When you send or receive a file through Norishare, the first thing you see is a preview of the file. Most of the time, looking at the preview is enough and there is no need to download the file. If your “Downloads” folder is cluttered with files you only read once or twice, Norishare is for you!
We support previews for most files, including archives (ZIP, RAR, etc). As of today, we do not know of any other online service providing the same level of preview as Norishare.
We respect our users’ privacy as much as technically and legally possible. We do not track you, we do not share your files with anybody, and we actually delete files when they expire. The only data we have to gather for technical & legal reasons are:
Note that an automated part of Norishare reads and converts the files to create the previews. No human has access to read the uploaded files or their previews, apart from you and your recipients, of course.
If a recipient receives files considered illegal under French jurisdiction, we may be legally bound to disclose the sender’s IP address to the authorities.
Norishare uses 6 techniques to achieve a minimal carbon footprint:
Norishare can be used from any device with a web browser: laptop, mobile phone, tablet or desktop. It does not need any installation, even to display previews of file formats such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Photoshop, Quicktime, MIDI etc.
For convenience, some web browsers like Google Chrome on Android will propose you to add Norishare to your home page. This will install Norishare on your device in a very light way (called “Progressive Web App”) that will allow you to upload files into Norishare from another mobile application. The application will always be up to date, requires no permission and takes less storage space than a small picture.
Norishare is created by a small team of passionate creators from Normandy, France! We have started creating web applications professionally in 2011 and never stopped improving ever since.
The servers are also hosted in France.
