 +===== Send Anywhere =====
  
 +This service was removed from X-plore in version 4.14.

 +//Send Anywhere// is an amazing file sharing service hosted at https://send-anywhere.com
 +
 +Send Anywhere adds a very simple way to share files across many platforms (Android, iOS, Mac, Windows, Linux, in Web, etc).
 +
 +You just send a file from one device, and download it from other. All that is needed is a code (6 or 8 characters long). You must begin the transfer within 10 minutes, then the transfer expires.
 +
 +[[https://send-anywhere.com|{{:xplore:send_anywhere_logo.png?nolink&300|}}]]
 +
 +
 +==== What you can share and where ====
 +
 +From inside X-plore, you can send files out, and download them on any device where Send Anywhere compatible app is installed, or directly from any web browser.
 +
 +You can also send files to X-plore from any device, and download then from inside X-plore.
 +
 +The transfer happens directly between devices with optimal path. Both devices need to be connected to Internet, and normal network data are usually consumed.
 +
 +
 +==== Security ====
 +
 +The files are not stored anywhere, and do not travel through any remote server. File are sent directly between two devices over secure connection.
 +
 +The sharing is very simple, however it comes at cost of security. There is a very tiny chance that someone else may guess the pin code and download your file before intended recipient downloads it.\\
 +So simply don't use this to transfer super-secret files. For typical files that most people send (images, music, video), this service is very suitable.
 +
 +Once the transfer starts, it is secure, nobody else can download or see transferred files.\\
 +You can still cancel outgoing and incoming file transfers while they are in progress.
 +
 +
 +==== Sending files ====
 +
 +To send files out, simply copy some files to Send Anywhere folder in X-plore. You may copy multiple files, or even entire folder. After copying files in, they'll be prepared for upload, and shortly a key will be displayed. If you copy multiple files, they will be sent together in one transfer.
 +
 +When clicking on the item representing the upload, a dialog will show key as well as QR code which you can scan on another device.
 +==== Receiving files ====
 +
 +To receive files, click on //Receive files// button. Here you can enter a code for files that someone send you, or scan bar code containing the code.
 +
 +Afterwards, copying will begin in background with progress shown in status bar. You will be notified when receiving finishes.
 +
 +Received files are placed into the //Send anywhere// folder, where you can open then, and possibly save to other location. Or delete, rename, whatever you do on files.
 +
 +Received files are stored in device's mass memory in X-plore's private folder. When you uninstall X-plore, all files in this folder will be removed.
