A drop is a chunk of space you can use to store and share anything privately, like pictures, videos, audio, documents, etc... In doing so, there is no need to hassle with accounts, registration, or providing an email address, because Drop.io won't ask for them. In fact, that would go against Drop.io's basic philosophy which highlights explicit privacy through trust and transparency.

In addition, drops are neither "searchable" nor are they "networked" so they are only ever accessible to those whom you explicitly grant access. Your drop is protected from search engines and your privacy is protected by your custom URL, so in the end drops simply exist online as private points for exchange between individuals or groups.

Ultimately, drop.io is perfect for anybody who has something to share online. All free drops start at 100MB and you can create as many as you want. Purchase upgrade codes to expand your drop size up to 5GB and to assign your drop a custom URL under 7 characters.
