Because Firefox Send is end-to-end encrypted, not even Mozilla can see the contents of what you’re sharing. You can also add a password to a given file, so that even if someone intercepts that URL—by compromising the recipient’s email, say—you can keep it secure.

Compare that experience to an encrypted messaging app like Signal; you know what version you have on your phone, and how it behaves. A browser-based solution offers no such guarantees, and potentially exposes users to either server-side or man-in-the-middle attacks. White acknowledges that those scenarios aren’t likely, especially for the average user. But human-rights activists, journalists, and other potential targets should take it into consideration.
