Upload GURU is a free large file sharing website. Its free plan provides encrypted transfers with 1 GB size limit for a single file. Apart from this, 2 GB free cloud storage space is also provided by this website.
If I compare this website with MyAirBridge, Dropjar, and few other sites, then this website lacks in single file sharing capacity. However, the best part of this website is that it supports encrypted transfers (AES-256 encryption) in this free plan which is not possible in many other large file sharing services.
Apart from this, Upload GURU lets you add the password protection as well as use automatic file deletion feature which bring it back in the competition. You can add the number of days and downloads to automatically remove the uploaded files.

How to Use This Free large File Sharing Website?
Here is the homepage link of this website. You can use this large file sharing website without creating an account. However, to increase the file size limit up to 1 GB and to claim 2 GB free storage space, you have to create the free account.
After creating the account, you can drop files on its interface or use Add button. After adding the files, you can use two options: AUTOMATIC SHREDDING and PASSWORD PROTECTION.
Using the first option, you can set the number of downloads and number of days after which your uploaded files will delete automatically from servers. And using the second option, you can enter password of your choice. Only the correct password will unlock the file for download.
When you are done with these two options, click on START UPLOADING button. When all files are uploaded, then sharing links will generate for every single file. You can give those sharing links to your friends and the password (if applied).
Your friends can open the download link, enter the password, and start the download process to grab the shared files.
I believe encrypted transfer is the most important factor when you need to share large files securely. Upload GURU comes with this feature and provides it absolutely free. However, if you are worried about storage and single file sharing limit, then you should look for other websites like I mentioned in the beginning. If you like the features of this website and are fine with the sharing limit, then go ahead and use it.
