How to protect a shared file?

How to protect a shared file?

If I want to share a folder with someone, is there any way to password protect it without getting the premium service?

Does DocSend protect a folder or is that a premium service?

Thanks,

Charlie

I have to be honest and say 'no idea'! I know that email is not considered secure at all, as to how often compromises occur etc. I'm afraid I'd have to pass.

No, to send a shared link with password protection you need to pay. The work around could be to Zip it or password protect the actual files rather than the link. 

 

And DocSend starts at $10pm - there is no free tier.

Thanks Mark. Last question- how secure is it to share a folder as a gmail attachment?
