All we require is your name and email address. We will then send you a confirmation email with the password. You can change the password at any time once you have logged in, simply by clicking your name and then account settings.
Once you have logged in you are ready to upload your files. Simple as that!
Just create a folder in the "New Folder" tab at the top of the page, name it for example "Photos" then upload or move all photos to that folder. You can also create as many folders as you like to help keep your account as organised as possible. Its as simple as that!
Once a file is added to Firedrop, it's then uploaded Firedrop's secure online servers. All files that are stored online by Firedrop are encrypted and kept in secure storage servers. The storage servers are provided by a managed service provider, and they are located in data centres across the world!
Storage space! The Professional account has 1TB of storage space whilst the Business account has an UNLIMITED storage space. Which is perfect for small to large businesses and corporations, Or even just the average user who doesn't want any restrictions on the amount they upload.
Absolutely! If your in need of some extra storage just click the Extend Account on the top of your own Firedrop page. The account will be upgraded instantly from the moment you make the initial payment.
If however you wish to downgrade, simply follow the same instructions as above and you will be downgraded to the selected account from when your next payment was due. This means you will remain with the previous amount of storage space until the payment date.
Please note, once you have begun your new downgraded account you will be required to remove files to stay within the usage limit of the new account if necessary.
You can let others view files simply by providing them with the link to that file. The link is located at the top of the page when you open up said file. No one else can see these files unless they have the link you provide them.
Absolutely not! Your files are safe and secure on your account. However, if you wish to upload more files you will need to either upgrade your account or download the older files to be within the usage limit of the new account.
Great! We encourage all of our users to tell us how we can improve Firedrop for them. We will be shortly introducing a Change Log, where all of our users can tell us what they think will improve their experience.
