  1. If your University business requires that you regularly exchange files with someone off-campus, Secure File Sharing provides a mechanism for inviting the individual to register as a restricted user so he or she can send you files as necessary.  To do so, perform the following steps:
    Enter the following URL into your browser: https://securesend.princeton.edu to display the login screen.

    Log into Secure File Sharing with your registered email address and its associated password in the spaces provided, and click the "Login" button.

    Note - If you have been given an email address in the form firstname.lastname@princeton.edu, you must log into Secure File Sharing with that address, not with the traditional netid@princeton.edu

  2. Your Secure File Sharing session opens on the File Manager page.  

    Click the “Send File” tab to move to the appropriate tab for sending files.

    NOTE - Secure File Sharing is Java-based, so when you switch to the "Send File" tab, a dialog box may be displayed asking you to allow a Java applet to access your computer.  Clicking "Allow" will enable you to continue with the invitation process.
