Frequently asked questions

How to upload a file

Anonymous Files lets you upload files anonymously. Just drag and drop a file to the upload box, or you can click the box and select a file to upload. Please read the detailed guide on Medium.

How do I share my file

Once your file has been uploaded the download page url will be returned and you can easily copy it by clicking the "Copy url" button. This is url you need to share with others.

Temporary file upload

You can make your file upload temporary by using the expiry feature. The file will be deleted after this amount of time. You can set a variety of expiry values from 1 hour (1h) to 24 hours (24h), 1 day (1d) to 7 days (7d), 1 week (1w) to 4 weeks (4w), 1 month (1m) to 6 months (6m). This feature is useful for private file sharing between friends or using it as a temporary file upload feature.

Is my file private

No, your file will be publicly accessible by the url and search engines will list the file. If you need the file to be more private from search engines then use the no index feature.

How to stop search engines from indexing my file

Use the no index upload option. This prevents search engines from indexing the file by using a noindex meta tag. The file will not show up in search results. You can still share the file download url easily as it will be publicly accessible.

How to display my file

If you upload an image, pdf, or text file they will be displayed on the download page, if the file is less than 3MB. Read the guide to see examples of how they will be displayed.

How long are files uploaded for

Uploaded files will remain for as long as possible. We will delete files that have not been accessed or downloaded in a long time (longer than 6 months).

How do I delete my file

You cannot delete a file once it has been uploaded. However, you can set an expiry on a file so that it deletes after a certain amount of time. The maximum amount of time the file can be deleted after is 6 months. If you really messed up and need to delete a file you uploaded, if you can prove ownership contact us and we may be able to help.

What can I upload

You can upload anything that is legal. Please be respectful of this service - it was built to respect your privacy and make file sharing cool again.

What are the upload limits

Max file upload size is 5GB. There are no other limits for reasonable usage.

What are the download limits

There are none. We do not make you wait to download. We do not limit your speed. We do not limit the bandwidth you use. (Most file sharing sites do some or all of these and try to make you pay for access). Just be reasonable.
