OnionShare is a free and open source, multi-platform program that allows you to securely and anonymously share files, host websites, and communicate with friends using the Tor network



Review

Share files. OnionShare allows you to send files and folders securely and anonymously:

  • You can add files and folders through the file manager or by using the drag and drop function;
  • It is possible to close access to files immediately after sending them (uncheck the box to allow downloading of individual files);
  • You can pin a tab so that it opens automatically when you open the program;
  • It is possible to configure when to start and disable the onion service;
  • You can download the files using Tor Browser.

Getting files. OnionShare lets people anonymously upload files directly to your computer, essentially turning it into an anonymous Dropbox:

  • You can choose where to save the files and folders you want to send;
  • You can pin a tab so that it opens automatically when you open the program;
  • It is possible to configure when to start and disable the onion service;
  • You can send files using Tor Browser.

  • Host a Website. To host a static HTML website with OnionShare, open a website tab, drag the files and folders that make up the static content there, and click “Start sharing” when you are ready. By default OnionShare helps secure your website by setting a strict Content Security Policy header. However, this prevents third-party content from loading inside the web page;
  • Anonymous chat. You can use OnionShare to set up a private, secure chat room that doesn’t log anything. Just open a chat tab and click “Start chat server”. When connecting to the chat, a random name is assigned, which can be changed.
