How to use Wetransfer on mobile and computer
To use WeTransfer on mobile and computer, the process is the same, since on both devices you will have to access the official website to send the files.
The first thing to do is access the WeTransfer website in your browser. After loading the page, you will see the following image:
Click on “Upload file?” to start selecting the files you want to send;
If this is your first time, you may need to accept the Terms and Conditions before proceeding to the next step;
Then click on the “+” sign in the middle of the screen to select the files. To load more than one file at a time, just keep the “Ctrl” key pressed while selecting the files;
Once this is done, you can add a title to identify your transfer and also a personalized message;
After uploading all the files and informing the title and message, click “Next” to continue;
You will have two options:
Send the link by email to specific contacts;
Get the link and send it to as many people as you want.
If you choose to send it by email, you must click on “Next” and inform the email of the people who will receive the message with the download link and your email, which will be the sender;
To finish, click on “Transfer” and wait for the confirmation message without closing the browser.
If you choose to get the link, just click on “Transfer” and wait until the upload is completed and the link generated.
2. On the computer:
The process is similar to the one carried out on the cell phone, but in a more direct way, as the entire process is done on a single screen, and with few clicks.
After accessing the service's website, you will see on the left side the block where you will select the files, enter the title and personalized message and choose between sending by email or obtaining a link.
To send the files, click on the first block where it says “Upload files” and select what you want to send.
You can also open your file manager and drag files into that block.
After selecting the files, you can enter the title and custom message to help people identify the share.
