Everything you need to know about transferly.swiss. Can’t find the answer you’re looking for, just get in touch with us!
What kind of data can I securely and confidentially send or request?
Does the recipient need to register?
No, to use transferly.swiss as a sender or recipient, you only need an internet connection and a browser, which is pre-installed on all operating systems and devices.
How does sending data work?
After encrypting and transmitting your data, a secret link is generated that only you know. This secret link contains a randomly generated transfer ID and a randomly generated cryptographic key. You can send this link to the recipient in any imaginable way. This secret link allows the recipient to download and decrypt the data from transferly.swiss.
How does requesting data work?
Through the help menu, you can select whether you want to request files, messages or passwords. After creating a request transfer, you will receive a secret link that only you know. You can send this link to the person from whom you want to request files, messages, or passwords through any channel. Once the requested data has been uploaded and encrypted, you can download it again using the same link. Since only you know the link, you should keep it safe, otherwise you will not be able to access the data laster.
Sign up for transferly.swiss to receive email notifications when the requested data has been uploaded.
What kind of data am I allowed to send through transferly.swiss?
I lost my secret transfer link. Can I recover it?
No, you cannot (fortunately). The security of transferly.swiss is based on the fact that only you know the secret link and the cryptographic key contained in it.
However, your data will be automatically and irreversibly deleted from transferly.swiss after the expiration of the deadline. If you are registered with transferly.swiss, you can manually delete this transfer in the customer portal.
How secure and trustworthy is transferly.swiss?
Ensuring data security and privacy is one of our top priorities. That's why transferly.swiss was designed to only store the data we absolutely need for operation and fulfilling our obligations. Your documents, messages, and passwords are stored with us in encrypted form, which means we have no way - even if we wanted to - to read them. Only you know the cryptographic key.
When selecting components necessary for operation (anti-bot protection, analytics, newsletter tool, etc.), we meticulously made sure to ensure the highest possible level of data protection, either by operating these services ourselves or by carefully and thoughtfully selecting them while taking into account GDPR and DSG conformity.
How secure is sending or requesting data through transferly.swiss?
The combination of true end-to-end encryption and advanced access protection provides a guaranteed secure protection of your data and the resulting privacy.
Security is not based on our promise, but on the technical and organizational circumstances that you can verify at any time yourself.
What is end-to-end encryption?
End-to-end encrypted data transfer is the safest way to send or request files, messages, and passwords.
transferly.swiss encrypts all data locally in your browser using a unique and randomly generated strong cryptographic key (AES-256). This key remains only with you until you share it with other parties/recipients. This means that only the owners of this key can decrypt and read the data stored at transferly.swiss.
Thus, transferly.swiss can guarantee that only authorized parties can decrypt and read the data.
What is extended access protection?
Transferly.swiss has no control over who views or intercepts your secret link. However, transferly.swiss has control over who we deliver the encrypted data to.
By means of extended access protection, we offer the possibility to uniquely identify the recipient by means of a password or 2-factor authentication (email or SMS code) before delivering the data.
How long are my encrypted data stored at transferly.swiss?
Your encrypted data remains stored at transferly.swiss only for as long as you want or consider it necessary. You define when sending or requesting the data, how long the transfer should exist, and from when it should be irreversibly deleted by transferly.swiss.
For example, you can have a transfer deleted after a period of time or after a certain number of downloads from transferly.swiss.
In the customer portal, you can manage and delete your encrypted transfers manually and irreversibly.
What does "unverified sender" mean?
transferly.swiss also offers its service to unregistered users. Thus, we cannot always identify the identity of the sender. To protect you from unknown and possibly harmful content, we notify you that the sender wanted to remain anonymous.
If the sender is registered with transferly.swiss, we display his or her identity in the transfer depending on the level of identification (email, person, or company).
Can the secret link be guessed?
No, we have taken precautions to prevent this. To prove it to you, here's a little math example:
The secret link consists of a randomly generated transfer ID with 2^128 (340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456) possible combinations and a randomly generated encryption code with 2^256 (115,792,089,237,316,195,423,570,985,008,687,907,853,269,984,665,640,564,039,457,584,007,913,129,639,936) possible combinations. The likelihood that an unauthorized person can guess this combination is 1 in 39,402,006,196,394,479,212,279,040,100,143,613,805,079,739,270,465,446,667,948,293,404,245,721,771,497,210,611,414,266,254,884,915,640,806,627,990,306,816. For comparison, your chances of winning the EuroMillions lottery are 1 in 139,838,160.
Therefore, it is 281,768,625,934,397,872,599,861,440,540,576,433,536,308,967,955,996,036,188,893,599,602,896,103,406,231,965,662,407,645,058,293,928,072,327,524 times more likely to win the EuroMillions lottery than to randomly guess the secret link.
In addition, an unauthorized person would have to guess this combination within 7-30 days. This is simply impossible with today's technology.
