Read on to find out how to create a transfer protected by email with LockTransfer.


  • Step 1 : Click on « Transfer » after clicking on mceclip0.png


  • Step 2 : Drag and drop or select the files on your computer.
    • To send an entire folder, which would contain files and sub-folders, you will have to drag and drop it (it will not be possible to select it from the folder explorer)


In the next step, you will be able to add files to your transfer or delete some of the files you have selected.



🚨 If the transfer contains multiple documents, the upload will be done as an archive on the recipients' side.
  • Step 3 : In the tab By Email, set up the sending parameters

    • the email addresses of your recipients (you can add as many as you wish)
🚨It is possible to add a list of several recipients directly: to do this, copy and paste the list of email addresses, separating them with a ; (semi-colon)
    • download receipts (optional) : you will be able to receive an email notification in real time when the recipient(s) will download the documents (the email will contain technical information such as the IP address, the OS of the recipient and the time and date of the download).

    • an expiry date (optional) : date at which the transfer will be automatically archived and therefore not accessible to recipients (whether or not there have been any downloads).

    • a description (optional) : it will appear in the email received by the recipients and can be used to specify the purpose of the transfer


Once all the parameters are set up, you can send your transfer by clicking on « Send » : the files will be encrypted and the transfer created.

🚨To see what the recipient(s) will receive, read the article presenting the recipients view when receiving a transfer.
