in the industry. They first appeared in 2008, which is the same year Filemail started, so both of us are established brands.
They, just like us, offer a number of paid plans, free trials, and an enterprise level offering. However, since its inception it has gradually branched into collaborative capabilities, whereas we haven't.
We have apps available for platforms including Windows, iOS, Android, and iPhone. We also have a plugin for Outlook that let's you share large files without leaving the email client. Of course, you can also use our website if you want to. Whatever way you transfer files, we've got you covered.
Our desktop apps for both Windows and iOS, utilise UDP transfer acceleration which gives you transfer rates that are much faster than TCP based solutions. There is no other solution on the market that offers you UDP transfer at the cost-effective prices we charge.
With countless reports of malware infesting devices world-wide, and the many other tactics used by the scrupulous kind, having no anti-virus protection for any account type is a risk not worth taking. At Filemail, anti-virus protection is one of our ever-present security features.
We are purely focused on providing a stellar cloud-based file transferring experience. We don't offer collaborative apps, and other things that lead us astray from our primary purpose, which is to send your files fast.
Both DropBox and Filemail enable you to share files for free, so let's see how the two compare in the table below.
With Filemail you can share up to 5 GB for free, no registration required. No need to compress, nor split files.
Use Filemail and get no restrictions on the number of times your shared files are downloaded, or how much bandwidth it takes up.
Infested files make their way into systems all the time. Unlike DropBox files that go through our system are scanned for viruses.
You want to send a file quickly, and that's it. You don't want the file lingering for an unknown period of time. With us, you know it will be deleted after 7 days.
A 1-user account is for professional and a one-person small business in a multitude of fields including audio/video specialists, engineers, photographers and marketers to name but a few.
