About Binfer
Binfer is an early-stage high-tech startup that has developed a direct device-to-device secure file transfer and private communication platform. Binfer moves large files fast, enables secure file synchronization, secure web drop, private messaging, and more all without storing user’s data on any cloud or external servers.
Your data should be yours. We are facing unprecedented concerns over privacy, security and misuse of data. Until now, choices were extremely limited. People were forced to upload their data onto third party systems in order to share them. Uploading to third-party servers increases transfer time often with file size limits. Communication and messaging is stored out of user’s hands. Binfer is changing that, by providing a secure, easy and reliable way to communicate, without ever having to give up control of the data.

Come join us, and help us pioneer the next generation of secure communications.
