I am bit confused with choosing which Stack Exchange site to ask my question on. I fear it may be downvoted if I post in the wrong community.

The question I want to ask is:


I am trying to find a file sharing service or website which offers a password protect feature to a file. The thing is I can find a website which offer the feature as below:

  1. Upload a file to get a password
  2. Give it to a friend who wants to download the file
  3. He goes to the webpage and unlocks the file using the password I gave, and then downloads the file

This is the the usual procedure, eg for Dropbox.

But what I need is something different, as explained below.

  1. Upload a file to get a password
  2. Give the password to a friend who wants to download the file
  3. He goes to the web page and first downloads the file and then unlocks it using the password

Is this possible? Does any file hosting site offer such a service?

I know that I can use password protected .rar files, but it becomes impossible for me to do it that way because I change the password frequently, and I have a lot of files, some quite large files too.
So the processing power and time to do it that way is not efficient.


Please suggest a Stack Exchange site where I can post the above question.

It might be on-topic at Software Recommendations. They have stringent requirements for questions, so be sure to read their Help Center and Question quality guidelines.

Questions asking for recommendations are otherwise almost completely out of scope for the rest of Stack Exchange. If your thought was to ask at Web Applications, please don't. It will be closed there.
