6 Free Online P2P File Sharing Websites

Here is a list of the best free online P2P file sharing websites. When you share a file with someone online, first it goes to the server of the service you are using. Then, the recipient can download it from there. Whereas a P2P service transfers the files directly between the sender and the receiver. It eliminates the need for a server in the middle. The elimination of the server means your data is not stored anywhere thus no one can access it apart from you and the receiver. With that said, here are 6 free websites that you can use for P2P file transfer online.

All these websites are free and quite simple to use. To make the P2P transfer work, both, the sender and the receiver must be online at the same time. Both have to visit a common link where they can exchange the files. You can generate that link on these websites and send it to the person with whom you want to share the files. Most of these websites offer an extra layer of security with end-to-end encryption and offer unlimited file transfer with no size limit. Whereas a few websites have some limitations. You can go through the article and check that out. Then as per your needs, you can pick the website that suits your needs.
