anonymous file sharing sites?

has anyone used a site like one of the ones listed for sharing pdf's or can you recommend another site that would work? I don't want to use google drive so the files don't link back to me.

thanks

The way you worded this sounds incredibly shady. I think that's why nobody has responded yet.

Use the curl command at that anonymous.io place using a VPN on borrowed wifi (starbuck et al), and you should be good to go.

You can look more in to the curl command to better control your headers, but the big thing is that you'll be immune to potential browser fingerprinting and things like that, since you're not using a browser.

I would test run once from some other place until you get the mechanics down, then when ready, just grab a wifi and go with the curl command -- don't hit the site at all during that transaction.

Find another borrowed wifi and test your download (you can use curl again to fetch the file), and that should be as garbled as you can get.

Thanks for the links. I sometimes have to share very large files (e.g. virtual machine images) with clients; gofile.io looks interesting because of no limits.

The public wi-fi suggestion is a good one if you are serious about anonymity.

Yea, it's a shame Mozilla dumped their sharing service. It was great for sending stuff to folks.

Wasn't necessarily anonymous, but it was great for sending things like tax returns to accountants and lawyers.
