Subject description: How to share files online securely for Mintpup Xenialdog
 

add-apt-repository ppa:micahflee/ppa

Users need to install the above PPA in order to install OnionShare.

After the PPA is installed, you need to update : apt update

Then you install OnionShare : apt install onionshare.

What's unique about OnionShare is its ability to share files via the Tor network, so it is anonymous and encrypted.

OnionShare need to be installed in the local machine, and you need to have Tor browser installed too (visit the Tor website to download Tor browser).
Then you open OnionShare and select files you want to share. A URL will be associated to these files, and you send this URL to the receiver, via an encrypted means of communication. The receiver have to have Tor browser installed, because the URL only works with Tor browser. Once the sharing is complete, OnionShare stops by itself in the local machine.

This way, you don't need to trust an online cloud storage, and you have the abilty to transfer files via the Tor network securely and anonymously.

if you feel bad using Tor network, you need not; it is for everyone, because privacy is everyone's right, even on the internet.
