There are several websites out there that offer file sharing across the internet. The common workflow or logic is, you upload your file to these file sharing sites, then you will get a download link to download the files you uploaded. However, most file sharing websites, requires registration in order for you to upload files for sharing. Among the well known file sharing sites that requires registration is dropbox.com, 4shared.com, mediafire.com, rapidshare.com, filefactory.com and many others.

Though these websites offer free signup, still many people find it annoying if you require them to sign up before you are able to upload your files for sharing.

However, there is one website I know that allows you to share your files anonymously. That is, you do not need to register or sign up in order to upload your files for sharing. The site I am referring to is http://wikisend.com.

Here are the steps to use wikisend.com in sharing your files:

1.) Using your web browser, go to http://wikisend.com.

2.) In that page, you shall see the Upload tab open by default. Please use the Browse button to locate the file in your computer to upload for sharing.

3.) Please note that the service only allows uploading one file at a time and the file shall be NOT bigger than 100MB.

4.) After selecting the file to upload using the Browse button, click on the Upload button.
