Trunk is a free website that helps to create own private link to share files online and receive files with friends easily. Unlike other file sharing websites, which generate sharing link after file upload, this website lets you generate your personal link. That link can be used by you and your friends to upload any type of files. File size limit is not specified in this website, so you can try uploading large files as well.
Your files are secured with AES-256 encryption for 7 days. After 7 days of upload, all uploaded files are deleted automatically from servers. No sign up is required and you don’t have to follow complicated steps to upload and receive files.
In the above screenshot, you can see files uploaded and received by me to my private link (known as Trunk).
If you want, you can also subscribe for free with your email address to receive notifications for new uploads to your Trunk.
Note: During my testing, I wasn’t able to download the most recent file uploaded by other person. Only files under the latest files in the list were coming with download option. To download the latest file, I had to upload a new file. This bug needs attention and fix immediately.
